Career Online High School

Get a FREE high school diploma online at your own pace


The El Paso Public Library, in partnership with Gale/Cengage, offers adults the opportunity to earn an accredited high school diploma and career certificate online through Career Online High School (COHS).

EPPL and the City of El Paso are providing a limited number of free scholarships to qualified adult learners who are looking to advance their careers, prepare for workforce entry or continue their education.

Applicants who successfully complete an online self-assessment and a 2 week prerequisite course, followed by an in-person interview, will be considered for a free scholarship to attain their accredited high school diploma.

Once enrolled, COHS pairs each student with an academic coach, who provides the student with an individual career path, offers ongoing guidance, evaluates performance and connects the student with the resources needed to master the courses. Students will be given up to 18 months to complete the program.

To be considered for the program, applicants must:
  • Be age 19 or over
  • Have an El Paso Public Library card
  • Have access to a computer and Internet either at home or at a library nearest you
  • Be able to dedicate at least 8 hours per week to course study
