- Uploaded unofficial academic credentials are required for each college/university that you attended.
- If your transcripts do not yet reflect a complete degree for a program you are currently in, please upload a copy of your incomplete transcripts to your application. When you have completed your degree please mail your official transcripts.
- Current students enrolled in a Non-Degree or Graduate Program – if you are currently enrolled in a graduate or non-degree program you MUST include this in your Educational History section and upload unofficial transcripts from the courses you have already completed.
