Submitting Final Transcripts

Submit Your Official, Final Transcripts

Within your first semester of enrollment, official, final transcript submission is required for all previously earned degrees, including bachelors and higher, as part of our audit process*. If you plan to request transfer or reduction of credits, official transcripts are also required from the college or university where those credits were earned, regardless of a degree being earned there or not

We recommend you submit these transcripts as soon as possible upon admission. A registration hold will be placed on your student record on the day immediately after??in your first enrolled semester. This hold will prevent any further course registrations and will not allow for your degree to be conferred when you apply to graduate. For details on submission, please see the notice below that applies to you.

Please note all items submitted become university property and will not be returned. If you want to have a set for yourself to keep, we recommend asking your university to give you a second (or attested) copy of these documents.

Below we have outlined the transcript requirements and submission process based on where your degree was earned.?

*While official transcripts for all earned bachelors and/or masters degrees is the formal requirement for the audit process, there are some cases in which we may request alternate documents. If you are unsure whether what you plan to submit will meet the requirements of the audit, please contact our Graduate Admissions Office at??for clarification. It is the students responsibility to ensure that they submit the appropriate documents to complete the audit process.
