GED Mountain Climber
What Happens If You Get an Online Diploma?

Online diploma mills sell you a diploma for a few hundred dollars, based on an online test that doesn’t really measure anything. Some buyers just lose their money. Others get fired or kicked out of school. Twenty states have laws against using a fake diploma, and Congress is considering making it a federal crime to use a fake high school diploma or fake GED certificate. The good news is that you can get a real GED certificate fast, and we can help.

Online High Schools Say They’re Accredited.

But they aren’t. Fake high school websites use fake accreditation agencies. They look official, but it is still a scam. If colleges don’t accept it, it’s not real accreditation. Just call a local college to see what they say. See how the GED certificate is accredited.

How to Spot a Fake
  1. It’s based on a GED test online or life experience.
  2. It promises you a diploma in a few days or weeks.
  3. It tries to sell you better grades or transcripts.
  4. It’s not a member of the Better Business Bureau.

Some Sites Offer an Online GED Certificate!

But it’s a lie. The real GED test is not given online. It’s government-administered and tests real skills. If you prepare the right way, it’s easy, and your GED certificate is worth a lot more than a fake. Learn how we can help you pass.

Why a GED Certificate Is Best

The GED test is prepared by the American Council on Education and given by your state government. You earn an official state GED certificate that jobs and colleges accept. We walk you through it one step at a time, giving you exactly what you need to make it easy. You might think you can’t do it, but you can. We make it easy.

What About Studying at Home?

There are a few legitimate study-at-home high schools. But be wary. They can be expensive and take two to four years of study. Even then, some colleges or jobs may not accept it because at most online high schools, you take the test online or at home. But you can study at home for the GED test. We make prep easy, fast, and tailored to your needs. Check out a trial free GED online course to see what it’s like.
