MCC requires that students submit their final high school transcript or GED scores, as well as transcripts from all previous colleges attended. These documents may or may not be required prior to your class registration.

Students should contact their former high school (or Board of Education) and have them send your final high school transcript, with graduation date and final GPA. You can order your high school transcript at parchment.com or your GED transcripts at request.ged.ky.gov.

You will also need to contact any other colleges attended to request your official transcripts be sent to MCC. You'll also need to request a transcript evaluation so your credit may be applied to your account
