Michigander Training Opportunities



Innovative High School Program Offers Free Tuition for AdultsWho Want to Get Back in the Career Game

For those seeking a new job or career advancement, earning a high school diploma is often the first and most important step. Many employers and positions require at lease a high school education. Great news for job seekers without a high school diploma: the State of Michigan has recently added the innovative Career Online High School (COHS) program to its eligible training provider list (ETPl), which means Michigan adults can now earn their diploma for free. 

A program Focused on Preparing Graduates for Jobs

Career Online High School is not a GED; it's an accredited high school program tailored to adults. In addition to an actual high school diploma, students earn a career certificate in one of eight trade areas, gaining real-world skills they can use in the ground running in the workforce and show employers that they are right for the job. 

Many students graduate in under a year, because the school grants transfer credits for past courses completed--so students get credit for what they've already learned and don't have to start from scratch. 

Tina Calhoun: Detroit Success Story

Detroit native, Tina Calhoun was recently recognized as the first graduate of the program in 2016, after Matrix Human Services and Michigan Virtual University began offering the program in Michigan. Along with extended family, representatives from Macomb Community College administration's team were there to congratulate her- where she enrolled immediately to study to become a child care teacher. 

What did you find worthwhile about the program? "I never had a chance to finish high school when I was younger, and now that my kids are in high school, I wanted to show them I could do it," she said. "My academic coach kept working with me and saying 'you got this.' Finally, I did it! This program taught me I can do anything."

Flexible and Convenient for Busy Adults

The flexible online program, coupled with academic coaches and certified instructors, proves to be a winning combination for adult students. The coaches help motivate students and keep them on track to graduate on time. The online access offers flexibility for those balancing work, family, and life commitments, so students are able to earn their high school diploma on their own schedule.

Visit MVU's Career Online High School enrollment site for more information on enrolling.   It doesn’t cost you anything, and it could pay back thousands more!
