What is considered an official proof of degree/transcript?

Last Updated: Jan 18, 2019 08:23AM EST
Proof of Degree must meet the following criteria to be considered official:
 
  • Degrees from institutions outside of the US are often separate documents from the transcripts
  • The document must have either “Degree Awarded” or “Degree Conferred” and the date of award or conferral stated on it
  • The document must also state what type of degree you have earned (Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Technology, etc.)
  • Full, complete transcripts, do not count as proof of degree
  • Provisional Degree Certificates are acceptable forms of proof of degree
  • Documents that state you have passed the “Degree Examination” do not count as proof of degree
  • Documents must be translated into English
  • Documents cannot be submitted electronically, unless they come directly from the institution

Full, Complete Transcripts must meet the following criteria to be considered official:
 
  • Full, complete transcripts often show 8 semesters of grades
  • Documents must be translated into English
  • WES reports are not required
  • If a transcript does not show 8 semesters of grades, please indicate on the document at the time of submission if the program was a non-degree/transfer program, or a 3 year program instead of 4 year
  • Documents cannot be submitted electronically, unless they come directly from the institution
  • Transcripts from institutions inside the US often have the “Degree Awarded” or “Degree Conferral” and date on the transcript – this document counts as both an official transcript and official proof of degree

If you have the original copy of your proof of degree and/or transcript, please submit it in person to 130 Snell Engineering. Please note we are unable to return any documents that you submit. Therefore, if you need to keep the original copies of your documents, please make photocopies of them. Bring both the original and copies to 130 Snell Engineering; we will verify the copies and keep that version.
