FOR ALL RE-APPLY candidates: contact the Office of Admissions at and inquire to see which of the following required documents we may have on file from your previous application:

  1. Proof of High School Completion
    Proof includes: final high school transcript with graduation date, diploma, GED certificate, or college transcript that shows you have completed a degree program.
  2. Proof of Immunizations
    Proof includes documentation of two inoculation dates for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella and two inoculation dates for Varicella or a verified date that you had the Chicken Pox. (Varicella is not required for anyone born before 1980). These records can be ordered from your pediatrician or your current doctor’s office. There will be a “Proof of Immunization” document in your application portal that you can give to your doctor’s office. You may also request a “titer” test. A “titer” test is a lab test that shows your immunity levels. Talk with your doctor’s office or a local medical lab to request this option.
  3. College Transcript
    Official transcripts are required to transfer your college credit. Request the transcript from the institution where you earned the credit.

You are welcome to begin your application without submitting these items, but you will not be admitted until these items have been uploaded to your application portal.
