While online colleges have created a popular way to earn degrees online, fewer have ventured to earn their high school diploma online. Since the process isn’t as well known, it might be easier for high school students to fall into the trap of paying for a worthless diploma or GED® from an organization with no official accreditation.

Don’t let yourself fall prey to a scam – read on to learn 5 ways to tell if an online high school diploma or GED® is legitimate.
