Incoming students must provide a final official transcript from the institution at which your undergraduate degree was conferred.

The final official transcript must include the following:

  • Degree(s) earned

Final official transcripts must be sent to the Brown School directly by the issuing institution or its authorized agent. We will not accept final transcripts issued to the student or sent from the student to the Brown School.

Final official transcripts must be received by July 31.
