Uploading a transcript
While completing your online application and prior to submitting it, you will be required to upload one copy of your scanned official transcript from each institution from which you have earned or will earn an undergraduate or graduate degree. Do not send transcripts for community college attendance or from any institution where you enrolled in classes but did not earn a degree.
Please do not mail your official transcripts to us until you have received an offer of admission from Virginia Tech (see below).
Please note that non-legible scans will not be accepted. Make sure your scanned documents are legible before uploading, as non-legible documents will result in processing delays.
You may scan a copy of your official paper or electronic transcript provided to you from your institution's Registrar. Do not upload your institution's web-based academic record or a document stating it is not an official transcript. Make sure that all critical and identifying marks have been scanned and are legible. These include the institution's name, your name, the names of your courses, and the grades you have received. It is important that you scan both the front and back of your transcript as we will need to be able to review the information provided on the back of your transcript concerning credit hours, the institution's grading scale, etc. Please ensure that your file is in Word (.doc) or PDF format.
If you encounter issues with uploading your transcripts in your online application please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The process of uploading transcripts is intended to eliminate the need to mail in your transcripts, as our departments will be able to review your application based on your uploaded transcripts. If you are offered admission, you will be required to provide an official copy of your transcript(s) upon the awarding of your degree and its posting to your transcript prior to your enrollment at Virginia Tech.
Commonwealth Campus and Non-Degree Applicants
Commonwealth campus and non-degree applicants must submit a copy of their official transcript or diploma showing bachelor's degree awarded with their application for admission.
