​Graduate Admission Transcript Requirement

By the end of their first semester of study, all graduate students must submit an official transcript which must bear the appropriate signatures and seal of the institution that issued it, and must be received by Syracuse University in a sealed envelope directly from that institution. Unsealed documents which may have been in the hands of students are not considered official.

After completion of the first semester of graduate study, the Graduate School may prohibit further registration for any student who has not met this requirement. The hold on registration will only be released when this requirement has been met.

Acceptable documentation of degree(s) earned prior to matriculation in their graduate program at Syracuse University can be obtained by contacting the Registrar’s Office of each higher educational institution that you attended and have one copy of your transcript(s) sent to:
