If a transcript is from a highschool that lacks a CEEB code or seal/signature, the admissions office will investigate to confirm that the school is recognized by the state department of education or home school association. The admissions office may request a copy of the student’s diploma at any point in the admission process for verification. If a diploma is determined invalid, a GED may be required for admission consideration.
