High School Transcript Requirement
As of the 2012-2013 school year, the U.S. Department of Education released new standards regarding students who receive financial aid and are admitted to colleges/universities that have an admissions requirement for official high school transcripts or proof of GED.
Students with 30 transferable credit hours may be offered admittance with MSU Denver. However, these students will still need to submit an official high school transcript or GED score to qualify for financial aid. Therefore, even though a student may have enough transfer credits to be admitted, they may not have enough transfer credits to receive financial aid.
Students who are admitted to MSU Denver AND wish to receive financial aid MUST submit one of the following:
> an official high school transcript
> a proof of GED
> an Associate's Degree
> a minimum of 60 transfer credits applied and documented with the Office of Admissions
The difference between Admission's criteria and the criteria of the Office of Financial and Scholarships.
A student may fulfill the high school transcript requirement for Admissions with the following:
|at least 30 transferable hours from previous college transcripts.||ADMISSIONS|
|a copy of their official high school transcript or GED score.||ADMISSIONS|
A student may satisfy the high school transcript requirement to receive Financial Aid with the following:
|an Associate’s degree.||FINANCIAL AID|
|at least 60 transfer credit hours.||FINANCIAL AID|
|an official high school transcript or GED score.||FINANCIAL AID|
If you are not able to submit official high school transcript or transfer at least 60 credits, you can learn more about GED testing through the Colorado Department of Education website or contact the state GED administrator:
