Official Transcript Requirements for Admission

A transcript is official if it is sent directly from the school of origin to the Office of Admissions and Records at this University and bears the official seal of the school of origin and the signature of the Records Custodian.

A transcript hand-carried by the applicant from the institution of origin in an envelope sealed by the issuing institution may be accepted as official. A transcript bearing a college seal is not official unless it meets the above guidelines.

Official transcripts are required from all institutions attended, including extension and correspondence courses, even if withdrawal occurred prior to the completion of the course(s). The University reserves the right to determine whether a transcript will be accepted as official.

An applicant disregarding this regulation is subject to disciplinary action and will have the application for admission cancelled.

Schools and colleges will send transcripts only upon the request of the student. The responsibility for ensuring that official transcripts reach the Office of Admissions and Records rests with the applicant.

When ordering transcripts, the request should be addressed to the Office of Admissions and Records at the particular institution. Most institutions require a fee for sending transcripts.

All transcripts submitted become the property of this University. Students are required to have their own personal set of transcripts from all institutions attended for advisement. The Office of Admissions and Records will not provide copies.

Students admitted on a provisional basis must submit required final official transcripts by the established deadlines. See Provisional Admission.
