Credentials and Document Translation

Required Credentials

Applicants to a graduate program must have earned at least the equivalent of a U.S. four-year bachelor's degree beyond the 12th grade of secondary or high school from an institution recognized by that country's ministry of education. Most three-year bachelor's degrees are not acceptable. An overall grade point average of 3.0 (based on 4.0 scale) or better is expected.

Scanned, unofficial copies of transcripts, mark sheets, diplomas and/or degree certificates should be uploaded through the online graduate application. Review the application instructions for directions on submitting documents.

Official documents must be sent directly to UT Dallas from the issuing institution if you have been admitted and are ready to enroll. To submit your official transcripts and other documents, you may use one of the following electronic uploading systems: Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, eSCRIP-SAFE, Credentials Solutions, Standardization of Postsecondary Education Data Exchange (SPEEDE), Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS), TrueCopy (international) or WES International Credential Advantage Package (ICAP).

Document Translation

All documents must be submitted in their original language with certified English translations. The translation must be provided by the issuing academic institution or government agency.
