List of Necessary Documents for Schools

Transcript/Official Grade Report

A transcript is an official copy of a student's academic record detailing the courses the student has taken and each grade received. As an important document requested by schools in order to process applications, applicants must submit their transcripts in English.

Applicants should allow their schools adequate time (2 to 3 weeks) to issue English translations of their individual grade report. If an applicant’s school cannot issue English translations of their transcripts, the applicant must have the original grade report in their possession, write English translations, have their school sign the translated version and submit all original paperwork to the school that the applicant is applying to in order to continue with the application process.

A number of schools have different requirements in order to receive applicants’ original transcripts. Some schools require the original transcripts be sent in sealed envelopes from the prior school directly. Applicants will receive specific instructions from their school’s program concerning the correct submission of their transcripts. It is necessary that applicants follow their school’s specific instructions carefully and thoroughly in order to be admitted into the program.
