Conditional Enrollment Requirements

  • Official proof of high school graduation or equivalent received and verified by the Registrar’s office by Day 49 of the first term.
  • If proof of high school graduation is not on file by the first day of the term, a completed Transcript Request Form must be submitted by Day 8 of the first term.

Attestation of High School Graduation or Equivalency

Grantham University requires completion of high school or its equivalency for admission into its undergraduate and certificate programs.

If the University is unable to verify successful completion of high school, or its equivalent, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that official proof of high school completion, or its equivalent, is provided prior to the release of federal financial aid in the student’s first term of enrollment. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in immediate dismissal from the University and forfeiture of credits.

Verification of high school graduation, or its equivalent, may be provided in the form of an official transcript or other approved documentation that confirms graduation from high school or its equivalent. Verification documentation that satisfies requirements is approved by the Registrar. Examples of acceptable verification are listed below:

  • Form DD214: Veterans may submit a DD214 that indicates high school graduation (please note that not all DD214 documents contain this information). Form DD214 is usually free for veterans and can be obtained in ten (10) working days or less at the following website:

  • Form DD1966: Service members may submit a DD1966 that indicates high school graduation.

  • Form DA669: Service members may submit a DA669 that indicates high school graduation.

  • Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Applied Science, Bachelor of Arts, or Bachelor of Science degree awarded from any school accredited by an accrediting body recognized by the US Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, or foreign equivalent. Official transcript must be provided to satisfy requirement.
