Highschool Transcripts / SAT or ACT Scores

If you have been out of high school for less than one year, and have completed fewer than 24 college credits, your high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores are also required. We will compare your scores using concordance tables to determine your highest scores on either test. Sending your scores each time you take the SAT allows Ferrum College to consider you all available enrollment-related opportunities.  

If you have been out of high school for more than one year, and have completed fewer than 24 college credits, your final high school transcript is required.
