Be aware, admitted students have until the end of their first semester enrolled at JHU to submit their official transcript with degree conferral. Admitted students are required to submit final, official transcripts (with English translation if applicable) from only those institutions where a degree was conferred; however, the Office of Engineering Graduate Admissions and the Office of Graduate Academic Affairs can request official copies of any transcript at any time for audit/verification purposes, including transcripts from institutions where a degree was not received.

How to Send Your Official Transcript(s)

Contact your institution to have official transcripts sent to the Office of Engineering Graduate Admissions directly from your university, or a third-party (WES) on behalf of the university, showing degree conferral. We are not able to accept documents sent from an admitted student as official transcripts. We prefer digital transcripts emailed to [email protected], sent through a third-party service, university service, or directly from a university’s Registrar. 

We are not currently accepting documents in person due to COVID-19 safety restrictions and limited access to campus. If your institution does not have an option for digital transcripts, you can mail signed and sealed official documents to the Engineering Graduate Admissions Office. If you are mailing a sealed copy you have previously received from your university, place the sealed university envelope in a second envelope before addressing and mailing to Graduate Admissions.

Certified Translations

The Office of Engineering Graduate Admissions requires literal, certified translations for all documents issued in a language other than English.

All translations submitted with your application must be literal (not an interpretation or a paraphrasing) and complete versions of the original records. Plain translations, notarized translations, and/or translations done by someone other than a certified translator are not acceptable. Evaluations performed by agencies such as WES will not be used in place of certified translations. All translations should be on a translator’s letterhead.

If translations are not officially provided by your university, the Whiting School will accept translations from the following:

Course Credit Transfer

If a student requests permission to apply course credit(s) completed at a previous institution to a Whiting Engineering graduate degree, a copy of the official transcript from any relevant academic institution must be provided directly to the student’s academic advisor and department for consideration. If the course(s) was completed at an institution where a degree was conferred, a copy may be secured from the Office of Graduate Admissions. If the course(s) was not completed at an institution where a previous degree was conferred, the student will be required to submit an official transcript from the relevant institutions as applicable directly to the student’s advisor/department.

The Office of Engineering Graduate Admissions and the Office of Graduate Academic Affairs can request official copies of any transcript at any time for audit/verification purposes, including transcripts from institutions where a degree was not received.
