What’s the difference between a career and college pathway diploma?

Answer: New Learning Resources Online offers two diploma tracks: the College Preparatory Diploma Track and the Career Pathway Track. Both of these tracks lead to the same high school diploma. When deciding which high school diploma track to take, you need to look at your goals. Do you want to start a career once you have completed your high school diploma or go to a community college? If so, then the Career Pathway is the track for you: a 2-year Junior college or community college, an Apprenticeship, an industry Based Training or Certification, the military, or the Immediate Entrance into a Career Field.

Do you desire to go to a 4-yera university immediately after completing your high school diploma? The College Preparatory Track meets or exceeds the diploma requirements for credits needed to enter directly into a four-year college or university as set by institutions of higher learning across most states.

Although both New Learning Resources Online diploma tracks will help you exceed the diploma requirements for certain colleges and universities, you as a student will need to also meet college or university GPA, ACT and SAT requirements. The GPA, ACT, and SAT requirements are usually unique to each individual college or university. These requirements are usually available on any college or university website. Also, remember that both 2-year and 4-year post-secondary institutions may require certain high school GPAs and/or certain scores on college proficiency /placement exams (such as the Accuplacer or the Compass Test).
