Step 1: Application
Step 2: High School Transcript
Ask your high school to forward an official transcript to the Welcome Center. If you have a GED or HiSET, request that a reporting institution sends a copy directly to the Welcome Center.
Step 3: ACT/SAT or Accuplacer Score
The ACT scores on your official high school transcripts are acceptable, as are SAT scores. You can request your report from the American College Testing Program. You are not required to submit testing scores, however, you will be placed into Learning Support coursework.
