A complete transcript from each previously attended college and university is required by the Admissions Office and should be sent to them as part of your application. Upon acceptance to KSC these transcripts will be evaluated and credits applied to KSC programs per college policy. KSC students who are considering transferring to another institution may find a transcript helpful as a reference. Once an institution has been chosen, you will need to request an official transcript be sent to that institution’s admissions office.
Transcripts are used by employers to verify degree information and better understand a candidate’s qualifications. In general, employers are not authorized to request a transcript. The job applicant must request a transcript with the option of having it sent directly to the employer, or sent to you to provide to the employer.
Graduate Schools will require an official transcript. Some want them sent directly from the former institution. Others require that they be included in the student’s application package. In the latter case the student should request that the transcript be sent to him/her in a sealed envelope. Include the sealed transcript envelope with the application.
