  • You will be asked to upload copies of all your college transcripts for all colleges that you attended. This procedure is required for all SIU Graduate School applicants. 
  • You will also need to request “official transcripts” from all the colleges you have attended and have them sent directly to the SIU Graduate School, preferably via electronic email, or else mail. Information on where to have transcripts emailed or mailed is available on the application portal.
  • College transcripts and schools attended are subject to verification by the SIUC Graduate office if you are accepted to the program. Failure to disclose all colleges attended and all college coursework completed during the application process may result in your acceptance into DMSc being delayed and/or rescinded.
