Colleges which don't require you to mail them official transcripts?
I'm an international student. I studied one semester in the U.S. last fall and then came back home. I want to go back for Jan 2018 as a transfer. The thing is, schools keep asking for transcripts, high school and college ones. I could give them, but not the official ones, and only soft copy versions. Sending my college transcripts costs $$$ and it's not like I can take the chance, just apply to one school and pay for that. Additionally, I only have one official high school transcript which I can't just send away.
Then there are SAT scores which costs like $12 or something? I don't know about you guys, but I'm not living in Oslo or something. The currency exchange rate for my country to USD is almost 20x.
Does anyone know schools, preferably $15K and less per semester tuition, where you have experience applying to without ever having to pay, whether application fee wise or sending transcripts. I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.
