    5. Select “Continue”
    6. Complete all fields and follow all instructions.

    • For electronic transcripts, check with your university to ensure they accept PDF documents.
    • All transcripts will say “Undergraduate Transcript.” Graduate classes are designated by a course level 600 and above. If needed, we can provide a letter stating you were enrolled as a graduate student.
