After you submit your application on Be a Warrior make sure you get your application materials to us. Follow the steps below to complete your application.   

If you graduated from high school, ask your high school to send your official transcript to the LC State Admissions Office: 500 8th Avenue Lewiston, ID 83501. Transcripts can also be emailed to [email protected].

If you enrolled in any college courses while in high school, those transcripts must be submitted as well.

If you received your GED, official scores need to be sent directly from the GED Testing Service.

Official transcripts must arrive in a sealed envelope or in official electronic format from the issuing institution to be valid. Photocopies of records are not official.

*You can be tentatively admitted off unofficial or working transcripts. Unofficial transcripts may be sent to [email protected] or uploaded to "Supplemental Items & Documents" in your Be A Warrior account. Unofficial college transcripts must include your full name, institution, grade points, credits, and grade point average. Working transcripts indicate you are currently enrolled in classes. After your grades and/or degree are posted, you will need to have official transcripts sent to the Admissions Office. Full admission will be granted once we receive all official transcripts.

You can submit test scores by uploading them to "Supplemental Items & Documents" in your Be a Warrior account. Step by step instructions on how to upload test scores and transcripts are in the video below.
