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 9, on the Tempe campus.

Community college or university transcripts from the United States

An official domestic 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

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 your transcripts directly to ASU, you may send official transcripts, 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.

All international transcripts must be submitted in the original language accompanied by an official English translation. Translations must be literal, complete versions of the originals and must be translated by a university, government official or official translation service. You may not complete your own translation. Please have the translation service mail the official translation to ASU. Translations may be emailed to transcripts@asu.edu by the translation service.  

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.
