All students enrolling at John Carroll must have a final high school transcript on file. This transcript must include complete senior year grades and must show the date of high school graduation.

Many high schools will automatically send your final high school transcript, but it is your ultimate responsibility as the student to ensure that it is sent and received. Failure to submit a final high school transcript could prevent you from registering for coursework at John Carroll.

While we prefer to receive this final transcript uploaded by school officials through the Common Application, we can also accept it in any of the following ways:

  • Faxed by the school to 216.397.4981.
  • Emailed as an attachment directly from the school (from a school-issued email address) to
  • Mailed to: Office of Admission John Carroll University 1 John Carroll Blvd. University Heights, OH 44118

Final high school transcripts should be submitted to John Carroll by July 1, 2023.

If you have taken AP tests and/or IB exams and/or enrolled in college-level courses during high school, please make sure any and all applicable exam scores and/or OFFICIAL college transcripts are sent as soon as possible to the Office of Admission for official credit evaluation. Visit our course credit page for more information

On Tuesday, July 11, starting at 10:00 am, you'll be able to purchase parking permits. Residential student permits cost $300, while commuter permits cost $250. Permits are valid for the entirety of the 2023-2024 academic year. To purchase a parking permit, please log in to your JCU Gateway Portal. Parking is very limited this year due to new construction on campus, so it is best to reserve your permit early to avoid missing out. Freshman and Sophomore resident students will park at off-site lots located at Notre Dame College or at the Green Road Jewish Family Center.  Students will receive an email in August with information regarding permit distribution.
