Posted by on
My daughter just returned from getting the worst news of her life. She was told her diploma from Jefferson High School was "fake", "worthless" for her to use as proof to enroll today at Hair Design School. These horrible crooks destroyed all she worked for. She paid the money herself she earned at a pizza parlor. Did the program everyday in here room taking this very serious for her future. I cannot believe that this company can rip off people and ruin months of hard work that they are proud of! I want my money back, and they said no. I am pissed that they ripped my daughter off but more angry with the fact that they hurt her hard work and made her cry!!!

Unfortunately, your daughter is not the first to be taken in by this scam. If she wants her high school diploma, the only way for her to do it is to go out and get her GED. Most community colleges offer the program and, from what I understand, it's not horribly expensive either.
Molly76 on 01/05/2012:
This school tests for a GED. Did you ask if the hair design school excepts a GED? Some schools will only except a high school diploma and not an equivalency.

Maybe, your daughter can find a different hair school that will except her GED.
Molly76 on 01/05/2012:
OOps, I read that wrong! It's not even a GED!
Cwazychicken on 01/05/2012:
GED'S I think are about 10 dollars per test (or depending where you live, that's the rate here in South Dakota.) I would never trust an online site with a GED or diploma being up for grabs like that. Unless its from a local university itself, I see a lot of local advertisements for universities who offer these kinds of things for probably much less than what sites like that charge.
At Your Service on 01/05/2012:
Jefferson High School Online is nothing more than a diploma mill. In their defense, they make absolutely no claims that they're accredited or even trying to seek accreditation. For $199 you get a piece of paper that has no real validity.

I'm a strong believer in a good education. Gaining a GED may not sound as impressive as having an actual high school diploma, but it's a very good start for correcting the mistakes they make in their past. Once people can feel the real sense of accomplishment a GED can provide, they can continue with local accredited colleges or universities.
Chris on 02/20/2014:
Yeah I found it hard to believe my sister got her diploma by taking 100 question test and it being legit. I took the GED 2 years ago and it was like 100 question per section. Math,English,reading, etc.
Brandi E on 03/20/2014:
Oh yes! I am a part of the scam too obviously... I paid 230$ for my alleged GED and transcript and was told I would receive it in five business days and I have yet to see it. This is a lesson learned for me and I definitely think something should be done about the CROOKS!!!!!!
Hellina on 09/30/2014:
I am glad ya gave me a heads up on this so call school about paying for the diploma I was about to pay it to and I glad I didn't they should be brought to federal court for this or something it so wrong what they doing to thousands of people.
Brian on 11/22/2014:
i am really sorry to hear this news. i dont understand as i completed this online HS coarse got my diploma and used it successfully to get into Rutgers University where i got my bachelors degree in business managment. so this school is very much so legit.

Do Not Be Scammed By These People I'm Telling People This So Read Carefully
Posted by on
Hello everyone my name is Joey I recently came across Jefferson high school online. I was thinking you know, I need a Diploma. I took the test of coarse it was easy, they give you several tries to get questions right in other words you cannot fail this test. Well I tried to use this so called diploma at a Job not even a high paying job 9.00 an hour job and they wouldn't accept it the guy told me that that wasn't nothing but a sheet of paper that anyone can make right there at home. Boy was I mad here I am out of 200.00 couldn't get the job so I email jefferson high school back, they claim they give refunds if your not satisfied. They emailed me back and said that I should have read all the instructions beforehand and they couldn't refund my money the only real way to get a GED is the hard way.

So everyone if you want to pay 200.00 for a fake worthless piece of paper go ahead, its not real it pisses me off to think about all the money these people are making off of crap that you can make yourself I learned the hard way don't buy anything from this place hopefully this message was helpful no online ged is real.

Did you spend 4 years online with Jefferson High School? If you had stayed in high school you may have realized that there is no such way to get a GED so quickly. You were scammed but it was your fault. Its also obvious you didn't read their rules which would have told you that they would be scamming you. Go back to school!
Anonymous on 10/21/2009:
In most states, they only have to educate you to certain age, so "go back to school" would be impossible. OP, call your local high school and they should be able to get you in touch with local and accredited GED programs. They do this with their over age students. They can help you. Good luck to you!

