I have just received the high school diploma from nation high school and went straight to my local community college to enroll in classes. I have been turned away because their accreditation is not approved by the us board of education. I want my $300 back today!

Major scam!!!

Students seeking high school diploma online prior to self learning bewear of a school called Nation High School located in Charlotte, NC, U.S.A with a telephone number 1-888-727-8505.They just scamed me with 254 dollars. The diploma they issued to me is not been recognised by the U.S Board of Education. When I went to my Community College to register, I was embarassed to find out that, they are fake. When the college make an attempt contacting them, none of them answer the phone. These guys are freaky bloody liars. Their school isn't under the accrediting agencies called DETC or CHEA. I knew this when it was too late.I blame the U.S government for allowing a business corporation like this operating in the country. It's really a shame too me. We all value America(U.S.A) like paradise on earth and above all, the best country in the world. Why then do they allow people faking schools around the country to dupped or scam people around the world without tracking down this guys. My fear is that if something is not yet been done, these people will scam millions of people around the world especailly strangers like me who just visit U.S.

Effort should be done by the U.S government to track down this people before they scam millions of people around the world or people who just visit U.S. This also will help to repair U.S reputation concerning online school and above all, make U.S.A a place to be or visit. They should punish them when they are been caught.

I found out that my daughter in-laws "on-line" diploma was from Nation High Sch0ol While trying to help with her enroll in a university we discovered that ANY high schools diploma status is only as good as the accreditation that backs it. On Nations site they list three accreditation institutes...International Online Education Accrediting Board, Organizations for Online Learning Accreditation and their newest...DEAB-Distance Education Accrediting Body. These are not "fake" institutions, however they are fraud and are not listed by the Department of Education with "Reliable Authority" status. They are not listed on any of the 6 agencies that verify HS accreditation either. See for yourself if Nation HS's diplomas hold any weight with a university, community college or large employer. Here's what to do: Call ANY university enrolment or admission’s department, ask to talk to the Home School specialist. Tell them you have (or are thinking about getting) a HS diploma from Nation High School (not National High School). They will tell you one of two things: 1) We do not accept Nation High School diplomas because their accreditation is not of a "reliable authority" status. or 2) we don't know who Nation High School is. In this case you will then have to call Nation High School (and talk to a CS agent in India) who will assure you that this is no big deal and offer to send the university their accreditation status. This will be done and the university will respond back and say "Nations accreditation are not valid or recognized by the USDE. We can't accept this as a diploma". Or something close to this. You can check the same lists yourself at http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/Search.aspx?6d6f64653d31267264743d312f31312f3230313120343a32343a353120504d Remember that ANYONE can create an accreditation institute, but just like businesses are rated by BBB, accreditation institutions are verified by USDE. For more validity to the fraudulent nature of Nation High School, simply read over their site and notice the grammar, spelling and punctuation errors. Is this an organization you want writing your diploma? You will also notice that there is an entire site dedicated to Nation High School-Not a Scam called www.nationhighschoolscam.com Just read over the site and the testimonials (which seem to be written by the same person). Observe the tone of the site and content. It has the same feel of the writer of Nation's site. "Me thinks thou complainst too much" If you already have a diploma from Nation and try for a refund, you’re not likely to get it without legal action, which will be cost prohibitive...sorry. They will tell you "we have provided 50, 000 diplomas to satisfied customers" Ask them how many of those 50k went on to University, Graduate School, Community College or to work for a career path business like Wal-Mart, Boeing, or the Government (who verify HS diplomas) using a Nation HS diploma! Above all USE YOUR COMMEN SENSE! If something sounds too good to be true, then in probably is! There is NO free lunch. If you want a legitimate HS Diploma, your going to have to work just as hard to get it as if you were still in HS! Yes, Nation HS is fraud in every sense of the word!

Buyer beware is still applicable in this country. Unfortunately, this type of scam goes after the desperate, the vulnerable, need I say, the less educated.

