Please submit as a PDF attachment. Emails simply containing links to shared files will not be accepted.
Step 4: Send College Transcripts
Students must submit all college transcripts from any previously attended institutions (address above). Official transcripts should be sent directly from the college or university that awarded your bachelor’s degree to be considered official. Transcripts from any additional coursework since that time should also be submitted, including postbaccalaureate or graduate-level transcripts.
Undergraduate students may be accepted with unofficial transcripts by emailing copies to OnlineVerification@HBU.edu; however, you must submit the official transcripts in a sealed envelope from the school or through an approved electronic service by your second semester.
Step 5: Submit Additional Documents (Graduate Only)
Review any additional program-specific admission requirements and submit the required documents.
