Submit Documents

Submit Documents

You'll need to submit the following supporting materials.

You can send the documents separately, but we won't be able to make an admissions decision until we've received everything.

Official Transcripts

If you’ve earned fewer than 24 college-level credits, have your high school send us your official high school transcript. We’ll need original documents. If your transcript is not in English, provide a notarized translation of it.

If you didn't complete high school, but took the GED or HiSet instead, submit an official copy of your test results to show you passed.

However, if you’ve earned 24 or more college-level credits, you don’t need to submit your high school transcript, GED, or HiSet test results. Send us your college transcripts.

    High School Transcript, GED, or HiSet

    Your official transcript needs to arrive at our Undergraduate Admissions Office unopened and have:

    • Your date of graduation
    • School's official signature
    • Seal affixed to the envelope

    College Transcripts

    We’ll need an official college transcript from each institution you’ve attended. Transcripts must be from regionally accredited colleges and universities. If your college transcript is not in English, provide a notarized translation of it.

    Have your college’s Registrar’s Office send original documents, in a sealed envelope, to our Undergraduate Admissions Office.

    We also accept electronic transcripts through secure sites such as:

    Where to Send Transcripts
