An unofficial copy of your transcript(s).
We require transcripts from each undergraduate and graduate institution you attended, including community colleges, summer sessions, and extension programs. While credits from one institution may appear on the transcript of a second institution, unofficial transcripts must be submitted from each institution, regardless of the length of attendance, and whether or not courses were completed.
Official transcripts will be required upon admission to the program. Do not have official transcripts sent until requested. Note: If you are admitted and do not submit official transcripts, you will be unable to register for classes until official transcripts are received. Detailed instructions for submitting official transcripts are on the admissions website.
