Adult Education in Nevada is provided through local programs funded by the Nevada Department of Education. Students are eligible to participate in adult education if 18 years old or over or at least 16 years old and not subject to compulsory attendance; who are in need of basic math, reading, or language skills, a high school diploma or equivalency, and/or English literacy skills.
Adult High School Programs are funded by the Nevada Legislature to provide opportunities for students age 18 or over to complete classes necessary to achieve the Nevada Adult High School Diploma. Programs also provide services to prepare for high school equivalency testing which allows the possibility for students to be awarded credits toward the Nevada Adult High School Diploma upon successful completion.
High School Equivalency (HSE) testing provides adults with the opportunity to earn the Nevada Certificate of High School Equivalency. The certificate is widely recognized as the equivalent of a high school diploma. Nevada test-takers may choose from three approved HSE exams, the GED®, the HiSET®, or the TASC®, to validate their academic skills and knowledge.
