You may meet the pre-requisistes based on your transfer work.

Additional measures include the PARCC**, GED**, HISET**, TASC** and Accuplacer*. Please see the Assessment page for more information. You may send your transcripts or test scores to email@example.com or bring them with you when you take the CSI.
