Choose the semester.

Please refer to the academic calendar for semester start dates.

Step 2 - Send transcripts and test scores

Step 2 - Send transcripts and test scores

Please send your:

  • High school transcript or GED certificate.

  • ACT or SAT scores. SAT scores must be from 2016 or later. If your scores are older, you would need to take the placement test. All ACT test scores are accepted.

  • Official college transcripts, if you’d like to transfer credits. If you have at least 12 college credits with a GPA of 2.0 or higher, you can submit your transcript instead of high school transcript, GED, or ACT/SAT scores. Please note that an official transcript sent directly from your former college/university is required to transfer credits and should not be uploaded to the Online Center. Unofficial transcripts can be uploaded via the Online Center but will not transfer credits.
