Transcripts and Test Scores - Freshmen

Check the list of important dates and deadlines for the deadline to submit transcripts.

Electronic transcripts are preferred and result in shorter processing time. Check to see if your high school provides electronic transcripts. To send your official high school transcripts electronically, contact your high school directly or check Parchment to see if you can order online.

Please note, if you have taken any courses at a Community College, you will also need to submit transcripts in order to receive the college credit. Please be sure to check with the college you have attended to see if they provide an electronic transcript.

Please submit your official transcripts from all schools previously attended. Transcripts should be sent directly from the originating institution to the Office of Admissions; transcripts submitted by the student are acceptable if submitted in the original sealed envelope.

Transcripts can be mailed to:

Office of Admissions
