COVID-19: How We Are Supporting Prospective Students
We are now accepting transcripts electronically.
- School-issued electronic transcripts: If your school issues official transcripts electronically, please have them send your encrypted transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Unofficial transcripts: We will continue to accept unofficial transcripts if you are unable to submit your official transcripts at this time. Order your unofficial transcripts to be sent to your home, and scan them or take a photo to send to email@example.com. We will still need your official transcripts once you matriculate.
