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 [email protected]
  • 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, 1155 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.


Students who have completed their degree program and have their degree conferral on their transcripts should send their official transcripts by June 1, 2018.

Students who are currently attending a college or university and are expecting their degree to be conferred this year should submit official transcripts by July 31, 2018.
