Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

This is a simple tool object which enables users to upgrade adult sims who didn't graduate college to be college grduates. Sims can get more want slots, college diplomas, jobs for college graduates, and also you can change major for sims who already graduated from college.

Category and Price
General/Misc. $0


Counterfeit College Diploma: Be a college graduate and get a diploma.
Add Want Slots: Add want slots.
Change My Bachelor's Degree: Change major (for sims who already graduated)
Clear My Degree: Remove college graduation record. (UI will revert)

How to Use

1. Buy the diploma item from general category.
2. Counterfeit diploma.
3. Add want slots.


0. Oops! I am so sorry, I uploaded at "Global Mods" section by mistake. This is not a global mod. So sorry again.

1. You can set GPA using the popup dialogs.
2. You can get diplomas for each major, if you "change" major several times.

But if you want to have a different set of diplomas (like you want to have two diplomas, one for art and the other one for science ), you have to take the given diploma out of the sim's inventory once, and then you can change major again.

Otherwise, all diplomas will be set accoring to the major when they were taken out of the inventory. (like you have two science diplomas, not the art one and science one together)

3. College graduation memory will be supported.


1. File size has been reduced.
2. Hopefully pre ep2 check will work more correctly.
3. "Clear My Degree" menu added.
4. "Counterfeit College Diploma" menu will not appear to college graduates.

gerbilgal - There are no executable files in the attached file here. Just a single .package file within a folder.

I was hoping to avoid sending 4 sets of twins to college..but not wanting them to cry about not going to college. This seems my solution, thanks.

Thank you for this! I don't like to send all my sims to college, I get bored with it if I do, but it will be nice to be able to have the want slots without cheating.... sort of.
