According to the Graduate Catalog, "Direct admission to the Graduate School
is dependent upon presentation of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited
college or university. Two copies of the official transcripts from all
previously attended colleges or universities should accompany all
applications-- ­­one for the department and one for the Registrar. These
transcripts must be received directly from the registrar of the institution
in which the work was done. Official supplementary transcripts are required
as soon as they are available for any work completed after application for
admission has been made."

If you have not submitted a final official transcript to the Office of the
University Registrar for all previous colleges or universities attended, a
registration hold has been placed on your file. A grace period of one
semester is permitted after admission to complete the admissions file and
the hold may be temporarily lifted one time by the Graduate School Student
Records Office for U.S. transcripts. Students with international credentials
will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  However, it is imperative that
you attend to this matter directly to avoid late fees or an interruption in
enrollment. The University must have all official credentials on file to
award a degree.
