Admissions

Transcripts

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.

U.S. or Canadian Transcripts

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 above). Academic records from U.S. or Canadian schools must be received in a sealed envelope directly from the issuing institution.

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.

Official Electronic Transcripts Sent by the Institution

If your institution has the capability of sending official transcripts electronically, the institution can send them directly to admissions@uiowa.edu. Note: Do not send unofficial transcripts to this email account.

Transcripts from non-U.S. schools

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:

  1. Certified by a notary in the originating country (for example, a transcript from a Russian university certified by a Russian notary). There is an exception for Indian candidates (details here). Note that international transcripts certified by a U.S. notary public are not accepted.
  2. Attested copies with the official seal from the issuing institution (certified copies of original yearly mark sheets and your degree certificate).

These records must include:

  • The subjects you studied by year;
  • Number of weekly lecture and laboratory hours in each subject;
  • Grades, marks, or percentages earned in year-end examinations;
  • Proof that the degree was conferred. I.E., diplomas, titles, degrees, or certificates awarded.

More information: see international applicants.

Translations

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.

Submitting Digital Transcripts/Proof of Degree

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:

  • The subjects you studied by year, with grades, marks, or percentages;
  • Number of weekly lecture and laboratory hours in each subject;
  • Grades, marks, or percentages earned in year-end examinations;
  • Proof that the degree was conferred. I.E., diplomas, titles, degrees, or certificates awarded.

If you are offered admission, the offer will be contingent upon receipt and verification of official transcripts.

Especially for Indian Applicants

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.
