Applicants must provide one set of official final undergraduate and graduate (where applicable) academic records/transcripts, with the degree posted, to the Rackham Graduate School. Official documents must be provided from the institution awarding the degree.
- The Rackham Graduate School requires that you submit official academic records/transcripts from each institution where you have earned or will earn a Bachelor’s, Master's, Professional, and/or Doctoral degree. Instructions for submitting your records/transcripts to the graduate school are provided below.
The Department of Communication and Media also requires that all applicants upload to your online application a second set of official or unofficial academic records/transcripts from each institution where you have earned or will earn a Bachelor’s, Master's, Professional, and/or Doctoral degree. If you are unable to 1) submit to the Rackham Graduate School and 2) upload a second set of your official or unofficial records/transcripts to your online application, please contact the graduate program coordinator at email@example.com for further instructions.
Uploading your official or unofficial documents to the online application is *not the same* as submitting official transcripts electronically. You must follow Rackham's procedure for submitting e-transcripts from your degree granting institution.
It is your responsibility to request the timely release of any such records/transcripts from your degree granting institutions. Our deadline for application is December 1st (postmarked). We understand that it can take several days for your documents to be received in and processed by the Rackham Graduate School - most transcripts postmarked by December 1st will be updated in your friend account by December 10th.

If you are sending transcripts to the graduate school as part of a larger packet, the documents must arrive sealed in the original envelope in which they were sent to you. Opened transcripts cannot be accepted as official.
Remember, you must submit to the graduate school your records/transcripts from each institution where you have earned or will earn a Bachelor’s, Master's, Professional, and/or Doctoral degree to the Rackham Graduate School.
