Applicants must provide official transcripts from all institutions attended. Official transcripts are those sent in sealed envelopes directly from the issuing institution directly to the Office of Admissions. Copies of transcripts sent by applicants or any other source will be considered unofficial.
Transcripts from a foreign institution MUST be evaluated for equivalency before being sent to Lehigh University. Credential evaluation means converting foreign academic credentials into their U.S. educational equivalents. By converting your educational qualifications into their U.S. equivalents, the evaluation allows academic institutions or employers in the U.S. to understand them. Lehigh University does not promote these services; we inform you of their existence. Please request that these services mail you a course-by-course evaluation converted to U.S. credits and grades.
Transcripts in a language other than English must be accompanied by an official English translation. The translations must also be sent in a sealed envelope directly from the issuing translator directly to the Admissions Office.
All transcripts should reflect a detailed statement of the courses completed, the amount of time spent on each course, the grade earned, and an explanation of the grading system used. Any degree, certificate, or diploma awarded should be clearly indicated and included if possible.
All transcripts should be mailed to:
