Placement Test Scores
Placement scores are required for admissions; however, scores are used for program placement only and are not used in determining admission to the college except when academic achievement levels are required by a licensure board (such as the Practical Nursing Program). Transfer students may submit official transcripts from a college or university accredited by one of the six regional accrediting agencies as a substitution for the entrance exam. The transcript must contain sufficient information for placement (English and Math courses), otherwise it will be necessary to take the entrance/placement exam.

Fletcher accepts two types of placement test scores - ACT and/or COMPASS. ACT scores should be within 3 years of the expected date of enrollment. An applicant who needs to send ACT scores to Fletcher can do so through ACT's website: www.act.org. Fletcher's school code is 5033. COMPASS scores should be within 2 years of the expected date of enrollment.

If you do not have ACT or COMPASS scores, please visit Fletcher's Testing Center for more information.

Official College Transcripts (For Transfer Students Only)
Prior to the start of the planned semester, applicants must submit a complete and official transcript from EACH higher education institution attended even if credit was not or the credits appear on another school's transcript.  The transcript may be sent to Student Services from the issuing institution, or it may be hand delivered by the applicant in a sealed envelope from the insitution.

Any student who obtained a GED must submit an official GED transcript.

*Transfer applicants who have not completed at least an associate's degree must provide a final high school transcript (if applying for an associate's degree program).  However, those applying to the Practical Nursing or Emergency Medical Technician Basic programs are required to submit an official high school transcript even if they have earned a degree at any level.
