Students must submit one official transcript from all institutions they have attended.* There are three ways to submit transcripts:
- Request an official transcript sent directly from the institution's registrar's office to the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Graduate Admission office. Use the complete address for the CHSS Graduate Admissions Office which is provided on this website. The mail stop number -- MSN 2D2 -- is important to the prompt delivery of your transcript.
- Send an official transcript yourself to the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Graduate Admission office. The transcript must be unopened, in an official sealed institutional envelope signed or stamped across the seal by the registrar's office of the originating institution.
- Request an electronic transcript. Some universities now issue electronic transcripts. For the transcript to be considered official, it must be sent directly from the issuing institution to George Mason University through a secure process. Our office cannot accept transcripts as email attachments. Electronic transcripts must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Applicants do not need to provide transcripts from study abroad programs whose courses are included on the home university's transcript.
