Official English language documents are required.  If the institution attended issues documents in English, third-party translations cannot be considered official academic records.  English translations must bear the original stamp of the institution attended or certified translator and be submitted in a sealed envelope that has been stamped by the appropriate authority.

Transcripts from institutions inside the United States and Canada must be mailed directly to UMSL by the high school or university attended. Transcripts issued to a student will not be considered official, even if submitted in a school sealed envelope.

Students enrolled at international high schools should refer to the requirements for the country in which their high school’s curriculum is recognized.
