Doane College’s School of Arts and Sciences Eliminates Transcripts from Admission Process

Doane’s School of Arts and Sciences no longer requires high school students to request an official transcript to be sent to the Admission Office as part of the undergraduate application process.

That means Doane’s three-step, online application process is easier and greener. Doane College is the first college or university in Nebraska to take this bold step.

Students’ admittance will be based upon self-reported academic information. As always, students who do not meet general admission requirements will be contacted individually.

For high schools, this means added convenience and efficiency as the bulk of transcripts will not be required as well as the time to verify with families that they were sent.

It’s also environmentally friendly, potentially eliminating the need for thousands of paper high school transcripts.

“This new process benefits everyone, and most importantly, it allows us to spend more time talking to students about their dreams and goals and the value a Doane education can bring to their future,” said Joel Weyand, Vice President of Enrollment Services and Marketing. “

Admitted students will need to submit their final official transcript prior to starting at Doane.

Doane’s application process requires no fees, no essays and now no transcripts. That translates to no waiting for potential students – admission decisions can be made in days.

Doane College is the first private liberal arts and sciences college in Nebraska. Doane has campuses in Crete, Lincoln, Grand Island and Omaha. The college is consistently ranked among the top colleges and universities in the Midwest by Forbes.com, U.S.News & World Report and The Princeton Review. Doane was also recently named by The Chronicle as a “Great College to Work For.”
