    I have tried everything, restarted the computer and router, repaired my disk multiple times, I removed login items, I have deleted and recreated the wifi and did multiple things in system preferences, deleted my vpn and another program I downloaded recently and several other things on the Apple forums, the only way I can use internet is through safe mode, which makes doing my work harder because I need to watch videos to complete assignments.
    I am currently downloading the Sierra update through safemode, hopefully that works.
    If it doesn't does anyone know how to fix it?

    You could create a time machine backup, wipe the boot drive, install a fresh version of Sierra, and see if things work.

    Too many possibilities this point to know what "it" is.

    Another thing to try would be a new, clean user account.

    Does network diagnostics fail? If so, where?

    Did all of those and it didn't work.
    Just installed sierra for the first time however and it worked right away.
