Official Transcripts and Related Documents
Official transcripts are required to complete your application. For a transcript to be accepted as official, it must be sent directly to CCU by the issuing institution in either a sealed, unopened envelope, or via our web portal HERE. In all cases, the record must be an official copy bearing an original stamp or seal by a school official. If the original transcript is not in English, students should also include a literal translation either certified by the academic institution as being complete and correct; OR sent directly to CCU by the translator or translation service through the web portal found above.
Photocopies, scans, or faxes are not considered official. Transcripts sent to CCU directly from a student are not considered official.
We understand impacts of COVID-19 may make sending transcripts a challenge. Apply NOW and have transcripts sent LATER. We will work with you to get your application materials complete when possible. You are also encouraged to send Letters of Recommendation and Personal Statements to be considered with your application.
