No financial aid will be awarded until all high school transcripts are received. Students who have graduated from institutions outside the United States must document completion of a nationally recognized secondary school diploma. Contact the Admissions and Records Office at records@vgcc.edu for questions regarding your transcripts.

Students who have an associate degree or higher from an accredited college or university are not required to submit high school transcripts.  An official college or university transcript is required to document the degree earned. Students who plan to use Veteran’s Education benefits, and students who plan to participate in Athletics at the college must submit high school transcripts.

Am I required to submit an official transcript from other colleges and universities that I’ve attended?

You must submit a college transcript if:

  • You desire to have your post-secondary transcript(s) evaluated for possible transfer credit.
  • You plan to use Veteran’s Education benefits. The Veteran’s Administration requires that an official copy of all post-secondary transcripts be on file with the college.
  • You plan to participate in Athletics at VGCC.
