The main goal of the MEP is to assist your child in completing graduation requirements for a high school diploma. The MEP may also assist students with the steps they need to prepare to attend a college or university, earn a vocational certification, or enter the military.

Before your child's graduation, the MEP may assist them with the following tasks:

  • Complete requirements for high school graduation or its equivalent
  • Complete work-interest surveys/interest inventories to determine potential career opportunities and interests
  • Gather necessary documents such as transcripts, resume, and community work logs
  • Apply to college* or vocational school
  • Visit local colleges and trade schools or meet with a military recruiter
  • Learn about options for paying for college

*The words “college” and “university” are used interchangeably in this document.

NOTE: Contact a high school counselor, college advisor, or migrant recruiter for more information on any of these topics.


After your child graduates from high school there are many opportunities that may be available to them. Specific information about options available can be found in the linked content below.
