Final Transcripts
Enrolling students must submit an official record indicating the date of graduation from a secondary school approved by a state or regional accrediting agency or an official GED diploma or  prior to the first day of class. Students who have not submitted final transcripts to the College will not be allowed to register for the second semester. The final documents are considered official and final when received directly from the institution either through postal mail or through an electronic transcript service and they contain a school official signature and graduation/diploma date. The Office of Admission will make contact with the school or agency when they suspect that submitted documents are incorrect or fraudulent.
