Is This Legit Or Ripoff?
Posted by on
My son needs his HS diploma and this seems easier than going back to school for a year. Just wondering if anyone has done this. Is this legit? Or a ripoff?

Beats me but if it sounds too good to be true it usually is.
jktshff1 on 12/29/2007:
Get with your Local Board of Education...they have GED classes available and the diploma's are recognized by most higher learning schools and employers
. Don't fall for spending a lot of cash.

Just because it's easier doesn't mean it's better

I agree with all 3 replies so far.
Starlord on 12/29/2007:
Basically, I agree with the others, but am somewhat confused, as your post does not make a lot of sense. More details would be most helpful. From what you said, I take it your son needs his high school diploma, and he has to go back to school? I don't see how this is a rip-off. Don't feel bad, I was asked by a prospective employer for a transcript from my high school. I told them they would have to send for it and gave them the address. Indiana law is specific. Anyone can write and say they are thinking of hiring me, and they get a copy of my transcript with no problem. They cannot, by law, send me a copy of my transcript. I think that trumps your situation.
mad at you on 12/29/2007:
Sorry my post made no sense star.My son (not a good student)quit school middle 11th grade, did finish 2yrs. vo-tech though.He is not planning to be a doctor. He is a certified and competent welder.In order to work in a large manufacturing center he needs his H.S. diploma,without it he works for small companys,no benefits.I agree the H.S. is best.At near twenty he is not going back now.I'm just asking if a diploma from Jefferson would be any good.
jktshff1 on 12/29/2007:
mad...GO TO YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL BOARD AND ASK ABOUT THE GED PROGRAM! don't get ripped off. Please try there first!
Jambra on 12/29/2007:
It's a diploma mill. You pay money and get a diploma, no studying necessary. If a company finds out about it, not only will your son not get the job, it could also affect any future applications. It's also dishonest. If he wants a high school diploma, he can get a GED.
Ponie on 12/29/2007:
I agree with the others. The diploma you buy isn't worth the paper it's written on. Get him in the GED program. Display some 'tough love'--keep after him to study so he'll get that diploma. He won't think so now, but later in life he'll thank you for keeping after him.
CrystalSword on 12/29/2007:
Unfortunately, I only completed 9th grade back in the 60's, my parents felt they needed me at home to babysit more than I needed to complete my education. Dad's reasoning was that I would probably end up pregnant and have to get married anyhow...how wrong he was!!!

Anyhow, I finally applied at a place where I had to have my diploma or at the very least a GED...no time for night school, no transportation to go to the place where the GED testing was for both days...I borrowed a vehicle for ONE day. Normally the GED test is given in 5 parts, 2 on the first day and the other 3 on the next day, total time for the testing was 6 1/2 hours. I went to the community college and asked if could challenge the test, take it all in one day and not go through night school...they laughed, but said it was my money.

Mind you, I had been out of school for 17 years and had been through a couple miserable marriages, and had three kids, but I had to have a decent job to support them. I took the first two sections of the test and was the first one finished, I asked for the 3rd test...teacher said "tomorrow"...I told her, my wheels wouldn't be available the next day, so she relented and gave me the third test, then the 4th and shaking her head finally gave me the 5th test...completed in one day, in 3 1/2 hours.

I got my GED in the mail two days later, an average grade of a B+ and a hand written note from the teacher and the main office that neither of them thought I had a prayer, but after correcting the first two tests while I took the 3rd, she had no doubt that I could pull it off.

