Applicants are required to submit official transcripts/GED scores or official ACT, SAT, or CLT scores. Bryan College accepts CLT scores for acceptance, however CLT scores may not be recognized for state grants or athletic certification. While unofficial copies of certain documents may be used during the admissions process, they are not substitutes for required official documents. Official score reports and final official transcripts must be submitted to the Office of Admissions in order for a student to be granted official acceptance. 

Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis and students are encouraged to apply as early as the spring of their junior year of high school. By applying early, all deadlines which occur throughout the senior year can be easily met. 

Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis and you may be accepted as early as the summer of your senior year.
