Step 2:  Submit proof of  meningitis vaccination (if needed). 

Step 3:  Submit an official transcript from all colleges / universities attended.  Students who do not have an official transcript including final grades for the current semester will be required to submit a Conditional Registration Contract before being able to register.

In cases where the college transcript does not show exemption, an official high school transcript with SAT, ACT or TAKS test scores is required.  Note:  TSI documentation (scores or exemption) is required for registration purposes; it is not an admission requirement.