Good luck to your son, if I could do it after being out of school 17 years, he can do it!
jktshff1 on 12/29/2007:
Crystal, Great Post. Proud to make your acquaintance.
Ya are what you make yourself out to be. (BA)
Had kind of the same problem with my dad.
Ya got my trust.
Starlord on 12/29/2007:
Mad, now that you have provided some more info, I understand your post. CrystalSword is my other half, and I am proud of her for what she did. I barely graduated from high school (long story,) and was upset when my sister took the test for a GED. I didn't feel it was fair I hung in there and earned my diploma, and my sister quit and later went back and took a test and had a piece of paper that was as accepted as my diploma. After a while, I came around to the belief that she worked as hard to earn her GED as I did my diploma. Have your son take the GED test. Every place I have ever seen counts the GED as the same level as a high school diploma. Jefferson is, as someone pointed out, a diploma mill, you pay your money and they do issue you an impressive diploma that isn't worth the powder it would take to blow it to he**. I wish your son the best of luck, I am at the end of my working life, having become disabled, and wish I could get a job again. I never thought I would, but I miss having a job and despise enforced inactivity. Have him get his GED, please. He won't regret that like he would the embarrassment of getting fired because of fraudulent paperwork.
mad at you on 12/29/2007:
Thanks to you all,that is what I was thinking worthless piece of paper.Maybe he realizes how important it is and
will go get the GED.
jktshff1 on 12/30/2007:
MAKE HIM GET THE GED....looks as if you have some say so in what he does.
Roq5 on 01/22/2008:
Hello all,
I am in a similar situation, and I read the info for Jefferson High online program because I am looking into helping my husband get his GED. When I arrived at the "accreditation" information, it clearly states that only the "International Accrediting Body of Online Schools" accreditates this diploma...reading further it gets rather wordy (like me ;p) and basically says nothing except they are accredited by the IABOS...which does not help my husband, as the jobs he is looking for are not a part of the IABOS. He is a manager of a sporting goods store, and we'll be moving to a bigger city in a few months, but the jobs we're trying to find will not accept "work experience" over a diploma. Also,where we live right now there are no GED courses offered and he will have to drive about 2 hours to the nearest class/testing facility. This is impossible with his schedule at work...Any suggestions?
1MoreTime on 07/31/2008:
Well I do not know about Jefferson high school much. But man I been Researching for negative feedback on this school and I found none. my step brother took this GED test pass it and pay, in days he got his diploma and got a job. I guess nowadays you can get anything online. look at all the school online. any degree you want is online.So why not try it..
DannyJax on 08/07/2008:
Both my mother and sister got their diplomas through a program that evaluates your documented work experience in exchange for credits towards your diploma. Neither of them have had anyone refuse the diploma. My sister was teaching for years with that diploma.

A diploma mill is a place you pay money for a certificate and are not required to test or prove you have worked and learned enough to deserve it. Jefferson requires you to take the test and pass. I own my own company, I would not refuse their certificate if a person used it to get a job with us.

My sons took online courses and have OSHA, Microsoft and A+ Certifications. Valid certs that CSX, Our City, Comcast Cable and several other companies accepted. Online Schools that require testing are are a viable alternative to traditional schools that require testing.

LatinSue on 09/16/2008:
I may be too late to help the original poster, but I hope that anyone else who reads this information will take what I have to say to heart. PLEASE do not buy into these types of scams! This is absolutely, 100% diploma mill material. Jefferson High School online is a fraudulent school, and the supposed accrediting body, International Accredting Body of Online Schools, is a fraudulent accrediting body. Any "school" that promises a diploma or degree for little or no work, based on the results of a "test" you can take until you are satisfied with the results, or based on "life experience" is a diploma mill. The so-called accrediting body is not recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, and there is no accrediting body in existence that internationally accredits online schools. I have been in education for 13 years and in online education for eight years. I am currently the Director of Education for an online career college. We do, on occasion, see students present high school diplomas from online high schools such as Jefferson. I DO NOT accept those students for admission to my school. They must provide me proof of graduation from a legitimate school or proof of a passing score on the GED. I feel sorry for those students that they wasted their hard-earned money on such a scam. If I can save someone else from making that mistake, then I certainly would want to do so.
shaunasandy on 09/24/2008:
I tryed to find some bad stuff about this so called school. I couldn't find any. so I paid 228 dollars for this diploma. when I got it the middle name was wronge. I e-mailed them to let them know. they said they would reprint and send it. I got the second on 2 days ago and the name is still wronge. they didn't fix anything. I tryed to contact them, by e-mail and by phone. the phone is just a voice mail, I haven't been able to speak to anyone. they say leave a message and they will return your call within one business day. well I have called and left messages like 6 times and my husband has called to and they haven't called us back. but when I got this second diploma in the mail, I e- mailed them to let them know it was still wronge. they e-mailed me back and said sorry but we fixed the problem and you have recevied the package. I told them I want my diploma with the right name on it or a full refund. since I have paid a lot of money for this piece of paper. I even faxed them both diplomas and transcripts. I haven't herd anything back. I even contacted 3on your side. I haven't herd anything from them eather, to see if they can help me. so my husband call the credit card company to see if we can get our money back, since it is turning out to be a scam. they are so post to investagate and then call us back. I googled the address that was on my package, and it was a ups store, in Nevada. the business name said I & E on the package. so googled I & E corp. in Nevada and nothing came up. I feel so help less. I though this would be an easy way to get a highschool dilpoma, since I didn't finish highschool. I made it to a senior, but to much stuff was going on in my life at the time to worry about high school. now I'm 21, married and I have a 9month old son. I just figured this would help me out a lot, since I don't have any time to study for a ged since I have a baby that always wants my time. so to anybody who is thinking about getting there diploma from this school...DON'T DO IT!! THERE A SCAM AND I LEARNED THE HARD WAY! :(

