Please allow sufficient time for official test scores to arrive at the Graduate School--schedule your test dates accordingly. Please refer to the Test Scores section below for more details.

4. Test Scores

Answers to questions about policies and procedures for the GRE and TOEFL/IELTS can be found in the GRE, TOEFL and IELTS FAQ.

5. Transcripts

Answers to many questions about our policies and procedures for academic transcripts can be found in the Academic Transcripts FAQ.

When you apply online, one (1) official academic transcript, mark sheet, or final grades sheet (and English translation, if required) from each institution you attended should be uploaded on one of the “Transcript Upload” pages as part of your online application. If uploaded, you should NOT send official copies of your transcripts to Graduate Enrollment Services at this time. If you are offered admission, you will be requested to provide an official copy. The baccalaureate or equivalent transcript should clearly indicate conferral of your undergraduate degree. If you are currently completing your baccalaureate, you should upload a transcript showing your academic record through your most current year of study. See GSAS Application Page 1 Instructions for more information.

If you are not able to upload a transcript in the online application for an unusual technical reason, then you must send a copy to the Graduate School (see mailing instructions below).

6. Submitting the Application

Most if not all of your application should be submitted online, except for those materials that cannot be included (CDs/DVDs, bound printed material, etc.). Test scores are submitted electronically to the Graduate School by the GRE and TOEFL programs. If you must send supporting materials to the Graduate School, please follow these guidelines:

  • Do not mail the Graduate School a duplicate paper copy of your online application.
  • When possible, all materials should be submitted as part of one package to speed processing.
  • Use your personalized Document Cover Sheet from your online application, found in Step 4: Supplemental Forms.
  • Write the program name and degree for which you are applying on the outside of the mailing envelope.
  • The Graduate School does not accept applications or supporting materials sent by fax or email.
  • All application materials must be received by the deadline date.
