Determining Validity of High School Completion

Determining Validity of High School Completion

Upon receipt of the high school completion documentation, Financial Aid staff confirms the diploma is valid. If there is reason to believe the diploma is inauthentic or granted by an ineligible post-secondary institution, further review may be necessary.

Typically, validity is determined by confirming the high school's accreditation status with the agency that has jurisdiction over the high school. If unable to validate through the accrediting agency and/or if additional information is needed, the Financial Aid office performs due diligence with actions such as, contacting the high school for additional information, consulting with other post-secondary school leadership located in proximity to the high school in question.
