You will probably be able to start college.
- Even if your high school is closed, you will probably receive a high school diploma. Schools and governments will adapt their rules to the emergency.
- In many cases, you do not need a high school diploma to enroll in a college or university. For example, at Simon's Rock College, most of the students do not have high school diplomas.
- After you graduate college, most employers do not care if you have a high school diploma. If you never receive one because of a disaster, you will be fine.
- In some cases, the college or university may be closed at the time you wanted to start your studies. You might have to wait for it to reopen.
What happens depends on the rules of your university. Those rules might not be written yet, but this is what they will probably say.
