Flexible Graduate Certificates in Innovation
Unofficial transcripts may be submitted at the time of application.
One official copy of the transcript of all college work is required from each previously attended institution if you are subsequently offered admission.
Each transcript must be closed with the institution's official seal across the flap. If an institution's policies do not permit sending official transcripts to applicants for use with self-managed applications, the transcripts may be sent directly to the Office of Admissions – Graduate Programs at the below address.
The eSCRIP-SAFE System
Electronic transcripts from eSCRIP-SAFE are acceptable if your institution is listed as a “sender” (not receiver) of transcripts. “Sender” must be selected for the member type. If a school does not utilize eSCRIP, we will accept official transcripts electronically as long as they are sent by the institution directly to our email address:
