If you attended a U.S. school with eTranscript services (eSCRIP-SAFE, Docufide, Parchment Exchange or directly from the accredited U.S. college and university), you may use this service to submit your transcripts ONLY to the Purdue Office of Graduate Admissions at email@example.com. (DO NOT send documents to the Purdue Industrial Engineering Graduate Office.) If you use an eTranscript service to submit your documents, you do not need to submit official (paper) transcripts.
Please follow the two steps below:
1. Scan and Upload Your Electronic Transcripts to Your Online Application
You must upload to the online application transcripts and/or academic documents for every institution of higher education you attended – regardless of whether or not a degree was received. Your transcripts must be from each college or university you have attended (even if you didn't graduate) and include evidence of the Bachelor's degree awarded, either on your final transcript or a copy of your original diploma (degree certificate). If the documents are not in English, you must upload an English translation certified by the college or university which issued it.
The uploaded transcript and/or academic document must be the official version of the document. An official transcript bears the original signature of the registrar and/or the original seal of the issuing institution. An unofficial transcript printed from your current/previous institution's student system is not an acceptable document.
2. Submit or Bring in Person Your Official (Paper) Transcripts upon Admission
If you are admitted, the Office of Graduate Admissions will send you an admission offer letter. Please note all instructions and deadlines. If you choose to accept and enroll at Purdue University, you are then required to provide official (paper) transcripts and/or academic records.
An official transcript bears the original signature of the registrar and/or the original seal of the issuing institution. Your transcripts must be from each college or university you have attended (even if you didn't graduate) and include evidence of the Bachelor's degree awarded, either on your final transcript or on a copy of your official diploma (degree certificate). If the documents are not in English, you must attach a certified translation from the college or university which issued it.
Official documents must be mailed directly from your institution's Registrar's office to:
Office of Graduate Admissions
Purdue University Graduate School
155 South Grant Street, YONG 170
West Lafayette, IN 47907
The Office of Graduate Admissions also accepts electronic transcripts from accredited U.S. colleges and universities sent via eSCRIP-SAFE, Docufide, Parchment Exchange, or directly from the accredited U.S. college and university. Under a new pilot program (effective August 1, 2014) the Office of Graduate Admissions will also accept electronic transcripts from colleges and universities in India via TrueCopy Credentials or Parchment Exchange. The transcript must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Office of Graduate Admissions does not accept electronic transcripts from international colleges or universities except for those noted in the pilot program above. Transcripts will not be returned.
The Purdue University Graduate School reserves the right to require official transcripts and/or academic documents at any time during the admissions process.
