Electronic transcripts are considered "official" when we receive them from a secure site formally linked to the sending institution or testing service. Electronic transcripts are only accepted from US institutions.
Academic records received in any other condition, such as transcripts that arrive in an unsealed envelope, or that are emailed or uploaded by the student, or that are printed from the university portal, are not considered “official.”
