Application Checklist

Once the ONLINE APPLICATION (STEP 1) and non-refundable application fee (if applicable) have been submitted (www.cahe.edu/apply), applicants should submit the documents below. Applicants who are required to take all or part of the Entrance Exam (STEP 2) will be scheduled to do so. Applicants who possess an associate’s degree or higher, or those who are exempt from all sections are not required to take the Math and English portions of the exam. All documents listed below should be submitted prior to the scheduled interview date (STEP 3).

OFFICIAL HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS OR COPY OF HSED/GED/TASC

Per regulation, all applicants must provide the finalized official copy of their high school transcripts or a copy of the high school equivalency diploma/GED if this is the highest level of education completed. Individuals who previously attended an online high school or who were homeschooled should contact the Admissions Department to determine eligibility.

Applicants who attended high school in a foreign country as their highest level of education completed should complete an evaluation (Please refer to “Evaluation Agency List” for a list of acceptable foreign transcript evaluation agencies). Applicants who possess a degree are not required to submit a high school transcript or HSED/GED

OFFICIAL COLLEGE TRANSCRIPTS (if applicable)

Applicants should provide an official transcript for the last post-secondary institution attended/completed. Official transcripts should be signed and sealed by the previous institution attended and mailed to the Admissions Department. Alternatively, an official eTranscript can be submitted electronically directly from the school.

Applicants who attended a foreign institution will be required to submit a course-by-course evaluation (Please refer to “Evaluation Agency List” for a list of acceptable foreign transcript evaluation agencies).

While unofficial transcripts or SAT/ACT scores are not required for admission, submitting these documents while official transcripts are pending will help to expedite the admissions process and determine whether an applicant who does not have a degree is exempt from taking all or part of the Entrance Exam (STEP 2)
