Adults in Illinois can now get a high school diploma despite their age.

Governor Bruce Rauner signed a new law Friday that allows anyone to get their certificate.

The previous cutoff was age 21, anyone older could only earn their GED.

Supporters said a diploma has more advantages than a GED because it equips adults with better skills for postsecondary education and the workplace.
