High School Transcript/GED
All applicants must request that an official high school transcript be sent directly to Westchester Community College. Current high school students must submit an official final transcript or copy of the diploma upon graduation. GED recipients must submit an official copy of their GED.
Applicants should contact all prior colleges to request that official transcripts be forwarded directly to the Office of Admissions.
Placement testing is required of all new full-time students. Part-time students who wish to enroll in English and/or mathematics must also take placement testing. Students who have successfully completed college-level English and/or mathematics courses with a grade of “C” (2.0 on 4.0 scale) will be waived from all or part of the placement test. A schedule of placement tests will be mailed to you along with your acceptance letter. Click here to view more information about placement testing.
