Submit official transcripts from all colleges previously attended. Admission GPAs will be calculated, based on credits and grades from regionally accredited institutions only. Failure to disclose all colleges previously attended could result in denial or dismissal. Additionally, transcripts from institutions outside the United States must be evaluated by an approved foreign credential evaluation company. A list of approved companies is available in the Foreign Transcript Evaluation section.
If 12 credits have not been completed at a regionally accredited college, a high school transcript will be required, and the admission GPA will be calculated, based on high school coursework.
