Submit Your Transcripts and Documents
From the Graduate Admissions Application platform, upload official transcripts from all post-secondary colleges or universities you have previously attended or are presently attending. The number of identified institutions must match the number of transcripts uploaded. Failure to include all colleges/universities on your application may result in your application not being processed. Please note once submitted, all documents become the property of UTSA and will not be returned.
Applicants must submit unofficial transcripts to complete your Graduate Admissions Application; however, once a decision is rendered, all official documentation will need to be submitted to UTSA and can be sent to email@example.com.
Official Transcripts for Admitted Students
Once a decision is rendered, admitted students must request official transcripts to be sent from their Institution to UTSA. Official transcripts can be received from another institution electronically via SPEEDE, E-Script, National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, and other Electronic (eTranscript) Exchange systems or emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org from the institution. Official transcripts can also be mailed to the address below.
