Submit

If you are admitted, submit your official documents.

As a transfer student, it is best to submit official transcripts as soon as possible. However, MSU Denver does not request your official documents when you apply. You are admitted based on the information you enter on your application and/or unofficial documents that you upload, so you should make sure all information is as accurate as possible.

If you are admitted, you will need to submit your official transcripts or GED score (and official test scores if applicable) to complete your file. Enrollment and financial aid can be impacted if you do not submit, so be sure to request them. If you will graduate from your current institution before you begin at MSU Denver, please wait to submit your transcripts until your final grades and graduation date have posted.

Learn the difference between unofficial and official transcripts.

REMINDER: You will need to submit an official transcript from each college or university attended.
