Submitting Transcripts/Mark Sheets and Diplomas/Degree Certificates

International applicants must submit an official, original document in the native language of each transcript/mark sheet and diploma/degree certificate from each university or college attended. If the native language for the documents is not English, certified, literal (exact) English translations are required. The English translation may come from the original university or may be completed by a certified translator.

Transcripts/mark sheets and diplomas/degree certificates with English translations (if required) should be assembled by students and sent to the address below in one package. If the student would like their transcript/mark sheet and diploma/degree certificate returned, the student must provide a return shipping label and return packaging in the admissions package.*

Packages must be sent to:
University of Florida
Attn: Distance Education Support Services

*We must have the original diploma verifying that the degrees reported were earned. We keep the diploma locked and safe until after application materials are processed and an application decision can be made. Once a decision is made, we will send the diploma back to the student via the label and packaging that you provide. While the University of Florida handles all documents with care, we are not responsible for documents that are lost or damaged in the mail.
