- For transcripts sent through a secured transcript service, please select Arizona State University from the vendor’s dropdown list to ensure the transcript is routed to the correct place. If an email address is requested you can route to firstname.lastname@example.org or for graduate applicants to email@example.com. Please note that transcripts sent by students to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com will not be accepted as official. These addresses are only for transcripts received from secured and approved transcript services.
- If you are required to submit a degree certificate along with your transcripts, a scan may be made of the front and back of your certificate and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org for undergraduate applicants or email@example.com for graduate applicants. Please make sure that ASU is in possession of your official, final degree posted transcript prior to submission of your degree certificate. The original certificate does not need to be mailed.
* Note: List is subject to change.
Important: If you email a copy of your degree certificate, please only email the degree certificate. Do not include copies of transcripts. Transcripts will not be accepted as official if sent by you and will delay processing of your degree certificate. The firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com email addresses are for receipt of transcripts from vendors and institutions and copies of degree certificates from students. This inbox does not respond to general questions. Questions should be routed to your admission representative.
High school transcripts from the United States
Official transcripts must be sent directly to Admission Services at ASU from the issuing institution’s records office either by mail or electronically. Domestic high school transcripts delivered by hand will only be accepted if they are sealed in the original envelope provided by the high school. High school transcripts must show courses, grades, GPA and date of graduation. Sealed official high school transcripts can be sent in the mail or dropped off at the Admission Services customer service counter on the first floor in the Student Services Building, window 5, on the Tempe campus.
Community college or university transcripts from the United States
An official college transcript must be in a sealed envelope sent directly from the issuing institution’s records office either by mail or electronically. Transcripts delivered by hand will only be accepted if they are sealed in the original envelope provided by the community college or university.
International transcripts and exam results
Graduate applicants: official, original or authenticated transcripts from every college or university from which you earned a comparable credential to a U.S. bachelor’s degree or higher must be sent to ASU in the original language and accompanied by an English translation (if the original document was not issued in English).
Undergraduate applicants: official, original or authenticated transcripts and exam results from every secondary or higher-secondary school (grades 9-12) and transcripts from any college or university attended must be sent to ASU in the original language and accompanied by an English translation (if the original document was not issued in English).
Request transcripts from each international educational institution you attended and exam boards from which you have official results. Official transcripts must be mailed or sent directly from the issuing institution’s records office electronically, and must include a certified English translation of all documents not issued in English. ASU will accept transcripts sent as email attachments if the email can be verified as coming from an authorized school official at the sending institution.
If your school(s) cannot send them directly to ASU, you may send them yourself, making sure they meet one of the following requirements:
- Original academic credentials issued by the registrar of the institution attended, bearing the original raised or colored seal of the institution and the signature of the institution’s registrar, academic official or recognized international organization.
- Photocopies of academic credentials that have been verified as true copies of the original by a responsible official of the institution attended or by an education representative of the country’s government or embassy. Each page must bear the verifying official’s signature and stamp.
- Photocopies of academic credentials that have been certified by a recognized international educational organization, such as EducationUSA, the U.S. Educational Foundation, AMIDEAST or the Institute for International Education.
- Photocopies of an international high school academic credential that has been verified as official by a recognized US high school.
ASU recommends that you have your international transcripts sent to ASU directly from the issuing institution, utilize a secured transcript service (where available), or obtain an attested copy of the transcript (where possible). Sending your only original copy to ASU should be the last option.
- We recommend students sending documents from abroad use FedEx or DHL in order to obtain a tracking number. If possible, include your ASU student ID number and name written on each page of the transcript(s) you send.
- Any document ASU receives becomes property of ASU and will not be returned to you, unless it is a situation where another copy cannot be obtained.
- Photocopies certified by a notary public are not official and will not be accepted. Scanned copies are also not accepted in lieu of original official academic documents.

International transcript translations
Transcripts and degree certificates not issued in English require submission of an English translation in addition to the original language documents. Translations must be literal, complete versions of the originals and must be translated by one of the following:
The translation does not take the place of submitting official academic records in the original language. The translation is in addition to the official academic record. Translations may not be completed by the student. Translations certified by a notary public are not acceptable.
You may not complete your own translation. Please have the translation service mail the official translation to ASU. Translations may also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by the translation service.
Note: some third party evaluation agencies are also members of American Translators Association and provide both translation and credential evaluation services. If using a third party evaluation agency for translation services, be sure you are requesting a literal translation. A literal translation is an exact translation of the document (including notation of seals, signatures, etc). Credential Evaluation reports will have grade and credit conversions and interpretation of the document and are not literal translations.
