Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic we are allowing students to submit unofficial transcripts to complete their application file for review. The unofficial transcripts should come through as a PDF. You will be required to submit official documents before enrolling in your coursework in September.

As an alternative to mailing your transcripts, you're also welcome to send them electronically through a secured source to admissions@salemstate.edu.

If Your College has Closed

Salem State University is committed to helping you complete your bachelor’s degree. Admissions and transfer services counselors are available to help you with your transition to Salem State University. Due to your university closure, you may be exempt from completing Salem State’s General Education requirement. This is dependent of the academic work you have already completed. Salem State University can also transfer in up to 90 credits.  

This is consistent with our mission to serve the students of the Commonwealth, and consistent with the academic benefits we already extended to our sister institutions in the Massachusetts public system of higher education. 

If you should need assistance securing your transcript from your closed university please reach out to admissions@salemstate.edu so we can best assist you with that process.