Juanito157 on 10/10/2008:
I have read all the reviews concerning this issue and although I can agree that paying for a diploma probably wouldn’t be a good idea especially one that allows u to re-take the test until you achieve the grade you desire. However I’m a 35 year old man with an impressive work history but has unfortunately and very recently found myself in the rate race again, I did not graduate High School and haven’t needed to look for a job in a very long time and I’m quickly finding out that without a diploma or GED, there just isn’t much out there, so I really think this will help me achieve my goals, however I think if you desire to go to college, @ the very least you should inquire with your college of choice before you spend $200 on a diploma from Jefferson High School and make sure they will accept it for enrolment, just for example............ The Local Rail Road is a very high paying job in my area and requires a GED for any employment but they also request a copy of your transcripts, so this diploma would do you no good, but the average job will accept it!! also for FYI The G.E.D program also allows you to re-take the test and as many attempts as needed until you pass as long s your willing to pay a lil $$$ for each attempt… Anyway just my three cents, this site is very helpful and thanks to all who participate
CodyLeeStargrove on 10/16/2008:
I have dealing with this company for a couple weeks now trying to get a copy of diploma. I paid the $200 and took the tests 1 1/2 years ago. A fire took all of belongs including the diploma.
I have been unable to get a job because of this diploma and I still don't have the copy I requested. Instead they offered me the money back. I really, really, really dislike this company. They think that are above the law because they aren't accreditted.
Upper Ed on 10/09/2009:
I work in higher education. Jefferson Online High School is a complete ripoff. I am having to cancel one of my students because her HS transcript is not valid. The Jefferson online website explains, in depth, what accreditation is and how it is achieved, but under all the explanation they state that they are not accredited and are self-auditing.

Stay away. No college or employer will accept a transcript from this place. There's no easy way out when it comes to education.

stacey on 05/04/2012:
Hi ma'm ! my name is stacey I am 24 years old and I was basically in the position your son was in. I tried jefferson because I was literally going to ged classes with some of my friends, until they heard of jefferson, then they left me because jefferson actually worked for them. I got on line took the test that was about 2 hours long and of course I passed everything with 100 or some with an 90 % so I then clicked payment options and set up the payment plan for 79$ to receive my diploma but they don't send it to you until its paid off. but I actually went to a college in Kansas where I resign and they freaking accepted it !! I recently just start April 2, 2012 . all I'm saying is it worked for me, my cousin, and maybe 5 or 6 more of my friends who dropped out !! good luck I really hope this helps you don't be discourage by any of these people go for it!!
kelly on 06/11/2012:
stacey I'm so glad it worked for you but I'm sorry to say this school is a scam !!!! we live in Georgia my husband got this diploma 2 years ago he recently got a job at the prison down here went to work for 2 weeks then got a call from the office telling him that his dipolma was a fake! he was left without a job now we have 3 kids are under bankruptcy and hardly no money this school also has no contact information except for the email they use and when you try to get your money back they will ignore you!!!! so please do not use this site it is a joke!!!!! I wish there was a way to have them shut down.
steven on 07/15/2012:
Those inquiring about if the program is legal or not. I would check with the Better Business Bureau and the board of education in your state. That will give you the answer.

