Getting into the right classes for graduation is important! Providing transcripts or other records with the enrollment application will allow counselors to create an appropriate class schedule faster.  These records can be uploaded into Final Forms with the other required documents. 

  • Applicants with current records will have to wait 3 days to begin classes after enrollment is finalized. Current records include transcripts, report cards or class schedules that show which high school courses the student has taken or classes in which they are currently enrolled.

  • Applicants without current records will have to wait 5 days to begin classes after enrollment is finalized. This will allow us time to request and receive records so that we can create an appropriate class schedule.
