Transcripts

Submitting Official Documents

Graduate and certificate applicants must submit an official, original document in the native language of each transcript/mark sheet and diploma/degree certificate from each university or college attended. If the native language for the documents is not English, then certified, exact, and literal English translations are required. The English translation may come from your university or may be completed by a certified translator.

Original documents are strongly preferred, however, if you cannot send originals, we can accept the WES ICAP evaluation. We cannot accept the WES evaluation report or any other evaluations from other credential services.

Your transcript/mark sheet and diploma/degree certificate with English translations if required should be assembled by you and sent to the address below in one package. If you would like your transcript/mark sheet and diploma/degree certificate returned to you, you must provide a return shipping label and return packaging in the package that you send. You must also include this checklist, filled out, in the package that you send containing your documents.

For applicants that DO NOT NEED ANY OF THEIR DOCUMENTS RETURNED, use the following instructions:

All academic credentials sent using these instructions become property of the university. They will not be returned to you or forwarded to a third party. Credentials of applicants who do not enroll will be destroyed.

Request official original transcripts from every school that you reported on the UF Graduate Application and have them sent to one of the following addresses as appropriate.
