NYS Career Development and Occupational Studies Commencement Credential
Beginning with the 2013-14 school year and thereafter, students with disabilities will be able to earn a New York State (NYS) Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) Commencement Credential. This credential will recognize each individual student’s preparation and skills for post-school employment. Where in the past, many students graduated with an individualized education program (IEP) diploma, this diploma option no longer exists and the CDOS credential provides a more meaningful substitute for these students.
