FIU requires all incoming students, whether freshman 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.

For international credentials a certified copy issued by the previous institution’s registration office may be submitted. Please note that the translation is 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

Applicants with foreign educational credentials in a language other than English must provide a translation from a recognized translation agency or official translator. The Graduate Admissions Office, as part of the admissions process, evaluates foreign credentials internally at no additional cost to the applicant.

Here are some suggested agencies, however, you may choose outside this list:
