Academic preparation and readiness is not determined based on a set GPA score.  We review your academic transcripts to get a sense of your progress and success based on your unique experiences and accomplishments within your programs of study.  

High School Transcripts

Due to COVID-19 related campus closures and official transcript submission delays, we are accepting unofficial transcripts or copies of report cards to make initial admissions decisions.

In order for transcripts to be considered official, they must be mailed directly by your school or institution in a sealed envelope to the Office of Admissions, or sent through a secure electronic transcript delivery service. Transcripts sent as faxes or email attachments are not considered official.

High school transcripts may be waived for transfer applicants who have completed 24 credits of college-level coursework at a regionally accredited college or university with a minimum of 18 academic credits.

College Transcripts

Official college transcripts are required from every college attended. To be considered official, transcripts must be sent directly from the institution. Make sure your college transcripts include any in-progress coursework you are enrolled in.

Materials should be sent to:
