RE: Graduate Applicant Transcripts
On many departmental, Graduate School and Office of Admission websites, applicants are directed to send copies of their transcripts to both the Office of Admissions and their respective department. However, experience shows that not everyone follows the outlined procedures and in some cases you may find that you have received more than one copy of the applicant's transcript. I ask, due to the extreme volume of transcripts that are received and the staffing issues that all of us are dealing with, that you not make it office policy to automatically forward the second copy to our attention.
Transcripts should be sent to our attention in cases where the file has been tiered for action and we don't have the transcript (international file); or for domestic files after you have admitted the student and Screen 7 on NERDC still shows that we have not received a copy of the student's transcript.
Your cooperation is very much appreciated and will be very helpful in allowing us to better serve you and our applicants during this very busy time of the year.
As always, please feel free to contact me at 392-1365 extension 7317 or [log in to unmask] if you have any questions or concerns.
