Adult Education Students

Secondary School-aged Adult Education Student

For secondary-school aged persons, adult education programs are one alternative way to earn a high school diploma. This alternative is available to persons under 17 who have withdrawn from school.

For state subsidy purposes, school-aged adult ed students are counted as .1 of a student for each semester-long course taken. For example, a student taking 3 semester-long courses would be counted as .3 of a student for subsidy purposes. The school unit where the student resides receives the subsidy.
