Adult High School Diploma (AHSD)

Students enrolled in Durham Tech’s Gateway to College Adult High School Diploma program are required to complete 22 units of credit, which include four electives. An official transcript will be reviewed to determine which units completed in high school satisfactorily qualify for transfer into the AHSD program.
