Can my high school submit information online?
Gettysburg accepts online submission of transcripts, secondary school reports, counselor recommendations and teacher recommendations through the Common Application online. We consider these official documents; there is no need to follow up with paper copies.
Please Note: Gettysburg College will be unable to accommodate auditing students for the Fall 2020 semester. A decision for the Spring 2021 semester will be made at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience.
