High School or HSET or GED Transcripts

If you are planning on transferring in credits from another college or university, please have your official college transcripts sent directly to the Registrar's Office. Hand carried transcripts will not be used to award college credit. You will need to complete the Request for Transcript Evaluation Form to have your credits evaluated for use in your degree.
Use of Unofficial Transcripts
We encourage you to bring copies of your unofficial transcripts with you to your first advising appointment as we may use them as guidelines for Advising and placement.
