High School Coursework (Undergraduate Only)

This section only applies to undergraduate applicants.

Use this section to add your high school coursework as it appears on your transcript. 

Notes:

  • College or university courses taken concurrently while in high school must be reported in Transcript Entry for each college or university attended. Remember to visit A-G Matching after completing Transcript Entry.
  • If you are entering only foreign high schools, then you are not required to complete High School Coursework Entry or A-G Matching. This includes applicants who are US citizens and only attended foreign high schools, as well as applicants who only attended foreign high schools but may have taken a US course. 
  • Click here for the Freshman Coursework Entry Guide with more detailed information on entering your coursework.

Add a Grade Level