ANY school or college that is at its base proprietary is either accredited nationally or locally. Most people are told that the associate degree they get at a proprietary school will transfer to a state university...no, not if they are not nationally accredited, something they don't like spending the money to have. I worked for one for about six months that did nothing but lie to students about this very thing.
mote on 10/22/2009:
Well you cannot just go back to school when you have kids I'm 27 years old I don't remember any thing from 10th grade,you got to undrstand not everyone has that chance to go back to school or even take hours out of your day to go sit in some class and learn this stuff all over again,wife works nights I work days so its not going to happen.I was just making sure no one else buys anything from these people they told me that the diploma they offer will work for any employer,that's all I wanted,not to go to college so if anyone has anything smart to say keep it to yourself
PepperElf on 10/22/2009:
What you need to do is go online and put THIS in your search
GED site:.gov "state name"

(where "state name" is whatever state you live in)

This will restrict your search to official government sites, which means you get the real information and not all the scam sites

Since you're not the first person who's been in that situation you can be assured that there ARE options available for adults with children


Lastly.... You can go back to school if you have kids. It's not always EASY but you can.

You don't need to memorize everything you learned from the 10th grade. What you do is look up what's available in the local area for obtaining your GED.



msnanny on 10/22/2009:
Mote, although I applaud you for attempting to improve your education you have to remember that nothing worthwhile having is easy. Google is your friend and you could have saved yourself the time and $200 if you would have searched for reviews for this scam outfit. You are not the first person to be scammed by them.

Take the advise of the previous posters and contact your local school district for GED classes. They are generally at night to accommodate the working adult. Good luck!

Thank your higher power and government for the opportunity to receive a higher education. Now go forth and get one. Contact your local community college for information on how to earn a legitimate G.E.D. or better yet, explore your options on earning a high school diploma. Google achievethedream.com - you may find some useful information there to help get you started. Wishing you well in your life journey.

The fact that you are eager to obtain your GED is a positive, but attempting to take a short cut in life by paying money to these fly-by-night hoaxes with the audacity to call themselves colleges, is a little disconcerting to me. Nothing in life worth having comes easy. As Lexophiliac suggested...go out and do it! Best wishes in whatever you choose.

You should be able to get a GED locally without divine intervention. Personally I would avoid the internet for this purpose.

Please follow through - you need at least a GED to get most any job. Good luck.

That's the problem with a lot of private schools online or in person like Everest. You need to do your homework on the institution you go to. A lot of the transcripts are not accepted at regular colleges. Sorry you got ripped off.
Alain on 07/27/2011:
You're 100% right about these folks. They are completely worthless and their 'diplomas' may as well be written on TP. As MissLeopard indicated, researching before you sign up with them is always advisable. I believe the US Dept. of Education has some hints on how to find a legitimate for profit school or program. http://www.ed.gov

Jefferson High School Sucks!! And Is Fake!!!!!
Posted by on
So recently I applied for the Jefferson Online Diploma Passed it and ordered my diploma.. During this time I was enrolled at The Art Institute Of Pittsburgh, the day I handed them my diploma and Transcript's it was the most embarrassing and devastating day of my life.. My self motivation was out the window.. I thought I had actually accomplished something.. Not only that I paid a great deal for my graduation package (244.00) These people are just setting back a collecting money off people who are trying to do something to better themselves and for them to do that to people is just WRONG!! This site needs to be handled!! For stealing money from people, and getting peoples confidence up and basically jerking it right back from them.. I started out with nothing, got a fake diploma, did 2 weeks of College Assignments and had it all taken away from me within a blink of an eye.. Now I'm back to where I started.. I'm not going to give up though I'm going to just have to go and get my GED that's the only way I'm going to be able to achieve my goals I have in store for the future..

If it's any consolation you just earned your degree from the school of hard knocks.
GenuineNerd on 11/23/2010:
You shouldn't have dealt with that diploma mill in the first place. The best way to get a high school diploma is to go through adult education classes at your local school district or community college, or through a state-chartered online school. Jefferson High School is a scam outfit, and their diplomas aren't worth the toilet paper they're printed on.
Anonymous on 11/24/2010:
JHS isn't a scam per se, but it definitely isn't top notch either.. It clearly states in their FAQ's that before taking their equivalency test, a person should research that the employer/institute they are interested in, will recognize their program as an accredited diploma.

That said, GN is right in that it's better to go through local options, for about the same amount of money you can get your GED through a community college that will be good anywhere.
Best of luck!

