Self-paced online degree? (web or film)

Transferring 90+ credits to UMPI doesn't waive the high school diploma requirement unless you already have a degree. This is a U of M system requirement so unless they have changed it in the last few months, the only way around it is to transfer with a degree. The Pierpont BOG AAS does that.

I don't think I am going to be able to call the old school and ask them for anything. If I did call them, I would end up telling them how 35 years ago which teachers laughed in my face, threw my assignments in the trashcan, told me I had no chance to pass tests, mocked me publicly, asked me what was wrong with me, asked me why I was even in school, and accused me of cheating when I studied for a test. I would tell them I've been able to do well financially despite their efforts, that they can go XXXX themselves, and the only thing that got me through the 80s were the hopes and dreams of a nuclear apocalypse. I looked in to invalidating a HS diploma, and earning a GED, but that is apparently now allowed. I would rather erase any record I went there, than ask them for proof of it.  All I ever wanted was to have a regular life, with a college degree as Step 1.  You get a degree, a job, get married, have kids, and grow old. Instead, it's been one long battle from Day 0.  Well, I don't think this is going to work.

Get the Pierpont BOG AAS degree before applying to UMPI. I don't know if Pierpont requires a high school diploma.

Technically, I think they say they do. But, IIRC, there have been a couple of students here who were able to get the Pierpont degree without one. If you're of a certain age, I think they might not ask. Since the application is free, it'd still be worth applying to see if the AAS can be obtained. Nancy Parks is super helpful to everyone in the BOG AAS program.

I sent my HS and college transcripts, so I will see how it goes. I wouldn't blame them if they decline. I can sound crazy on the phone. Thanks for all the help.

Good luck! Let us know if you need any help filling out the requirements for UMPI or Pierpont! Smile

If you list out exactly what classes you've already taken, including grades, we'll have a good idea of what's still left to do for both schools.
