Submit Official Transcripts

All enrolling students must submit official transcripts from any institution from which they have received a degree.


If we did not receive your official transcripts, our office will contact you by mid-May as a reminder to submit your official transcripts. If you know that during the application process you submitted unofficial transcripts, we recommend beginning the process of sending your official transcripts to Harris. To submit official transcripts:

  • If your previous institutions allow you to submit electronic official transcripts, you may request those be sent to Harris at harrisadmissions@uchicago.edu.
  • Alternatively, you may request that your transcript be sent by USPS first-class mail or express shipping. Transcripts should be sent to: Harris Public Policy, ATTN: Admissions, 1307 East 60th Street, Chicago, IL 60637

Please do not send transcripts showing "unofficial" or "issued to student." We do not recommend that you hand deliver opened transcripts as these may not be considered official.


All student need to send their official transcripts from previous institutions by July 31, 2024.

Students who do not submit final transcripts showing degree conferral may not be allowed to register, or may be dropped from classes.
