We will need official transcripts from your high school or GED and any accredited colleges or universities you have attended. Most schools today have online ordering for transcripts, or you can use these Transcript Request Forms. If you need more than two request forms, duplication is permitted. Call the school or college in question before mailing a request form to determine their fee for sending out your transcript. We can also accept secure email transcripts sent to

You will be admitted into the program after Catawba College receives your completed application form and all of the transcripts from high school (or GED) and any colleges listed. The Registrar will evaluate transcripts to determine the courses that will transfer here from other colleges.

Once you have been accepted, you will be contacted by an academic advisor in the School of Evening and Graduate Studies to review which courses you need to complete the degree and to arrange your schedule from the selection of courses being offered in the upcoming sequence of blocks.

Registration Procedures
Students who need to be  "full-time" to meet financial aid requirements MUST register for four courses at the beginning of each semester in order to gain the 12 hours necessary for full-time status.
