Graduate Admissions Transcripts

Official transcript or transcript evaluation documenting your completed or in-progress bachelor's degree are required. Transcripts or transcript evaluation showing any graduate courses taken or degrees held are required as well.

If you earned your degree...

  • at Salem State or took classes here, we will download your transcript for you.
  • at an institution in the United States, contact your registrar's office so they can issue your official transcript.
  • at an institution outside of the United States, have your institution send your official records to one of our approved agencies (CED, WES, NAEG, or ECE) for evaluation. Salem State requires a detailed, course-by-course evaluation.
