What to Do After Applying

STEP 1: Submit your Official Test Scores:

Trevecca is test preferred and accepts either the ACT exam or the SAT exam for any student.

*Students admitted without a test score on file may be required to complete placement testing prior to enrollment.

  • ACT: Request your scores from their website: www.act.org; Trevecca Code: 4016
  • SAT*: Request your scores from their website: www.collegeboard.com; Trevecca Code: 1809

If you have not taken either exam, you can find details, dates, and prices on their websites listed above.

STEP 2: Submit your Official Transcripts:

  • High School/Secondary Education
    • Foreign Credential Evaluation Service*: You may be asked to send your transcripts through a foreign credential evaluation service if you have attended a non-U.S. school for any High School/Secondary equivalent or University institution. All transcripts must be sent in English in order to be evaluated. Trevecca accepts international transcript evaluations from any of the NACES approved organizations.  If you have not yet ordered an evaluation and you need to, we recommend using SpanTran, as they have built a portal for Trevecca applications that is beneficial for students who wish to track the progress of their evaluation:
    • *Please contact your Admissions Counselor before requesting this service as you may need to request a specific evaluation.
  • University/College Transcript*: If you are an International Transfer Student or have attended a non-U.S. University, you may be asked to send your official transcript through a foreign credential evaluation service. All transcripts must be sent in English in order to be evaluated. Please see the recommended organizations above.
