Graduating from an accredited program: Students graduating from a state-accredited or regionally-accredited high school program in the United States, should submit high school transcripts and ACT or SAT scores. Information about a school's accreditation level is often listed on the high school transcript, or may be available from the high school counseling office or school district office. Approved regional accrediting bodies are:
- Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Higher Education
- New England Association of Schools and Colleges Commission on Higher Education
- North Central Association of Colleges and Schools Commission of Higher Education
- Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCC)
- Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC)
- Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges
- Western Association of Schools and College Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities
Students submitting 15+ college level credits instead of a high school transcript should generally have a cumulative GPA of 2.5+ on their college work. Remedial/non-college level and technical courses do not count toward the 15 credit level.
If 24 or more semester credits (36 quarter hours) have been earned by the application deadline, no ACT, SAT, or secondary test will be required. These applicants should apply as Transfer students with more than 24 credit hours (36 quarter hours) earned.
