Payments are made electronically through the vendor of choices website once the application has been entered into the system. Voucher codes can be retrieved  by contacting one of the Career Technical Planning District offices.

There is no specified time limit for an adult learner to complete all the testing requirements to earn the Certificate of High School Equivalence Diploma.
