I DROPPED OUT MY SENIOR YEAR. WILL ALL OF THE COURSES I COMPLETED COUNT TOWARDS THIS DIPLOMA?
Once you are ready to start the program, our Registrar will analyze your transcripts and apply credits for any course work you completed that fulfils our credit transfer requirements. Elective credits do not apply since the electives we offer are necessary in you earning your career certification.
HOW MUCH TIME WILL I NEED TO DEDICATE TO MY COURSE WORK?
We recommend that you dedicate 6-10 hours per week to your coursework. Your Academic Coach will help keep you on track!
WHEN CAN I WORK ON MY COURSES?
Courses are self-paced and taught in an online learning environment available to all students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
WHAT IF I NEED HELP WITH MY COURSEWORK?
Your Academic Coach will connect you with one of our certified instructors to provide you with additional academic support, when needed.
WHAT IS THE CAREER PORTFOLIO?
To arm you with the tools you need to find a job, we will teach you to create essential documents, such as your resume and a cover letter.
IF I CHOOSE A MAJOR LIKE CHILD CARE, HOW WILL I TRAIN TO WORK WITH CHILDREN?
While we provide you with all of the coursework you need in order to qualify for a Childcare Certification, you will find a local agency in your community to fulfill the hands on training hours required.
WHY SHOULDN’T I JUST GET MY GED?
A GED or General Equivalency Diploma requires you to pay for an exam. Preparing for the exam does not always provide you with the learning opportunities you could benefit from completing coursework. Additionally, Smart Horizons Career Online High School gives you the benefit of also earning a career certificate. We encourage you to make the decision that is right for you so research all of your options so that you can make an informed decision. Also, ask friends, family and employers what their opinion is!
