Completing your File
Believe it or not, you aren’t quite done with the Office of Admissions yet (we know, we know.) In addition to state requirements, there are a variety of other documents that you must submit to the Office of Admissions before we can officially close out your application file.
Review the list below and request that any applicable to you are sent to the Office of Admissions as soon as possible. In some cases, you may not be able to stay enrolled if we don’t receive them.
CANDIDATE INFORMATION AND DEPOSIT FORM and MCDANIEL HONOR CODE
Login to your personal McDaniel Admission Page to confirm that you've submitted both of these required enrollment forms. (Be sure to login with your McDaniel Admissions Account credentials (the personal email address and password you used throughout the admission process).
FINAL OFFICIAL HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT(S)
You are required to submit final official transcripts for any coursework that occurred in the 2020-2021 academic year. If you are a high school student, that includes a final high school transcript that shows proof of high school graduation.
OFFICIAL COLLEGE TRANSCRIPT(S)
Did you take any college courses? An official transcript from each college/university attended (including if you were taking courses as part of a dual enrollment program) must be submitted.
OFFICIAL AP/IB TEST SCORES
Did you complete AP/IB exams? Regardless of the score you received, you are required to submit official scores to the Office of Admissions. McDaniel College will accept spring 2020 AP and IB exams in the new format this year for credit. AP scores of 4 or 5 and IB scores of 4 or higher will be reviewed and considered for credit. Students should have their official scores sent to the Office of the Registrar to be considered for credit.
OFFICIAL SAT/ACT TEST SCORES
McDaniel College is proudly test-optional, which means you may have been admitted without submitting official SAT/ACT test scores. However, we require all enrolled students who took the SAT or ACT to submit official scores for the purposes of enrollment and institutional reporting.
RELEASE OF STUDENT INFORMATION FORM
As a college student, your McDaniel records (including your academic and financial records) belong to you. This means that McDaniel College staff are legally required to have your written permission before we can disclose details of your academic and financial accounts with others (including parents or guardians). If you would like to authorize us to share your education records with parents or others, you must complete the Release of Student Information Form. To submit the form, complete the following steps:
- Download the Release of Student Information Form.
- Return the completed form to the Registrar’s Office in person, or scan/photograph and email to firstname.lastname@example.org from the student’s McDaniel email account.
