“Students interested in pursuing post-secondary education within their state should check with the state to understand the requirements. States may impose requirements for receiving state financial aid. For example, an online high school diploma may not be recognized by some colleges and universities within a state to receive financial aid. We recommend students check with a specific institution for any specific restrictions—this is particularly important for residents of New York and New Jersey.”
