New LSC students are required to submit documentation of high school completion or its equivalent. For most students this means their official high school transcript is issued to LSC after graduation OR their General Education Development (GED)/Certificate of High School Equivalency (CHSE)/High School Equivalency Program (HSEP) score report. A high school diploma cannot be used as an alternative to the high school transcript or GED/CHSE/HSEP score report.
Note: Students are also required to submit official transcripts from all colleges or universities previously attended. Students who submit a college transcript with 1 or more successfully completed college level course will have their high school transcript requirement waived. For more information, see Transfer to LSC.
High School Graduates (US and territories) & GED/CHSE/HSEP Holders
Students should contact the high school they graduated from to request their transcript be sent electronically. Students who graduated from a public high school in Texas should request their high school send their official transcript through the Texas Records Exchange (TREx) system. This is the fastest way to satisfy the high school transcript requirement. Official PDF's for out-of-state GED/CHSE/HSEP score reports must be sent directly from the state department of education to LSC via email.
