Admission Standards

What are Final Official Transcripts?

If you were admitted tentatively, you will need to provide LCSC with final official transcripts for full admission and to receive financial aid.

  • Ask your high school to send your official transcripts to the LCSC Office of Admission.
  • Track the your admission status (and what you still have to submit) on WarriorWeb.

Please Note:

  • Once full admission is granted, you will be able to register for a second semester.
  • Submit your final high school transcript after you graduate. If you enrolled in any college courses while in high school, those transcripts must be submitted as well.
  • Official transcripts must arrive in a sealed envelope, or in official electronic format from the issuing institution. Photocopies of records are not official.
  • All documents submitted in support of an application become the property of LCSC and cannot be copied, returned or forwarded.

2016 SAT Redesign

As of March 2016, the College Board has launched a redesigned SAT. For more information about the redesign—what they've changed, and why it matters—please visit the College Board website. We applaud the College Board for continuing to publicly discuss their plans, and for explaining what the changes will mean.  

We continue to receive questions from students, parents, counselors, and the public about the new test in relation to the admission process at Lewis-Clark; the answers below should help you a great deal.  Still have questions after that? Let us know, and bookmark this page for a later visit! As we receive your questions, we will update this page from time to time.


Do I need to take the new SAT?

  • Applicants for any 2016 term will not use scores from the new test.  
  • Applicants for 2017 or beyond should take the new test, but can also submit scores from the pre-2016 version, knowing that Lewis-Clark will use scores from either one in a way that ensures equity.  With extensive information from the College Board regarding "concordances" (how scores from one version translate into the other one), we will ensure that neither score is advantaged over the other, even if the numeric scores are slightly different. (To see how your old scores will look compared to the new ones, check out this brand-new tool from the College Board.)

What is new about the test?

  • The redesigned SAT has two 800-point sections instead of three.  Math will still be Math, but components of the Critical Reading section and Writing section will be used to create the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing score.  Also, the essay portion will now become optional, and will not be a factor in the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing section. (To see how your old scores will look compared to the new ones, check out this tool from the College Board.)
