*Validity of High School Diplomas: Regulation 34 CFR 668.16 (p) requires Title IV schools to establish policies and procedures to confirm the authenticity of high school diplomas in the event that the school or the secretary of the Department of Education as reason to question the validity of a student’s high school diploma. Mandalyn Academy may require further documentation in the form of a certified copy of final high school transcripts for the high school in question or information from a company that translates and evaluates foreign diplomas. They may also contact the Department of Education in the state in which the diploma was issued to determine if the school listed on the diploma is on the state list of recognized schools. Student self-certification is not considered sufficient proof of validity. Mandalyn Academy makes every reasonable effort to verify the validity of questionable high school diplomas.
