What does final official transcript mean?
We define a final official transcript as a transcript received, by us, directly from the issuing institution that is properly signed/authenticated (whether on paper and still in the envelope or a certified electronic copy).
If this transcript is in support of your baccalaureate degree granting institution, it must indicate the award of the baccalaureate degree (or its foreign equivalent).
If this transcript is in support of an advanced degree program that you have completed at the same or another institution, it must indicate the award of that degree.
If this transcript is in support of work taken in a non-degree program, it must contain all coursework taken.
A final official transcript is only required if you have been offered admission and have accepted that offer. Specific instructions will be sent to incoming students in May.
Please Note: Your final official transcript will be reviewed and compared to any transcript or academic record uploaded in support of your application and may also undergo independent verification.
