Do employers check high school diplomas?
For the most part, employers don’t really care whether you went to school or what degrees you have, and most of them don’t bother to verify your credentials unless they are required to do so.
Do high schools keep copies of diplomas?
Call or email your high school and speak to someone about ordering a new copy of your diploma. Some schools do give out replacement diplomas themselves, and some don’t. If yours can’t, then they will at least be able to send you to the party who can help you.
Do you have credit to transfer from an accredited institution?
Top regionally accredited institutions are unlikely to even consider credits from a program without regional accreditation. The standard transfer application process will not provide any obvious paths to transferring the credits or credentials you’ve earned in your nationally accredited program.
How do you check if my credits will transfer?
You should check with your target school’s enrollment/transfer office for course equivalency maps or tables with your prior colleges and universities. If they don’t have any, that will signal they may not be as transfer friendly as other institutions.
What do colleges look at when you transfer?
Even if you are transferring between your sophomore and junior years, expect colleges to ask for all of your high school credentials—SAT / ACT scores, transcripts, etc. They will want to see your college grades and will evaluate the degree of difficulty both in your course selection and in where you earned the credits.
What do I do if I lose my high school diploma?
If a lost diploma is a problem, there is no need to panic. Lost high school records, both transcripts and a diploma, can be easily replaced. The first logical step is to get a copy from the high school where you graduated. The school you attended will first ask for a copy of the academic transcripts.
