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. Please inform the graduate field if your name on any of your credentials will be different from that on your application.
The on-line application requires you to upload an unofficial copy of your official transcript. To prepare your transcript, follow the steps below:
- Redact, cross out, or cover your Social Security Number (SSN) prior to scanning. Please do not upload transcripts that include your SSN.
- 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.
- The on-line application will not allow encrypted or password-protected documents to be uploaded.
If you are unable to submit an unofficial copy of your transcript electronically through the online application, you must send it directly to the field to which you are applying using the mailing addresses provided in the List of Fields.
Admitted students are required to submit an official paper or electronic (e-transcript) transcript directly to the Graduate School prior to enrolling. 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.
