Sending Your Transcripts

After you’ve applied to Franklin, request the transcripts from all of your previously attended schools be sent to Franklin for evaluation. The best way to do this is to contact your previous school’s Office of the Registrar or Office of Records and ask specifically for an official, unaltered, sealed transcript to be sent directly to Franklin.

We will evaluate your transcripts for free, however, other institutions (colleges & high schools) may charge a processing fee when you request your transcripts be sent to us. You can expect to pay between $3-$10 per institution.

Assessing Your Transcripts

Upon receipt of all your transcripts, we will assess your credits for transfer eligibility as quickly as possible. You should allow for about 4 weeks to complete this process. Once complete, you will receive an email notifying you that your transcript assessment is complete.
