CCC outdoor signageThe Clinton Community College Adult Basic Education department will celebrate the 2017 High School Equivalency Program Graduation on Tuesday, June 27 at 6:00 p.m. in the Clinton Community College Auditorium, 1000 Lincoln Boulevard, Clinton.

Thirty-two students will participate in the ceremony with graduate addresses to be given by four students. Since 2003 the Paul B. Sharar Foundation and the Eastern Iowa Community College Board of Directors have partnered to offer each graduate of the EICCD High School Equivalency program a three credit hour scholarship or the equivalent cost of a program that would lead to immediate employment.

The High School Equivalency program provides individuals who did not graduate from high school an opportunity to earn their diplomas. To do so, the graduates are required to successfully pass five different state approved tests in Language Arts Writing, Social Studies, Science, Language Arts Reading, and Math. Minimum scores are required for each test area as well as an overall minimum average score. Completing the tests requires weeks, sometimes months of dedicated study.
