Transcripts From Outside the U.S.


Official Academic Credentials of all post-secondary course work must be received according to the Country Specific directions on the Graduate Admissions Office website. All credentials written in any language other than English must be accompanied by English translations certified as accurate by the institution.

This may take some time, so please start this early in your application process.

The University of Idaho Graduate Admissions Office offers a complementary transcript evaluation service. The time involved in the evaluation is dependent on many factors and varies from file to file.

If you would like to expedite the processing of your application, you may submit a professional credential evaluation by an outside, independent party. The list of professional credential evaluation services from which the University of Idaho will accept evaluations can be found here.

Important Notes: 
  • 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 anyone or any institution--not even 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 an Application Fee are 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.)
