All applicants must turn in a high school transcript. The 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.
If you attended or graduated from a secondary school in another country, have your school send to the Office of Admissions your official final secondary school transcript and proof of graduation (i.e. graduation certificate or leaving exam results). All documents not issued in English must be in the original language and include a certified true English translation. (Official documents are those that are original or are attested copies of original academic documents that are mailed in a sealed, stamped envelope directly from the secondary school.)
Submit your ACT or SAT scores (ACT code: 2156, SAT code: 6874) if you indicated on your application that you'd like an ACT/SAT score considered in the review of your application. (An ACT/SAT score is not required for your 2021 application.)
*Applicants to the Carlson School of Management, the Center for Allied Health (Medical Laboratory Sciences), the College of Education and Human Development, Nursing, Dental Hygiene, or Mortuary Science must submit a supplemental application. Please note that some supplemental applications require an additional fee.
