Your educational record is an important part of your application for admission. You’ll need to submit transcripts from all postsecondary educational institutions that you have attended.
As part of your application, please submit unofficial scans of your transcripts, taking care to submit both sides of each one. Don’t send official transcripts until you receive an offer of admission, because they will not be added to your file.
Upon admission, you must submit an official transcript from every university, college, or graduate institution that you have attended.
Official records are defined as original documents issued by the institution and bearing the actual (not photocopied) signature of the registrar and the institutional seal.
Any records issued only once by institutions should be photocopied and certified as official copies, either by school officials or by legal authorities such as embassies or a notary public.
Please do not send the original of an academic record that cannot be replaced.
All records must show:
- The dates of enrollment; courses taken; units of credit; your grades, marks, or ratings in each subject; and, if available, your rank in the total class or group
- The institutional grading scale or other standards of evaluation, including minimum passing and failing marks, and definitions of grades between them (should also be included on or with official records)
If academic records and diplomas are not issued in English by the institution, you must submit both the official record and an authorized English translation.
Chicago Booth reserves the right to review the academic records of all applicants and determine whether the academic credentials presented from a non-US institution qualify for consideration. All degrees must be from an institution recognized by the country’s department or ministry of education.
