Submit Transcripts

FIU requires all incoming students, whether first year or transfer students, to submit all official academic transcripts from every high school or college/university attended prior to submitting their application. Applications will not be reviewed until they are complete. Your transcript(s) should be sent directly from all secondary schools, colleges, and universities you have attended.

Transcripts received by FIU become the property of FIU and will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to any other institution. Please do not send us your original transcript/diploma if no other copy exists.

Effective September 1, 2022 for Transfer applicants: If your post-secondary educational history includes coursework outside the United States, you must submit a course-by-course credential translation and evaluation, with grade point average (GPA) calculation included, for all non-U.S. coursework. FIU accepts evalutions/translations from any NACES member evaluation service.

FTIC and graduate applicants with international credentials must submit a certified copy issued by the previous institution’s registration office. Please note that if a translation is also required, it is considered separate from the official transcript requirement (both are necessary).

GED Students

Applicants who earned a GED must present official GED results and official transcripts or any partial high school completion.

Foreign-educated Students

Official courses-by-course evaluation is required from a NACES member credential evaluation service for all international post-secondary (college or university) coursework when applicable. The evaluation must come directly from the evaluation service to FIU and be certified as an official document. FIU only accepts secure transcripts of post-secondary school records and these must be received via official channels of mail or authorized electronic transmission. All credentials and documents submitted to the Office of Admissions become the property of FIU and original documents to the applicant will not be provided.
