Transfer Credits to Citizens Online High School

What are the benefits of transferring previously earned credits to our high school diploma programs?

  • At Citizens Online High School we may accept 75% to 100% of credits that you have previously earned. This can reduce both your overall costs and the time it takes to graduate.
  • You will not have to take the same courses again if they can be applied towards your diploma with Citizens Online High School.
  • You can earn your high school diploma quicker than if you simply enrolled in one of our programs from the start. Even if only a portion of your earned credits will transfer over, why put yourself through an entire program when you can cut your time in half towards earning a diploma.

A Simple Credits Transfer Process

When you decide to enroll in a high school diploma program at Citizens Online High School, you will find out that the credits transfer process is very easy. As you can see from the steps outlined below for both schools and homeschooling, there are not any hoops to jump through in order for you to have your transcript or portfolio reviewed by our academic team. Citizens also accepts transfer credits from a GED. You can enroll in courses while we wait on your transcript.

Steps to Transfer Credit for High School Courses from another school

1. Enroll in Citizens Online High School
2. BEGIN CLASSES by choosing courses you know you still have left to complete.
3. Request an official transcript of your credits earned from your previous school or school district.

Student Services will evaluate the transcript and award transfer credit for what has been completed.
*Up to 75% of the program credit requirement*

TIPS: Most public schools do not keep copies of every student; they are submitted to the local school district to keep record and distribute as requested by former students. If your school no longer exists or is not able to provide a transcript, please contact the school board. Many school districts have an online ordering system for quick distribution.
