- Disclosure documents: If you checked yes to a disclosure question on the application, please review the requirements for certified copies of court or other legal documents.
*Applicants applying more than three years after graduation from a CAA-accredited program must submit official undergraduate transcripts reflecting all coursework completed for certification. Internationally educated applicants must submit an original evaluated transcript.
