The Master of Biostatistics Program requires one copy of the scanned electronic transcript from all graduate and undergraduate institutions where:

  • you earned (or will earn) a degree,
  • studied for one semester or more,
  • earned 12 or more hours of credit,  
  • took classes that relate to your graduate study interests.

If you are admitted, you must submit official transcipts from all linstitutions listed in the Educational Background section of your application, regardless of the number of credits earned. 

Transcripts should be submitted to the Master of Biostatistics Program via upload during the course of filling out the online application. It is critical all required transcripts be uploaded to the online application. The uploaded transcripts must be legible. If your Social Security Number (SSN) appears on your transcripts, please mark out all except the last four digits of the number before uploading the transcripts to your application. For further details on uploading a transcript, please refer to the Uploading a Transcript sub-section.

If you are offered admission, and join the Master of Biostatistics program, we will ask for confidential, official transcripts at that time. Do not send official transcripts prior to receiving an offer of admission. 


You do not need to provide a separate transcript for a study abroad course, as long as the name of the study abroad institution, the course name, and the course grade appear on our baccalaureate transcript.

If all of these course details do NOT appear on the baccalaureate transcript, consider the following questions:

  • Did you receive at least 12 hours of credit from the institution?
  • Did you attend the institution for at least one semester?
  • Did the courses you completed relate to your graduate study interests?

If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, please obtain a transcript from the study abroad institution and upload a copy of that transcript to your application. If the answer to all of the questions is no, you do not need to provide a transcript for the course.


The academic records that we refer to as transcripts should provide a listing, year-by-year, of all courses taken and the grade or marks received for each one. It is helpful to have the grading scales of the institution and the student’s rank in class included when such information is available. Do not submit secondary school records. To be considered, all documents not in English must be accompanied by English translations from the issuing institution or a professional translation service.
