Send in your high school and college transcripts

After you complete your application, request that your final official high school transcript showing your graduation date (if you have less than 24 hours of college credit) and official transcripts of any college coursework from any college you attended be sent directly to the Office of Admissions via electronic exchange or direct mail.

If you have less than 24 completed credits at the time of your application, have your ACT or SAT scores sent to the Office of Admissions.

Your application will be evaluated once all official transcripts are received. If you are applying for a future term, your application will be evaluated once we have your grades through the same term of the prior year (if you’re applying for the fall term, we will need your final grades from the fall term of the previous academic year).
