Student Checklist

  1. Complete a free application for admission.
  2. Request that official transcripts (PDF) from all colleges and universities previously attended be sent to the Admissions Office. Transcripts must be sent regardless of whether credit was earned. Students who are applying for undergraduate education endorsements only who have received a baccalaureate degree from another accredited institution, need only submit the transcript for the institution where they received their teaching degree. Failure to submit all previous transcripts will be considered sufficient cause for denial or cancellation of admission. If you have served in the military, request your military transcripts.
  3. Transfer students who have earned 24 credits or more must certify on their application for admission or through a signed written statement, that they have graduated from an accredited high school.
