Graduate Admission Transcript Information

when submitting your university application:

When applying for admission to WOU’s graduate programs, students must provide unofficial transcripts and/or academic records from all non-WOU institutions attended. WOU reserves the right to request official transcripts at any time during the application process.

Students who receive an offer of admission will be required to submit official transcripts from non-WOU institutions as a final verification. Enrollment in courses is contingent upon the receipt and verification of these official documents.

when offered admission to a graduate program:

After receiving an offer of admission, you will be required to submit official copies of your transcripts a for GPA and degree conferral verification. Failure to submit official transcripts will result in the placement of a registration hold that could prevent your registration. Official transcripts should be sent to WOU by mail or official electronic submission directly from each non-WOU college or university where a degree was conferred. The official transcript will be compared to the unofficial documents you provided with your application. If there is a discrepancy between the unofficial and the official transcript(s) or it is determined upon final GPA and degree conferral verification that the minimum admissions requirements were not met, your offer of admission may be rescinded.

If you are currently enrolled in courses but will not complete the degree until a future semester, wait to send an updated transcript until the degree is awarded. After it has been awarded, send an updated transcript and the degree confirmation.
