High School Equivalency Diploma
The three nationally-recognized assessments used to obtain a state-issued High School Equivalency credential in North Carolina are GED®, HiSET® and TASC. All three High School Equivalency assessments are recognized by the US Department of Education USDOE GEN-14-16 and cover the same content areas. Passing the complete battery of any one of the assessments will lead to the same High School Equivalency Diploma issued by the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges.

English as a Second Language
The English as a Second Language program offers instruction to non-native English speaking adults seeking to improve their English language acquisition skills in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. ESL instruction can help students prepare for employment, advance professionally, prepare for citizenship, and become more involved in neighborhood and community life.
Foundational Adult Basic Education (FABE)
The Foundational Adult Basic Education program is designed for students with intellectual disabilities. It serves as an extension of the Occupational Course of Study (OCS) activities in the local public school system and allows students to continue their education and training in career pathways at the community college level. Students receive instruction in academics (math and language arts) as well as coursework in specific career pathways. Through classroom instruction and internships, students are prepared to find work in Hospitality and Food Service, Gardening and Lawn Maintenance, Commercial Cleaning, and Retail Sales.

A graduation ceremony is held in May of each year, in which all HSE graduates are eligible to participate. The High School Equivalency diploma is issued by the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges in Raleigh.
National Career Readiness Certificate
North Carolina’s Career Readiness Certificate (CRC) is designed to meet the needs of both employers and job seekers in this transitioning economy.
For employers, the CRC offers a reliable means of determining whether a potential employee has the necessary literacy, numeracy, and problem solving skills to be “job ready.”
For job seekers, the CRC serves as a portable credential that can be more meaningful to employers than a high school degree or a resume citing experience in a different job setting.
The CRC is based upon WorkKeys®, a nationally recognized skills assessment tool developed by ACT Inc.
Benefits of North Carolina Career Readiness Certification
Since North Carolina began conferring career readiness certifications, employers have said that training time has decreased, recruiting time has decreased and surveys of employees have found that employees are more satisfied.
