*We highly encourage students with international credentials to have their transcripts evaluated by WES.

Only transcripts and test scores should be submitted independently by the applicant's previous academic institution(s) and testing agency. Official transcripts must be mailed or submitted electronically once you have received your offer of admission.

Unofficial transcripts are required from every institution you have earned credits and grades, including both degree and non-degree coursework. This allows the admissions committee to have a more complete picture of your academic preparation for graduate study.

You can upload an unofficial transcript in 1 of 2 ways:

  • Request an official paper transcript be mailed to yourself.  Open the transcript, scan and upload to Georgetown Univ Application Portal (we realize that by opening the transcript it is now deemed unofficial.  This is ok).
  • If your school has the ability to send official electronic transcripts, you can request that an official electronic transcript be emailed to yourself. Open the transcript and save as a PDF.  Upload to Georgetown Univ Application Portal (we realize that by you opening the electronic transcript it is now deemed unofficial.  This is ok).

Do not send electronic or paper copies of your official transcripts to Georgetown Univ before receiving an offer of admission.

Versions of unofficial transcripts that we do NOT accept are:

  • We do not accept screenshots or photos
  • We do not accept downloads of the “student’s view” from your institution’s website

NOTE: Applicants who are offered admission will be required at that time to submit official transcripts for verification prior to enrolling. 

For transcripts not in English: These documents must be accompanied by an English language version provided by the academic institution. If your institution does not provide English language copies, applicants are responsible for providing a certified or notarized translation along with a copy of the original transcripts. Applicants may upload an evaluation from a credential evaluation service. This must include course and grade information. If not included in the evaluation, the transcript from the institution must be included as well. Both the evaluation and original transcript should be submitted in the application as one document.
