Are students able to start mid-year? Students can start at any time. We are continuously enrolling new students, and when students are ready to graduate, we can also graduate them throughout the year. Can students make up credits they are lacking and get back on-track to graduate on time? Yes, students are able to focus on courses to make up credits in order to get back on track to graduate. Students may also graduate early if they are able to meet all the requirements. Will the student earn a GED or High School diploma? All SIATech graduates earn a standard high school diploma. Is bus transportation provided? Yes! We can help you with a bus pass to get to school How do I get a copy of my official school transcript from SIATech?

If you have trouble using the form to request your transcript, email us at email@example.com for assistance. How do I request a new copy of my diploma? We do not provide replacement diplomas. A diploma is not an official record, it is a ceremonial item used in the graduation ceremony. What I can get for you is an official copy of your transcripts. A transcript is a list of the classes you took and states your graduation date. It is the official record. Click here to request a transcript using the Transcript Request Form. In general how does this all work? The student completes the enrollment application and submits it to our office. An administrative representative will call the student for mandatory New Student Orientation. They attend orientation and begin classes as soon as possible. Based on student records that we receive, the student would be placed in courses that are needed to successfully complete their high school diploma. Any state testing that the student needs to complete will be done within the timeline given by California’s Department of Education. As the student completes courses, they are placed in the next course needed. The course program that we utilize is available online for the student to access while they are here in class and while they are home. While in school, they have certified teachers available to assist them with the courses they are enrolled in. As an added feature, the online program we use has a help button that the students can use to get help while they are working from home. (It’s a red HELP button that the student clicks on within the program. Once clicked, a teacher appears who can give them the assistance they need.) once the student has completed all required courses, passed all state tests and has obtained the required 2.0 GPA, they are eligible for a California high school diploma.
