Final Transcripts

A final official paper or certified electronic transcript from each institution where you have earned a degree, indicating receipt of degree received is required to be submitted by September 1 or you will not be eligible to register for classes. NOTE: If you are an incoming student to the Woodrow Wilson School, your final transcripts are due July 1.  You will be notified of any missing final transcripts.

A final official transcript MUST contain the following information:

  • Completion of coursework required for the degree
  • Degree earned and date the degree was conferred (in certain cases we will accept, in addition, the hard copy of the award of diploma)
  • Official stamp, seal, and/or embossed marking from the school
  • Official translation to English if applicable

If you are currently completing a degree and the transcript is not available you should obtain a letter from your school's registrar's office indicating all requirements for the degree are complete. When the final transcript is available it should be sent to us.

Enrollment may be terminated if a student fails to provide an official transcript of degree, study, or other academic work that was presented as part of the admission application.

Official paper final transcripts must arrive in a sealed envelope bearing the institution's stamp or seal and mailed to:
