Hello everyone out there, I just would like to communicate you that there is not local community college that will accept PennFoster high school diploma because is not accredited by most states. I personally called my community college "BTW" Rockland community college or RCC in NEW YORK, to ask if they accept online high school diplomas and the answer was very clear a big " NO". instead they offer me GED and a website where i could studied on my own or go to their GED programs to get ready to take state GED 20 credits. so my advice don't get fool and pay this lump amount of money.
Many of our students have moved on to higher educational institutions. It is also important to understand the accreditation system. Individual states do not accredit schools, they license them. It is not true to state that most community colleges do not accept a Penn Foster diploma. Each college has the right to implement their own entrance requirements.
I am certainly disappointed to hear that your local community college does not accept a distant education diploma. They are missing out on a lot of great students. Also, I can accurately state that recent Penn Foster graduates have been accepted to universities such as Syracuse, Connecticut, and Texas Tech.
If anybody has an issue with a college accepting your diploma, ask them why. If they need to see our accreditation information, it is clearly listed on the website.
Good luck to everybody!