I wanted to get my hs diploma because I dropped out just months away from graduating because I got pregnant, well now I have four kids 5 and under and I want to better my education to teach my children that with a lot of hard work you can do what you want in life. Well I came across Jefferson High School, and started reading once I saw that you could get your diploma in as little as 5 days a red flag went up. But I decided to keep reading a see what else the website said, so many things just made me think that it was all bs so I thought well if there has been a problem with this school I will find it just by searching it on google and in doing that I found so many people that have been scammed by this place, shouldn't even call it a school. And it makes me so mad because they are taking peoples hard earned money by promising what they can't give. You pay 2-3 hundred dollars for something that you think is going to make your life so much better and finally get you a stepping stone in life and find out that it's like walking in there with a handwritten diploma its just as useless. And the sad part is, there is nothing that you can do about it. You just got bent over and f***ed raw with a broom stick in the no no place. Don't fall for it I ALWAYS research EVERYTHING online that wants money and 100% of the time everything that I have looked up someone else had been scammed by it and so nicely went to google to post the bad news so no one else fell for it.

P.S. Right on the website it says under the FAQ's that a person should check with the school they wish to attend prior to taking the course, in the event that school doesn't recognize a JHSO diploma. So, if anything, beenscammed, should have read through the facts a little better before taking the course.

In all fairness CJ the complaint is very confusing. He says he purchased a diploma. I think it would have been better to say he signed up for and paid for an online course and earned a diploma. He also says that the collage wouldn't accept it but other companies did. Does that mean other collages did or that employers accepted it?

hey do anyone know how to get the money back from this scam out school?
DebtorBasher on 01/04/2012:
I know this is an old review, but 'Get Money' just posted a comment on it....
It looks like there is no fee for registration or taking the exams...BUT you have to buy a package for $199.99 which will include the diploma. So, In a sense, they ARE buying the diploma but only after the exams are taken.

The site states:

1) How much does it cost to take the equivalency exam?
There are no “upfront” payments for this service. You can take the interactive online test as often as necessary to reach your desired score outcome. Upon completion of the self-test you may apply for the Graduation Package that enables you to document your accomplishment and includes a Diploma, Transcripts and lifetime program completion verification. The total cost for the service is $199.00. Good luck in reaching your goals.

I really want to do anything in my power to obtain my high school diploma. My cousin told me about this school because she already took the test and paid the money and she said her diploma will arrive in 8 to 15 days. I want to be able to tell her if she was scammed, so she can go through the real programs to obtain a real one if this one is fake.

It is not real, you may receive some sort of "diploma" from this place, but it will be absolutely useless. The key to any diploma is accreditation and they are not going to have any.

Your best bet is to contact the closest Community College and get enrolled in a GED class. Take the class, study and take the GED exam.

I applaud your desire to get the education you need.
Molly on 02/10/2012:
From their website. Run away!!!
"JHSO has not sought nor been approved by the US DOE, CHEA or DETC organizations and does not represent itself to be an �Accredited� program of any of these organizations."
Cwazychicken on 02/10/2012:
Yea, I think the only thing you can really get is a GED after high school and like md said, local colleges offer those for I think about 10 bucks (maybe more now) per test. But a ged is not a bad thing. Sure its not a diploma but you can get somewhere with it. Its legit and it isn't a scam like these companies try to get people into signing up for.
CowboyFan on 02/10/2012:
The purpose of education is to learn. Having a diploma is meaningless, if you do not know the information and skills that the diploma represents. This is especially true, if it is from a questionable on-line school, which any potential employer can look up on-line.

I applaud you for wanting to get a better education and improve yourself. As a suggestion and reason to take real courses from a real program, please reread your comment. There are a number of grammatical, word usage, and English problems in it. I would focus on learning to write well, because nothing says education more than proper word and English usage in written documents. Regardless of the job you are seeking, how you fill out the application and how you speak, makes a big difference in obtaining employment. This is not a criticism, but a suggestion, since everyone started out at one time having problems with writing and speaking properly. Good Luck
lexophiliac on 02/10/2012:
Many community colleges offer an adult high school diploma program, so the opportunity to earn one is never lost at any age or stage in life. There are some online high schools that can issue valid high school diplomas, most programs advertising themselves as an online alternative to traditional high school should be regarded as suspect.

Before enrolling in an online high school program, a student should carefully investigate whether a diploma from that program is accepted by colleges and universities, businesses, and the military. The military will accept valid online diplomas, but they are classified in Tier 2 along with GEDs and other high school equivalencies rather than in Tier 1 with traditional high school diplomas.

I'm not sure exactly what school you are referring to because there are Jefferson High Schools all over the United States. But if all you did was lay out some money for a piece of paper, I would not expect colleges to attach much credence to it.

