Submit Transcripts

Send final official transcripts of all high school work, as well as a final college transcript reflecting dual enrollment credit (if applicable), through the spring term so that it is received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions before your scheduled summer orientation session. If we do not receive your final high school transcript(s) by August 1, we will not have confirmation that you met admissions requirements and, as a result, your offer will be rescinded and you will be unable to attend. Attendance at summer orientation and registration for fall courses does not exempt you from this requirement.

If you are an international student living abroad and your transcripts cannot be sent in time to arrive by the deadline, you may bring your sealed official transcripts with you when you arrive on campus in August without penalty. Please bring your transcripts to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions located at the Visitor & Undergraduate Admissions Center as soon as you check in.

In order to receive credit through Advanced Placement (AP) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) program, you must have your AP or IB examination scores sent electronically, by the appropriate testing service, to:

Office of the University Registrar
