Step 1: Submit Application Online

Step 2: Submit Required Academic Documents
The academic documents required will vary based upon your entry level.
- Freshmen – Submit official transcripts from all U.S. and/or international secondary schools attended.

- If you are submitting transcripts from an international secondary school or university that uses a grading system different than the U.S. system, transcript evaluations (including translations if needed) will be required. Transcript evaluations must be completed by one of the following companies: Josef Silny & Associates or World Education Services.
- If you are submitting international secondary school (high school) credentials, you must request document-by-document evaluations with a GPA computation of your record. If you are submitting international post-secondary school (university) credentials, order course-by-course evaluations.
