So that we can serve you most efficiently, it is recommended that you contact the college or university that granted your bachelor’s degree as soon as possible to request an official transcript to be sent to email@example.com prior to the event – if you have not already done so.
Most schools are able to accommodate this request. If you intend on transferring in previously earned graduate credit, you must also submit transcripts from all schools at which you have registered for classes.
If you are not able to have your transcripts sent to Franklin ahead of time, you may bring an official (sealed) copy of your transcripts with you for evaluation.

Your essay should be typewritten or computer-generated and single-spaced.
