Sending Official Records - Freshmen

Unless otherwise stated in your Admission Contract, the deadline for receipt of official transcripts and test scores by Undergraduate Admission is July 1, 2018.

Note: Please let us know of any names that appear on previous records if they differ from the names you provided on your application form. If we do not receive your official transcripts and test scores by July 15, 2018, a hold will be placed on your record. This will prevent you from enrolling in classes and receiving services from the university.

Sending Transcripts

Through postal mail

Transcripts can be sent to:

UCLA Undergraduate Admission
Attn: Transcripts
1147 Murphy Hall, Box 951436
Los Angeles, CA 90095-1436

Note: Paper documents will only be considered official if they are sent in a sealed school envelope with a stamp or signature on the flap of the envelope.

Electronically *

Electronic transcripts are accepted from the following vendors:

  • Parchment
  • Naviance

  • Credentials, Inc.

We must receive your transcript directly from the transcript vendor. We will not accept transcripts sent through email as official. If your school does not utilize these vendors, you will need to submit official paper copies of your documents.

Students Educated in the U.S.

UCLA needs official transcripts from the following:

  • Your high school of graduation
    The transcript must show your entire high school program from grades 9-12 and graduation date.
  • Previous high schools
    If you took courses at any other U.S. school that do not show up (including grades) on the transcript from your high school of graduation, then we will need transcripts from these schools as well.
  • Colleges or universities
    If you took courses at a college or university, submit official transcripts from those schools even if the work appears on your high school transcript.
    Note: the sooner you send us these transcripts, the more likely university credit will be applied to your record when you enroll at UCLA.
  • Non-U.S. schools
    If you took any courses at institutions outside the U.S., submit official transcripts from those schools, even if this work appears on your high school transcript.

Students Educated Outside the U.S.

UCLA needs official transcripts from the following:

  • Secondary school

    Final official secondary school records (transcripts) must be sent from your school or appropriate authority. These transcripts must verify the marks/grades you reported on your application and confirm secondary school completion or date of graduation.

    If your high school transcript does not contain a graduation date, please submit, in addition to your transcript, a true copy of your graduation certificate or diploma certified by your school.

    Note: If your school does not issue an English version of your transcript, you must submit a copy in its original language as well as a certified English translation.
  • Colleges or universities

    If you took courses at a college or university, submit official transcripts from those schools even if the work appears on your high school transcript.

    Note: the sooner you send us these transcripts, the more likely university credit will be applied to your record when you enroll at UCLA.

  • External exam results
    • GCSE/IGCSE/O-level, AS Level (students on the British system)

      You must request official Certifying Statements of Results from each examining board for all GCSE/IGCSE/O-level and AS Level exams. Certified true copies will not be accepted. Do not mail your original certificates, as they will not be returned.

    • A Levels

      If your Certifying Statement of Results will not be available by July 1, certified true copies of your A-levels that are attested by your school principal and are sealed in your school's official envelope can be used in the interim.

      University Credit for A levels: UCLA grants university credit for GCE, Singapore-Cambridge, and Hong Kong Advanced Level examinations with passing grades. To receive university credit for A-level exams passed, you must submit Certifying Statement of Results directly from the examining board. Credit will not be awarded from certified true copies of your A-level results or from transcripts.

      UCLA does not award university credit for GCSE/IGCSE/O-level/AS-Level exams.

    • International Baccalaureate Exams

      You must request official IB exam results directly from the International Baccalaureate Organization. Exam results transcribed onto your high school transcript will not be considered official.

    • India External Board Exams

      If you indicated on your UC Application that you have completed India Year X and/or India Year XII exams, you must request that your official exam results be sent to our office. Your results must be sent directly from the examining board; or your school may send us certified copies provided they remain in your school’s official envelope and are sealed by your school.

    • Other External Exams

      If you have completed other external exams such as the French Baccalaureate, Abitur, New South Wales Higher Education Certificate, HKDSE, etc., you must request official exam results be sent to our office.