If you took some courses, passed a bona fide GED exam, or did something to earn the credentials, that's a different story. However, $236 doesn't buy a lot of education.

What, exactly, was promised yo you?

Venice09 on 04/04/2011:
A $236.00 piece of paper is not going to be accepted by any college unless there is something to back it up. Did you really think that was all you needed? Now you know why the school is on the black list.
Anonymous on 04/04/2011:
Oh, I see. It's WWW.jeffersonhighschoolonline.com . Their homepage says you can take a test right now, and if you pass, you will have a real diploma within a few days for 199.00 . Yeah, right.

Here, this is from their FAQ's page:

3) Are the diplomas offered by JHSO recognized and accepted worldwide?
JHSO provides a stringent internal review process for its overall program and particularly for its interactive learning platform and completion program. This program offers an accelerated format with Award Certificates upon completion. It is truly not right for everyone but works very well for the majority of people that complete it. This is an equivalency program that Awards a Diploma, Transcripts and ongoing verification service. However, each individual employer and institution are unique and you should check with them prior to completing this program to make sure they will accept it’s motivational and achievement basis.

JHSO prides itself in its thorough ongoing evaluation of communications with students. The processes for program review and monitoring within its programs is proprietary in nature and designed to meet the needs of its students as they strive to reach their individual goals

DebtorBasher on 04/06/2011:
Yes, I see they ARE a rip off...I just looked at the site and decided to try out the test myself, without reading the questions...I just clicked on any answer on the first page...just to see if someone with really bad answers could get a 'diploma'...well, here's what happens.

When I randomly answered the questions on the first page, I clicked to continue.

The first page came back up with the message telling me that I am still on the same page and may want to check out the 'hints' or 'clues' before moving on...that's when I noticed at the bottom of each question I had wrong was an obvious clue (they might as well just tell you the answer)...so I stopped there, I had seen enough. What it looks like, is that EVERYONE who takes this test WILL pass and though I didn't go any further, I'm sure they will tell you what a great job you've done and recommend you 'buy' your diploma. Here is an example of one of their questions which I answered wrong and at the end, you will see their 'helpful clue'.....

Amniotes vertebrates are generally classified into three orders: Reptilian, Ayes (birds), and Mammalian. Of the following, which group of three animals contains one member of each order?

A) house sparrow, garter snake, African elephant
B) African lion, sea otter, herring gull
C) ostrich, American robin, Norway rat
D) timber rattlesnake, fence lizard, leopard

That's true DIRM...but you know what I mean...Heck, I can print up diplomas by the dozen and sell them...but it will mean nothing to the buyer.

Ripoff
Posted by on
I just took the test and got an A woo hoo! It was too easy my dog can pass it! But before I went any further I researched the company and ended up in here. Thanks for all the great reviews and comments I was tempted to order my shiny new diploma, I am glad that My3cents.com was here to help. I will look into real GED tests and just do it. I am sure it will feel very rewarding to do so.

Ripoff Or Real?
Posted by on
EL PASO, TEXAS -- I am a 34 yr old male.I have been out of high school for eighteen yrs., And every year I say that I am going to get my GED, but unfortunately something comes up and I have to postpone it another year. I came across this "Jefferson High School" and I decided to check it out, they give these tests and for every wrong answer, they give a hint so you can get the question right..You see, you never fail the test and once you are done with all the tests. They ask you to pay 199 dollars so they can send you your diploma!

I have a problem with this because I do not know if this is a ripoff or real? Is there someone out there that can help me with this?

The $199.00 you send them is real. The "diploma" the send you is not. Use your head! State's board of educations issue GED's.

This came straight from their website:
"You cannot receive a GED® via an online service. You must test locally."

I hope you will get your GED as soon as possible as an achievement in your life.

This posting should remind everybody to "Stay in School"

Unless you are planning on furthering your education which I doubt, I would hold on to that change for something of value.

Their testing procedure does sound similar to the High School that I attended.

I know lots of people who have did online programs or at home programs and have great jobs including myself so if you have the money and the time you should try it out

Listen to tnChuck. this has been discussed here before. Get your G.E.D. locally. Do it. It's not that hard or time consuming, and you'll be scads better off.

It essentially gives you a diploma, which is what most employers are going to look at. Very, very few employers are going to ask "is this an online diploma or an actual brick and mortar school." It's essentially paying fare for the job bus.
