Identity Verification Processes

When a student applies for admission into the program, traditional documentation will be requested which will assist in verifying the applicant’s identity. Supporting documentation may include high school transcripts, college transcripts, SAT scores, and ACT scores. In addition, applicants to MyWay at UMHB must submit a notarized Statement of Educational Purpose form and, immediately after admission, submit a government-issued photo ID to assist in identity verification throughout the program.

Once a student is accepted into the program, the success coach will conduct an initial web conference with the student in which the student will be asked to show government issued photo identification such as a driver’s license or passport. The success coach will compare the photo of the student on the government issued photo identification to the live image of the student through the web conference and to the photo submitted during the application process to confirm the student’s identity.

See Academic Support Services within this catalog for more information regarding the success coach’s role.
