College Transcript(s) Requirement

Submission of all final, official, non-EFSC college transcript(s) indicating the coursework taken and the degree(s) awarded is required. A transcript with courses in progress is not considered a final transcript. Official college transcripts will not be accepted in the Student Document Dropbox in your myEFSC Student Portal

Meet with an academic advisor if you need to use your unofficial transcript as proof of a prerequisite(s) to register for your initial term. Once an official transcript is received and evaluated by EFSC, your coursework will be transferred and you may register online.
