High School Transcript

All applicants must turn in a high school transcript. A high school transcript (or GED) is needed to determine: proof of graduation; whether you have completed the high school preparation requirements; and whether you have met all of the prerequisites for admission to your college of choice.

Exception: students who have previously completed an A.A. degree or bachelor's degree do not need to submit a high school transcript.

GED

Students who have earned or will earn a GED should upload their scores via their Application Tracker. Click the "GED Scores" to access the upload site.

ACT or SAT Score

If your Application Tracker indicates you are missing an ACT/SAT score, it is because of one of the following reasons:

  • If you have graduated from high school and completed less than a full year (26 transferable semester credits) of college coursework,
  • If you are applying to the Dental Hygiene program, an ACT or SAT exam score is required before we can evaluate your application for admission.

Please contact the appropriate testing agency to have your scores sent to our office:

TOEFL, IELTS, or MELAB Scores

These tests are English proficiency exams for students for whom English is not their native language.

If Application Tracker indicates that “Official English Proficiency Score” is missing, please have your score from one of the these tests sent to us by the testing agency
