Transcripts and related documents are considered official only when they bear the original signature of a school official and original school seal. Accepted school officials include the Registrar, Principal, Controller of Examinations, or the Ministry of Education. Photocopies, scans, or faxes are not considered official.
Graduate students must submit their official transcripts in the original language AND should include a Certified translation if NOT in English. Detailed course descriptions from foreign colleges/universities must also be sent in English.
Graduate students who have attended post-secondary educational international institutions/colleges/universities outside the U.S, are required to submit, in addition to the original transcripts, a professional credential evaluation of all work completed (or a course-by-course with GPA report) through an organization that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education such as NACES or AICE.
