Transcripts Test Scores Program-Specific Information

Transcripts

A bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States, or proof of equivalent training at a foreign university, is required.

Applicants should scan and upload PDF copies of transcripts from the final undergraduate or graduate institution from which a degree was earned. These copies, considered unofficial transcripts, are sufficient for the application evaluation process. If offered admission, you will be required to provide official transcripts from degree-granting colleges or universities, as requested. All unofficial transcripts must be translated into English before submission. Official Transcripts must include both the facsimile signature of the registrar and the seal of the issuing institution.

Paper transcripts must be in a envelope sealed by the issuing institution and mailed to:
