How to Submit
For completed, incomplete, and in-progress study, provide the National Centre for Recognition and Equivalence of Diplomas (CNRED) with the original documents for verification. Then provide the verified original document to the regional perfect’s office for apostille and send this verified original document to U of I Graduate Admissions.

If the awarding institution does not provide mailing options to the US, provide the Transcript Request and Release Authorization Form to your institution. Request the institution to fill out the form and place the form with your documents in an official envelope sealed by the appropriate office and give the sealed envelope to you. You can then mail this to the Graduate Admissions Office. Do not open the envelope or break the official seal.
Credentials are acceptable only when they are issued by, and received from, authorized personnel. Credentials attested by persons outside the authorized office, such as individual professors or external notary publics, will not be accepted.
Precise, word-for-word, English translations are required for all foreign language documents.
The University of Idaho recommends, and reserves the right to require, a professional credential evaluation by an outside, independent party.
