Lincoln is one of many online high schools that issues a high school diploma based on easy online (un-procotored) testing. The problem is that Lincoln like many other fake, unaccredited high schools, lacks accreditation from a US Department of Education Agency or a Recognized accreditor. This presents problems for the students when trying to get into college or gain employment with their diploma.

Don’t be left out to the Dogs. Do your homework when choosing an online high school. With all of the diploma mills operating online, employers and colleges alike, now default to Government recognized accreditation through a Regional agency or the DETC, or State Public High School or GED testing centers.

It is important for students to choose a school that has recognized accreditation.

Here is the list of Valid Accrediting Agencies as Recognized by CHEA and the US Department of Education.
