Verification of High School Completion

Under Higher Education Act regulations (effective July 1, 2011), institutions are required to develop and follow procedures for evaluation of the validity of a student’s high school completion if the institution or the Department of Education has reason to believe that the high school diploma is not valid or was not obtained from an entity approved to provide secondary education (§ 668.16(p)). 

NACAC has developed a policy brief outlining the regulations pertaining to the verification of high school completion requirements.
