Application for High School Equivalency Diploma - Alternative 1 - Step 3

This page is step 3 of the applying for a high school diploma, which allows a user to confirm the student’s legal name prior to the student being awarded with that credential.

The value in this is that the legal name will be printed on the resulting credential and this allows a user to confirm that the name we will use is the one the student would like on there. This is important to reduce the number of requests coming back to Student Records to have a different name printed on the credential.
