Am I required to have experience?

Do I need to provide high school transcripts and placement test results if I have taken college-level classes, or earned a college degree?
Yes. You must document that they meet the minimum entrance requirements even if you have more than the minimum requirements. Providing additional proof of additional education/training records may improve your score.
Do I need to provide official transcripts?

Do I have to re-apply and start the application process over from the beginning to improve my ranking?
No.  Once an applicant has been placed on the ranked pool of eligibles they may attempt to improve their score by doing one of the following:
  1. Add documentation points to the overall score. Refer to the “Protocol for Submitting Documentation Points” information you received after you applied.
