How It Works

Step 1: Complete your application 

Apply conveniently online using your organization’s unique Franklin application link. 

Step 2: Submit your transcripts 

Submitting electronic transcripts is a faster way for Franklin University to receive your official transcript. Check with your previous institution to see if this is an option instead of having a paper copy mailed to us. Electronic transcripts should be emailed to transcripts@franklin.edu.

Please allow 7-10 days for your transcript to arrive at Franklin. There is no cost for us to receive and evaluate your transcript.

If your transcripts are being sent to us by mail, please have them mailed in an official, sealed envelope to this address:

Submit official, sealed transcripts to:
Franklin University
ATTN: Office of Transfer and Articulation
201 S. Grant Ave.
Columbus, OH 43215-5339

Transferring less than 24 hours of college credit? Please submit an official high school transcript.

For master's and doctoral students additional materials are required to be submitted as part of the application process. Please view the Graduate Student's page for additional details

Step 3: Complete your partnership verification

To ensure that you receive your partnership benefits, please complete the Partnership Verification form. You must have your partnership membership or employment verified in order to receive tuition benefits. Details related to tuition benefits and verification are contained within the Partnership Verification form. Franklin withholds the right to audit your employment or membership status with the partner organization at any time. As a student, you are responsible for immediately notifying Franklin of any change in your employment or membership status. Please note that tuition benefits are not retroactive and cannot be applied to prior terms. In addition, tuition discounts may not be combined with other Franklin University scholarships.

Step 4: Speak with an admission advisor

A Franklin admissions advisor will call you to review your application and schedule any necessary placement tests.

Step 5: Register for classes

Once you’ve completed placement testing (if necessary), your admissions advisor will contact you to set up a registration appointment.
