High School/College Verification

Graduation from high school or equivalent education as certified by state departments of education is required for undergraduate admission. Graduation verification documents must be submitted to Admissions. Official verification documents include at least one of the following: 

  • Correspondence from a high school/college administrator. Approved correspondence includes letter, email or final transcript received directly from the institution (copy/fax (portal upload)/email/pdf/sealed envelope)
  • Final high school/college diploma received directly from the institution that shows the date the diploma was awarded (copy/fax (portal upload)/email/pdf/sealed envelope)
  • High school equivalency certificate received directly from the testing site (copy/fax (portal upload)/email (high school only)/pdf/sealed envelope)
  • Secondary school leaving certificate (for students who completed secondary education in a foreign country)

Additional methods of verification of high school completion exist for home-schooled students. It is the student’s responsibility to provide verification of high school completion.

Students do not need to provide high school verification if at least one of the following situations pertains to them:

  • Successful completion of an associate degree program
  • Successful completion of at least 60 semester or trimester credit hours or 72 quarter credit hours that did not result in the awarding of an associate degree, but that is acceptable for full credit toward a bachelor's degree at any institution
  • Enrollment in a bachelor's degree program where at least 60 semester or trimester credit hours or 72 quarter credit hours have been successfully completed, including credit hours transferred into the bachelor's degree program. The student must provide an official college transcript for verification of completed college earned hours.

Without such verification, the student may not be allowed to register for the current semester or continue enrollment and will be in jeopardy of revocation of admission to the university as well as losing all financial aid.

International students should refer to the International section for admissions information.
