    6. In addition to the forms, call your high school to send a copy of your transcript in a sealed envelope to Johnson County Community College.

All foreign high school transcripts must be evaluated by Educational Credential Evaluators, Inc. (ECE). The Kansas State Board of Cosmetology will not accept evaluations from any other company.
