WSC highly recommends using Spantran for evaluation. For high school documents you only need to order a General Analysis evaluation. If you have attended college in another country, please see Step 6.

ACT or SAT scores must be no older than 5 years and International Admissions Checklist Accuplacer scores may be no older than 3 years at time of admission.