JHSO Standards Accreditation generally means that a school or program has been evaluated by an independent group (such as those above), and meets that accrediting agency's standards. As seen, there are many options for accreditation and the process is VOLUNTARY and it is not "required" to operate by a school defining itself as a private school. Often smaller programs simply cannot afford the cost of such an ongoing review process.

In an effort to keep program cost down and the current motivational based format of JHSO, 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. JHSO incorporates an internal review and self-auditing approach to assure consistent standards that include but are not limited to the following:

I also had a son that had a hard time in school so I didn't just want him to quit without a diploma. So I went online and found Belfort high school diplomas I paid the $200 he took the test with maybe four questions passed the test they mailed me all different types of certificate along with a diploma years later I found out that it wasn't a credit so I would say a rip off.

resse on 03/20/2014:
I been in school for years trying to receive my GED or high school diploma and it was just unlikely for me cause there are to many students and not enough teachers to get me where I need to be they kept telling me that I wasn't ready to test out and all I wanted to know was where I was with every thing in 2014 I test out on-line and failed the test , a month later I test out in school and steal failed the test , so the next month I went back to test out to see where I was and passed the test so all I'm saying is trust God nothing gets past him also in the schools when you take your test and failed you still have to pay when you go back to test again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so stop riding off every one else experience and judge for yourself and if it doesn't work life lesson then you get back in the saddle and try again that life full of chances.

The Diploma From This School Is Absolutely Useless
Posted by on
If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably isn't. The diploma from this school is absolutely useless. Buyer beware! Check the Better Business Bureau web site before you pay these people one cent! The BBB has a warning about them on their web site. Check it out. They suck in a lot of innocent people and take their money. They operate on some remote island.

There is no address, and you can't ever talk with anyone via phone. I've asked them for a list of satisfied consumers - no response.

Still waiting!

Many states now have online charter schools, which are accredited by the state board of education, and is, in most cases, tuition free. A website regarding these online schools: http://www.k12.com

Why pay money to a scam outfit when you could take state-accredited high school courses online?

It sounds like "Jefferson High School" is a diploma mill, which will give a high school diploma to anybody with the money...I wouldn't be surprised if they even give a diploma to your dog or cat. Any outfit that is named after the high school that Richie Cunningham went to on "Happy Days" needs NOT to be trusted. Their diplomas aren't worth the recycled toilet paper they're printed on.

Canadian you could be on to something, why stop at a high school diploma, for $499 they could sell a college degree, $999 a masters, then charge "the graduate" $100 each time they need to send transcripts to an employee as they are looking for a job.

I commend you for wanting to complete you education. Try a local community college. Most offer online courses now and the tuition is cheap. You may qualify for some local grants or maybe a local business will sponsor you. Best of all, there is virtually no risk that your academic record would be questioned. Good luck!
Anonymous on 03/11/2009:
Don't do it! These online diploma/degree mills are generally not legitimate and it could affect any job you apply for. POlice Academies, especially, will check to see if the educational institutes you list on your resume are legitimate, so don't take any chances. Good luck to you!

I agree with what is above. Most local high schools either have or can recommend a GED program. These proprietary programs you have looked into are usually garbage. My brother in law got his GED through our local high school and it has served him well. Just call them :) Good luck to you!

I also agree with above. But also should add that you should take the GED test first and then see what courses you need help in so that you aren't paying for classes that you do not need.

My friend did that and passed on her first try, so she got her GED and didn't need to pay for any classes.

Thanks For The Reviews

HUDSON, WISCONSIN -- I took the online test and passed, went through the steps, but hesitated on paying the 199.00. It just seemed too easy. I googled Jefferson, and this site came up, so I had to read. I'm disappointed that it's not a legit company. I needed my GED for Jobs, not for a college. I read on here, that a college refused to accept it.

Thanks to everyone that wrote a review. You saved me over 200.00.

Many states have online or "virtual" schools now, in which you take high school courses online, and these schools are, in most cases, tuition-free, and are state-chartered. Some even provide computers and high speed internet access as long as you are enrolled. You might want to check into this. A website: http://www.k12.com
