I am an international graduate applicant. Can I submit my official transcripts/mark sheets and degree certificates/diplomas after I have received an admissions decision?


During the application process, you may upload PDF copies of your transcripts which we will use to review your application. These transcripts should be scanned copies of the official paper transcript issued to you by the Registrar.

Before uploading, please note the following:

We will not accept copies of unofficial transcripts or screen shots of your grades from your institutions student academic portal. The transcript you upload must be a scanned copy (front and back) of the official transcript issued to you by the school Registrar.

If you are uploading academic credentials from Non-US institutions, please be sure your upload includes:

Transcript/Marksheet in English AND Original Language (if other than English)
Degree Certificate in English AND Original Language (if other than English)

Indian Applicants – Please visit https://ww2.graduate.ucf.edu/CountryRequirements/index.cfm?CountrySelect=IND for detailed information regarding policies regarding individual semester marketsheets and proper attestation (university vs. affiliated college)

Additional information, including specific document requirements, can be found at https://ww2.graduate.ucf.edu/countryrequirements/. Questions may be emailed to gradevals@ucf.edu

If you receive an offer of admission, you will be required to submit an official paper transcript. The official paper transcript will be compared to the document you uploaded. Any alterations or omission of information on the transcripts submitted to The University of Central Florida could be grounds for cancellation of your application and/or the withdrawal of the offer of admission.

Some UCF programs do require an outside Course-by-Course evaluation with GPA calculation while others accept an internal evaluation which our office will complete as part of your application.

To verify whether or not an outside evaluation is required for your specific program:

Visit UCF’s Application Requirements and Deadlines Page: https://graduate.ucf.edu/application-deadlines-and-requirements/
Click on the specific program AND track (if applicable) you are applying to
If an outside evaluation is required, you will see the following statement; “Applicants applying to this program who have attended a college/university outside the United States must provide a course-by-course credential evaluation with GPA calculation. Credential evaluations are accepted from World Education Services (WES) or Josef Silny and Associates, Inc. only.”

We will accept evaluations from either World Education Services, Inc., www.wes.org, or from Josef Silny and Associates, Inc.,www.jsilny.com. These evaluations must be course-by-course evaluated. We also require that you submit official transcripts which include your marks sheet(s) and degree certificate(s).
