You will need transcripts for any prior college work you have completed. These can be requested from the college. Ask that the transcripts be sent directly to the college where you are applying or request sealed copies to send with the enrollment package. Do not open sealed transcripts, if you do, the college probably won't accept them.
If you took college credit examinations prior to June 1994, you will have to request transcripts from the testing agency. After June 1994, the CG Institute established an electronic link with the testing agencies and those scores will appear on your CG transcript. It is also a good idea to attach copies of your official score report to the enrollment form.
How to submit a SOCCOAST college application
Your application, student agreement and CG official transcript will be sent by the CG Institute to your college.
The benefits of this are that the Institute becomes your liaison with the college and can assist in resolving problems when possible. You should still work directly with your college advisor.
Remember that the education specialists at the Institute work for the Coast Guard and not the college. Therefore, they have YOUR best interest at heart. They will be glad to assist you with your questions. Contact the education specialist who prepared your package if you have any questions.
