Submit your transcript(s). If you have earned college-level credits, you must submit a college transcript from each institution attended as well.
All transcripts must be issued by the school, in the original language; English translations are also required if the official transcript is not in English.
Translations must be word-for-word, in the same format as the original, and typed on the school letterhead stationery, or on business stationery signed by a translator attesting to familiarity with the foreign language. Please note that we do not accept credential evaluations from third-party services.
Official transcripts are required for admission purposes. Any transfer credit completed in the United States must be sent to OSU directly from the institution attended.

considered official if they are submitted to our office in ONE of the following formats:
- The transcript is submitted in an envelope that is sealed and stamped by your school or the Department of Education in your home country. Official transcripts can be mailed directly from your institution or hand-delivered in a sealed envelope prior to enrollment at OSU. See examples of properly sealed envelopes for official transcripts.
- The transcript is sent to our office electronically at firstname.lastname@example.org from your school or school representative via their official email account or transcript e-service.
- The transcript is sent to our office electronically at email@example.com from your embassy or home government.
