Sending Transcripts

UCLA needs official transcripts from all institutions you have attended. Unless specifically requested in your Admission Contract, we do not require a high school transcript. You may view a copy of your Admission Contract on the Decision Site.

By Mail

Transcripts can be mailed to:

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

Note: 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.


Electronic transfers are accepted from the following vendors:

  • Credentials, Inc.
  • E-Scrip
  • National Student Clearinghouse

We must receive your transcript directly from the transcript 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.
