3.Verification and Confirmation

In recent days, some companies and/or agencies request us to verify and confirm the certificates that our students submitted for matriculation or employment. We are very sorry to tell you that Undergraduate and Graduate Section can NOT disclose any private information about our present or former students to a third party. Even if the student concedes a disclosure, we can NOT change this rule. This is a formal rule and is strictly enforced without exception. Thank you for your understanding.
