Request your high school transcripts be sent electronically after completing your first semester of your senior year of high school, or after your final semester of high school if you have already graduated. The quickest and easiest way to have your high school transcripts sent to us is through the Parchment Exchange. The same process applies to GED scores.

Submit SAT/ACT Scores if taken within the last three years. Request your scores be sent to Schoolcraft College (SAT Code 1764, ACT code 2070) or upload scores in your Schoolcraft My Account under supplemental items.
Alternatively, you can take placement tests in the Schoolcraft Testing Center. Testing is offered on a walk-in basis during regular hours. Allow approximately 2-1/2 hours to complete testing. Photo identification is required at the time of testing.
