b) Transfer students: Request all previously attended colleges to send a final, official copy of college transcripts to the EFSC Admission's Office. These transcripts must be received and evaluated by the application deadline. Please note that EFSC will not evaluate transcripts if courses are still in progress at your previous institution. Additionally, if you are listed as "non-degree seeking" at EFSC, request the Admissions office to indicate your minor as "the program you are applying for" so that transcripts will be evaluated accordingly.
