I was employed in my company with a high school degree and I have served as a PM in several large projects. I just completed my bachelors degree about a year ago and I want to obtain a PMP. Can I use the newly-obtained bachelors degree? Or should I use my high school degree?

Use your bachelor's degree because your PMP requirements for "project management experience" are significantly easier to reach.

Please see page 6 of the PMP handbook:

And congrats on obtaining your bachelors!
