Step 2: Send Us Your Transcript

A complete application requires official transcripts from all postsecondary institutions you attended (colleges, universities, or vocational schools) as well as an official high school transcript or GED/TASC score report (unless you earned an associate degree from an accredited college or university). We accept transcripts electronically or mailed directly to the Office of Admissions.

Step 3: Send Us Your SAT and/or ACT Scores

We accept scores sent from your testing agency or on your official high school transcript. If you have not taken the SAT or ACT, you may be required to do so if you have earned less than 24 hours of transferable credit, or if you are younger than 23.

  • For SAT scores, use code 1051
