Submit Transcripts & Scores
Transcripts – High School, College, College Credit Plus (PSEO/CCP)
If you have completed college courses while in high school or after high school, request that an official transcript of your course work be sent from your previous college/university to Ohio State.
Should I send a transcript before final grades have posted?
Email the Orientation & Placement Testing Office a list of all college level courses (completed & in progress). Provide the name of the college/university, semester, course name, course number, and grades (if previous semesters included). Be sure to request final transcripts be sent once final grades have been posted. Some colleges/universities offer an option to order transcripts early and indicate you want them sent once final grades are posted.
If you have course credit from a state (public) university in Ohio or a community college, when ordering a transcript from your prior school, request that your transcript(s) be sent electronically. Sending paper transcripts by mail or overnight delivery will delay processing time.
For all other institutions, if your school offers electronic delivery, choose that option to avoid processing delays. If ordering a transcript online, select The Ohio State University as a recipient. In the absence of a list of universities to select, have your school send your transcript directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your school does not offer electronic delivery, please have your transcript(s) mailed to the address below:
The Ohio State University
P.O. Box 182646
Columbus, OH 43218-2646
Transcripts should not be delivered by the student or sent to other addresses on campus. Doing so will prevent acceptance of the transcript as official, and a transfer credit evaluation will not be completed.
- Faxed transcripts are never considered official.
- College coursework listed on high school transcripts is not sufficient.
- Any college-level coursework helps determine placement testing requirements.
College courses from official transcripts will be evaluated and a Transfer Credit Report will be created. Learn more about the Transfer Credit Report at go.osu.edu/transfer_credit.
ACT/SAT scores and Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate (AP/IB) scores
If you took these tests, these scores help determine your placement testing requirements. Scores printed on high school transcripts or photocopied test results are not acceptable.
Scores must be sent electronically by the testing organization to Ohio State.
