If you are admitted

It is best to submit official transcripts as soon as possible, however, an admissions decision can be made based on the information you reported on your application and unofficial documents when needed. Prior to attending, you will need to submit your official transcripts or GED score (and official test scores if applicable) to complete your file. Enrollment and financial aid can be impacted if you do not submit, so be sure to request them if you didn't already at the time you applied.
