Applicants must have received—or be on track to receive, prior to matriculation at the Graduate School—a baccalaureate degree from a college or university of recognized standing. Transcripts from each previously-attended college or university are required. For students with foreign credentials, an equivalent international degree is required. Please inform the graduate field if your name on any of your credentials will be different from that on your application.
Requirements for International Credentials
The on-line application requires you to scan and upload an unofficial copy of your official academic records:
- All transcripts, diplomas or academic records must be official documents issued by the college or university and provided in the original language.
- If not issued by the college or university as original documents, they should be notarized, full-sized photocopies.
- A certified English translation must accompany the transcript or diploma if the original language is not English.
- Transcripts should include grades received in each subject each year, the name of the degree program in which the applicant is enrolled, and the dates of attendance.
- Scan or save each transcript (and the English translation, if applicable) as a PDF, TIFF, JPEG or GIF file. Combine multiple pages from the same transcript into one file; the file size should not exceed 10MB.
- Ensure the scanned image is clear and easy to read.
- Admitted students are required to submit an official paper or electronic (e-transcript) transcript directly to the Graduate School prior to enrolling, as well as a certified copy of their diploma or degree certificate. This requirement will appear on the “response to offer of admission” form, the New Student To Do List, and in a series of communications you will receive from the Graduate School after accepting your offer of admission.
