High School/GED Transcripts

  • If you attended a Kentucky high school, you can request your high school transcript at parchment.com.

  • If you attended a non-Kentucky high school, please contact the high school you graduated from to obtain your transcripts. Transcripts must be delivered to ACTC directly from your high school.  Transcripts can then be emailed to as_admissions@kctcs.edu or mailed to ACTC Welcome Center, 1400 College Drive, Ashland KY 41101.

  • If you obtained your GED, you can request your test scores at ged.com/life_after_ged

College Transcripts

Request all transcripts from previously attended non-KCTCS colleges. Check on the former college website for information on how to send your transcript to ACTC. This includes classes that were taken as dual-credit in high school.  

In order to accommodate prospective students who cannot take a placement test, ACTC will use a cumulative high school GPA for placement through Summer 2022, as long as your high school graduation date is within the past five years. High school GPA placement is based on the unweighted cumulative GPA recorded at the end of the most recent term completed.

If you have not met the high school GPA requirement, or your high school graduation date is greater than five years ago, you may need to submit additional test scores. 

Explore financial aid. Our generous scholarships, grants and loans make a great education even more affordable. Learn more about the different payment options.
