For questions regarding high school accreditation, contact the Office of Admissions.

If you are applying from a private school and we cannot confirm its accreditation status, there are two ways you can help us verify your eligibility:

1. Self-Certification: Your school can submit a self-certification document. This document should confirm that their curriculum meets or exceeds all the relevant state standards.

2. Transcript Statement: If your transcript includes a statement directly from your school principal or counselor confirming that your education met state standards, we can accept that as well.
