Upload Your Final Transcript 

High School Transcripts

Transfer students who, after high school graduation, have completed less than 24 college credits are required to provide their high school transcript(s). Unofficial copies can be uploaded with the application or through the Application Portal. For transfer students who have completed 24 or more credits, submission of a high school transcript is recommended. The admissions committee may request a high school transcript from an applicant who has more than 24 college credits if they do not provide the necessary information on the application regarding entrance subjects completed in high school.

Your high school transcript must include all courses and final grades earned from grade 9 through graduation or leaving. Your transcript should certify any diplomas you have earned. If you were educated outside the U.S., make sure you submit all the required documents.

College Transcripts

A college transcript from each college you attend must include all courses attempted and grades earned each term, through the end of August (spring applicants) or through the end of December (fall applicants).  

Please note the following: 

  • If your college registrar requires an email address to send official college transcripts, use (This email address should be used for transcripts only). 
  • If you are currently enrolled in college, you must list your courses in progress on the application.  
  • If you were educated outside of the U.S., make sure you submit all required documents.  

All enrolling students must work with their college(s) to send final official transcripts, either electronically or by mail to:
