Graduate Application - Official Transcripts

What does it take for us to consider a transcript to be official?  Read on for details for schools both inside and outside the US!

Institutions in the United States
     
To be considered official, transcripts must meet one of the following requirements:

  • Sent directly by mail from the institutions where the academic credit was earned. 
  • Sent directly through an e-transcript vendor by the institutions where the academic credit was earned.
  • Official issued-to-student transcripts that are in envelopes sealed by the issuing institutions where academic credit was earned.

Official transcripts of work completed at Wichita State University (or transferred to Wichita State University) does not need to be sent to the Graduate School.  Our staff will be able to access those transcripts.

Note - we cannot accept transfer work posted on another institution's transcript.  If you transferred coursework from one institution to another and are applying for a degree bound status, you will need to have official transcripts sent from each institution attended.