I paid the money and took the "test" yesterday and then received a phone call telling me that I passed and that my "diploma" was on its way. Then this morning I get another phone call from an affiliate asking me for my billing info after the payment was debited from my account. i told the guy that I wasnt giving him any info because my card was already charged and he said "oh, well thats fine. Bye!!" then hung up. The whole thing was to sketchy for me so I called them back and asked for my money back, it then took me 3 more calls to get the number to the "front office", then 3 more calls and 15 minutes of holding to finally get some one. He gave me a whole run around about having to report it first, then he said for me to get a refund I would have to be denied of something I didnt really understand his BS but it was easily recognizable as a lie. He kept it up for about 5 minutes until I reminded him that I am a 27 year old man not teenager, have been a paralegal for 5 years, and whos parents are attorneys. I told him that if I had to call back it would be with my attorney on the line, in which time he promptly cut me off and said that it was done, and the money was to be refunded and hung up. I have a GED and have had some college, and the only reason I am trying to get my high school diploma is so that I can join the military, it is sad that there are companies like this out there that put forth such an effort to deceive others who are trying to better themselves. I recommend doing alot of research before investing your money, and time in web based programs that you are not sure about. I recorded all of the calls about the refund so if you would like to know what you might have to deal with I would be more then happy to forward the recordings to you. Email me at stewart_57@hotmail.com and I will get them out to you at my earliest convenience. Good Luck!

I also got a Diploma from Nation Nigh School Online and I checked into two different colleges and found that they DID NOT accept a diploma from them...so I was furious as all of you but my only difference is I called the two colleges within a 5-10 min time frame of Nation High School saying I passed and like I said the two DID NOT accept anything from them so after hearing that from them two colleges I then called the 1-800 number provided on the Nation High School website and after a few run arounds I DID NOT GIVE UP and I kept calling back after them transferring me to someone else and getting a voicemail damnit I didnt want to leave a voicemail for someone to supposedly call me back so I just kept on and on and on until finally I spoke with someone and they said ok we will fully refund your money and you are no longer a graduate from Nation High School and they said when you receive your diploma in the mail please just throw it in the trash I said FINE BY ME NO PROBLEM and within 4 days I DID receive my money back on my credit card and later on like 2 weeks or so I receieved my diploma and I threw it away as they said and I got my money back on my credit card so I was happy with it (i got my money back) and as far as them as individuals I kind of had a feeling it was a scam after talking to them on the phone but IM JUST GLAD I GOT MY MONEY BACK and as of now Im attending G.E.D classes!!! GOOD LUCK to EVERYONE!!! Something should and needs to be done about this.

Hi, Upon conducting a review Nation High School on behalf of A-DOE... Nation High School is a scam! Ahsan - Department of Education may provide assistance to Nation High School graduates. This decision for the scam alert is only based on level of of Evaluation Bureau of Investigation. We are still in the process of evaluating their courses to make a decision weather or not A-DOE can provide graduates of Nation High School assistant with college admissions or to allow them to transfer their earned credits to AHSAN AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL.

AHSAN AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL is established by A-DOE to assist students graduate with dignity. Accreditation by non-profit agencies is really bogus. They get funded by investors to write their paychecks and just for paperwork perform 1 site visit in 4 years. That is why A-DOE is different. A-DOE monitors accredited institutions students daily progress to ensure their performance. We are trying to influence colleges throughout the world use A-DOE transcript for evaluating students admission. Currently there are many under graduates in 4 year program who feels they are not capable of the work so they go back to 2 year college. Such a waste of time, and money.

Contact A-DOE at: doe@ahsan.us

sorry, I forgot to mention the links!


For AHSAN American High School (AAHS)
the website is currently under construction and we are trying to work in 2 projects. We have to move the A-DOE and establish AAHS on this new server .us domain. So sorry for the trouble. But you may still e-mail our staff at

doe@ahsan.us to see what they can assist you with your complaints with National High School.

Have a nice day! Please ask DOE before you guys enroll in any online/distance education program on the internet. Best way to make sure the site legitimacy is via the look of the website. If the website is awesome, and really shiny then it is 20% scam. Real and legit schools websites are decent and don't try to make their presence as shiny as scam programs.

My cousin was interested in that school and so I did a little research. I actually took the test they give and input answers the i KNOW was incorrect and it said i pass! It happened that my cousin went through with it and got a diploma from then with a fake transcript which states that he took calculus 2. Seriously I don't see how this sham of a school can ever be accepted anywhere.

haha that is why look for an accredited school. I am sorry, it is accredited.
Look for an accredited school that holds value, and is accredited by an accrediting agency that holds value and professionalism. You wasted your time if you did your research after reading my above posts.
