Your transcripts are an important part of the application and registration process!

If you graduated from a public high school in Duval County (after June 1989), St. Johns County (after June 1993) or Clay County (after June 1992) county, the College will request an official transcript after we receive your application. If our request is not honored by the high school, students will be notified by mail to request their own official transcript. If you graduated from a public or private high school outside of Duval, St. Johns or Clay counties, please have your high school send an official transcript indicating your graduation date to:
