Have a question you can't find the answer to? Let us know.
To consider you for admission, we need documentation of your grades and proof that your degree was conferred. Most U.S. schools include the degree conferred on the transcript.
Request official copies of academic transcripts from all colleges, universities, technical institutes, or professional institutions attended to be sent to the Office of Admissions (address below).
Current or former University of Iowa students need not request University of Iowa or other transcripts previously submitted to the University. Credentials submitted for admission become the property of the University and are not returnable or transferable.
Academic records from U.S. or Canadian schools must be received in a sealed envelope directly from the issuing institution.
Send U.S. or Canadian transcripts to:
If your institution has the capability of sending official transcripts electronically, the institution can send them directly to admissions [at] uiowa [dot] edu. Note: Do not send unofficial transcripts to this email account.
Academic records from non-U.S. or Canadian schools must bear the original stamp or seal and signature of a school officer (e.g., registrar or dean) and be sent to the Office of Admissions from each institution attended.
Copies of transcripts must meet one of the two below criteria:
These records must include:
More information: see international applicants.
Send non-U.S. transcripts to:
Documents not in English must be accompanied by official English translations certified by the issuing institution. Photocopies without this certification will not be considered official.
For international candidates only, we are able to review your application using unofficial, digitally duplicated copies of your transcript submitted online.
These records must be legible and include:
If you are offered admission, the offer will be contingent upon receipt and verification of official transcripts. Your official transcripts must match the unofficial copies of the transcripts that were provided for use during the admissions review process in order for the offer of admission to be validated.
The term "transcript" is defined differently in India than other countries. To clarify, we need your yearly marks sheets as well as an attested copy of the degree certificate. It's easiest if you can send this information at the same time you apply, but if you can only get a cumulative list of courses with grades, that will suffice for the first stage of the application, but you must notify us ahead of time that you intend to submit only that portion of the documentation. If you are admitted, we will require the marks sheets as described above in order for your admission to be finalized.
We can accept digital/unofficial copies for your initial application review; read details in the section above this one titled Submitting Digital Transcripts.
We cannot accept notarized copies of your yearly marks sheets or degree certificate. They must be attested by the University.
We cannot accept a transcript prepared and attested by an affiliate institution. The marks sheet can be prepared by the affiliate, but should be attested by the University, not the affiliate institution. Questions about Indian marks sheets/transcripts can be directed to International Admissions.
