(CNN) - A state House candidate in Florida is facing questions about her college degree.

Republican Melissa Howard claims to have a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Miami University in Ohio.

But FLA News reported last week that she never got a degree there.

In response, Howard posted a picture of herself with a diploma on Facebook.

However, the university said the diploma in the picture doesn't seem to be accurate.

The school said Howard went there in the early '90s but never graduated, and the Bachelor of Science in Marketing degree doesn't even exist there.

Howard has not responded.
