All applicants that have attempted to earn college credit after completing high school or earning a GED should use the Evergreen Transfer Application for Admission. Application fee waivers are available.

Upon receipt of a transfer application and transcripts, an initial review will be made. Applicants projected to transfer-in less than 40 earned quarter credits will be required to submit a high school transcript and ACT or SAT exam scores. The Office of Admission will contact applicants regarding high school transcripts and SAT or ACT scores. Applicants may then choose traditional or test-optional admission. This initial review does not constitute an admission decision. Admission decisions are made once an application is complete with all required documents.
