Sending Official Records — Freshmen

Unless otherwise stated in your Admission Contract (which you can view on the MyApplication Status), the deadline for receipt of official transcripts is July 1, 2022, and the deadline for test scores is July 15, 2022.* 

Please let us know if any names on previous records differ from the names you provided on your application form. 

If we do not receive your official transcripts and test scores by the due date, a hold will be placed on your record. This will prevent you from enrolling in classes and receiving services from the university.

* Update regarding AP scores: students will not be penalized for the delay in receiving official scores from College Board for any 2021 exams. We strongly encourage students to send previous year's exams by July 15th for summer orientation purposes. 

Sending Transcripts

Electronically

Electronic transcripts are our preferred method of submission and are accepted from the following vendors:

  • Credentials, Inc.
  • E-Scrip
  • National Student Clearinghouse
  • Naviance
  • Parchment
  • Scoir

We must receive your transcript directly from the transcript vendor. Make sure to select UCLA Undergraduate Admission if required by vendor.

We won’t accept transcripts sent through email as official. If your school doesn’t utilize these vendors, you’ll need to submit official paper copies of your documents.

Please note: Once the transcript is downloaded by our office, processing time is still required. Please allow up to 10 business days for MyUCLA to be updated.

Due to volume, we cannot respond to emails requesting updates regarding transcripts/documents processing. You must check your MyUCLA portal.

By Mail

If your school is unable to send electronic transcripts via the approved vendors listed above, paper transcripts can be mailed to:

UCLA Undergraduate Admission
Attn: Transcripts
1147 Murphy Hall, Box 951436
Los Angeles, CA 90095-1436

Paper documents will only be considered official if they are sent in a sealed school envelope with a stamp or signature on the flap of the envelope.

If your school is in a country experiencing a lockdown due to COVID-19 and it is not possible to send transcripts via an electronic vendor or mail, please contact us at intlbruins@admission.ucla.edu for further assistance.

  • The transcript must show your entire high school program from grades 9–12 and graduation date.

Previous high schools

  • If you took courses at any other U.S. school that don’t show up (including grades) on the transcript from your high school of graduation, then we’ll need transcripts from these schools as well.

Colleges or universities

  • If you took courses at a college or university, submit official transcripts from those schools even if the work appears on your high school transcript. 
  • The sooner you send us these transcripts, the more likely university credit will be applied to your record when you enroll at UCLA.

  • If your secondary school transcript doesn’t contain a graduation date, please submit, in addition to your transcript, a true copy of your graduation certificate or diploma certified by your school.
  • If your school does not issue an English version of your transcript, you must submit a copy in its original language as well as a certified English translation.
  • If you attended a school system with external exams (IB, A-Levels, Indian Year XII, etc), please be sure to have your school include your predicted grades along with your transcripts.
  • If your school year finishes after July 1, please notify our office and submit your transcript as soon as it becomes available.
