If you have attended a college or university located outside of the United States, you will need to request all schools attended to send the official academic records
directly to the University of Idaho. This may take some time, so please start this early in your application process.
If you have attended a school in a country that does not issue transcripts/academic records to other schools but gives the original certificate or mark sheet directly to the student, you will need to make a photocopy of your original certificate or mark sheets and have the school you attended certify or attest that the photocopy is a true copy of your original document.
U.S. embassies and consulates are often good resources for the attestation of educational documents as well. If you are in the United States, you may bring the original document(s) to our office for review and verification. All attested copies need to be verified against the original once you are on campus. If your official transcript is in a language other than English, you will need to have it translated before we can determine if you meet our admission requirements.

- All documents are subject to verification by University of Idaho.
- All documents received by University of Idaho become the property of University of Idaho and will not be released to the applicant.
- University of Idaho evaluates credentials earned through formal academic training only. Applicants should NOT submit documentation of short-term professional development courses or other non-formal, non-academic training with their application; as such documents will not be evaluated or reflected in the University of Idaho evaluation report.
- If applicable, applicants must submit proof of name change. (Clear, legible photocopy of marriage certificate, for example.)
- Some academic institutions can take several weeks to provide transcripts so applicants may want to request their transcript at the earliest possible
- An Application and Application Fee is valid for a specific degree, major, and semester. Any change in degree, major or semester before enrollment requires a new application.
- Graduate Admissions will not disclose to an applicant reasons for denial. Graduate Admissions will encourage the student to contact the department directly and inquire how they might improve their application for future admissions. (The Department can choose to disclose or not.)
