    VAAP participants are generally unable to earn verified credits toward an Advanced Studies or Standard diploma, because students must pass SOL tests (or state-approved substitute tests) to earn verified credits.

    Students who graduate with an Applied Studies diploma or a Certificate of Program Completion may not qualify for postsecondary (college, etc.) financial aid, as these are not recognized by the federal government. Parents are encouraged to contact the postsecondary institution of their choice with questions.
