If you have some college experience, but will not be transferring at least 24 credits from an accredited college or university to Franklin, please provide us with both your high school and college transcripts.
To maximize your potential for transfer credit, be sure to send us the official, sealed transcripts from all of the colleges or universities where you have registered for courses. Most colleges and universities have an Office of the Registrar or Office of Records, which is the department responsible for maintaining student transcripts, record, and enrollment status. Contact your previous school's registrar's office to request that your official transcript be sent directly to us.
High School Transcripts
When acquiring your high school transcript, please note that many high schools are closed or short-staffed over the summer, so it may be more difficult to get your transcripts during that time period. For that reason, we recommend that you set aside additional time to obtain your transcripts. Please be aware that some high schools may not be able to process transcript requests in June or July.
You can expect to spend $3 to $10 for your high school transcript. Please allow 7-10 days for your transcript to arrive at Franklin. There is no cost for us to receive and evaluate your transcript.
Franklin accepts electronic transcripts from other institutions and from third-party transcript providers. In both cases, electronic transcripts must be emailed from the provider directly to Franklin University. Electronic transcripts sent from the applicant will not be accepted as official.
Your official transcripts can also be sent through the mail directly from the provider to:
ATTN: Office of Transfer and Articulation
201 S. Grant Ave.
Columbus, OH 43215-5339
Note: If your transcripts are from post-secondary institutions located outside the U.S., please submit them to an approved third-party transcript evaluation agency. Once the agency has completed the evaluation of your transcripts, have your official evaluation submitted to the Office of Transfer and Articulation. Your transcript evaluation also must include a course-by-course evaluation, including a GPA calculation.
