If you have taken one or more college courses (while in high school or after high school), then an official transcript for those courses needs to be on file with Ohio State.
An official transcript is one sent directly from each college/university where courses were taken to Ohio State and the student must contact each school to request transcripts be sent.
Transcripts should be sent electronically, if possible. The address to have them sent to is:
If electronic delivery is not possible, have transcript(s) mailed to the address below:
The Ohio State University
P.O. Box 182646
Columbus, OH 43218-2646
- Students currently enrolled in a course can request that their transcript be sent once final grades are posted at the end of the semester.
- Be sure to keep any confirmations received by the school in case a transcript is not received in an appropriate amount of time, so you have proof of requesting it.
- Transcripts sent via U.S. Mail or Overnight will take longer to process than transcripts sent electronically.
- Once received, transcripts for admitted students should be evaluated within 7-10 business days. Instructions for Viewing Transfer Credit Evaluation (PDF)
- Unofficial transcripts (those not sent directly from the school to Ohio State, as well as college courses listed on a high school transcript) are NOT accepted by the University.
OFFICIAL TEST SCORES (ACT, SAT, AP & IB)
