    Official secondary school transcripts and/or documentation of completion of a secondary school program are required of all applicants. Transcripts must include at least three years of grades earned, credits earned/attempted, class rank, and cumulative grade point average. When submitting the transcript, it is beneficial for the secondary school to include the grading scale or an explanation of the manner in which grades are assessed.

    If the transcripts are in a language other than English or are from a non-American high school program, the original transcript must be submitted to a credential evaluation service. If the transcripts are in a language other than English, the original transcript must be submitted along with a notarized English translation.

    The cost for credential verification and translation is the responsibility of the applicant.
