High School Equivalency Program (HEP)
The High School Equivalency Program (HEP) helps migrant and seasonal farmworkers (or their children) who are 16 years of age or older and not currently attending secondary school to obtain their High School Equivalency (HSE). After completing their HSE, the program helps them to gain employment or enter postsecondary education or training.
You are eligible to participate in the HEP Program if you:
- Lack a High School Diploma or its equivalent
- Are at least 16 years of age and not enrolled in school
- Have participated within the past 24 months, or someone you live with have participated or worked at least 75 days in the last 24 months, in a migrant or seasonal farmwork or agricultural activity
- If you already have a certificate of eligibility from the local migrant education program, you are automatically eligible for our HEP program if you meet the first two bullets listed above.
