In order for your application to be reviewed, you must send official transcripts or marksheets from all post-secondary institutions you’ve attended. You must also send proof of any degrees earned. There are several ways to send your documents to Boise State.
All documents must be issued in English or accompanied by a certified, literal English translation. If you are sending a certified English translation, you must also submit the official transcript in the original language.
Please note that we are unable to accept transcripts sent by email or fax and that we are unable to return official transcripts once we have received them.
Send Your Documents by Mail
Official transcripts must be in an envelope sealed by the issuing institution, with the institution’s official stamp across the seal of the envelope. Attested copies will only be accepted if the copy is attested by the university’s Registrar or Examination Office; in the case of attested transcripts, both the attested copy and the envelope must be stamped with the university’s official mark.

University Transcripts from China
Boise State University requires that all Chinese university transcripts and degree certificates are verified. Since this can be time consuming, Boise State will provide a preliminary admission recommendation for graduate applicants based on official transcripts without verification. Verification documents must be submitted before official final admission, class registration, and student visa paperwork can be provided. Please submit verification documents to Boise State prior to priority dates to allow sufficient time to process your student visa.
If your degree is in-progress or you did not complete your degree:
- Online Verification Report of Student Record (学籍在线验证报告) from CHESICC.
- Verification Report of China Higher Education Student’s Academic Transcript (大学成绩认证报 告) from CHESICC.
If you have completed your degree:
- Verification Report of China Higher Education Qualification Certificate (高等教育学历认证报 告) from CHESICC
- Verification Report of China Higher Education Student’s Academic Transcript (大学成线认证报 告) from CHESICC
- Degree Certificate (Chinese). Please obtain the Chinese electronic verification report of your degree certificate from China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC). You may send a copy of the electronic verification report to Boise State University by postal mail. Please ensure that the electronic verification report is up-to-date and verifiable. Degree certificates must be accompanied by a certified, word-for-word English translation.
University Transcripts from India
Please submit your Annual Statement of Marks or Academic Transcript as well as a certified copy of your final or provisional degree certificate. Boise State University does not accept consolidated marksheets.
The Annual State of Marks or Academic Transcript must be issued by the institution responsible for conducting the examinations (e.g. university, constituent or autonomous college). It should list all subjects taken and marks earned for each year of study. Please submit marksheets that have been issued and or attested by the college you attended unless you studied at an autonomous or constituent college. You can check if your college has autonomous status on the UGC website.
Boise State University only accepts documents attested and sealed by the designated official at the institution that conducted the examination (e.g. Controller of Examinations or Registrar’s Offices). Attestations by officials at affiliated colleges cannot be accepted.
You may arrange for the documents to be sent directly to Boise State University by the university or autonomous college you attended. If your university or college cannot mail directly, then please ask for the documents to be dated, attested and placed into an official sealed envelope that is signed or stamped across the back flap by the appropriate authentication officer at the institution that conducted the examination.
University Transcripts from Russia
Please have all documents certified by apostille through the authorized body of education of the Russian Federation in your region. For more information about the apostille process, please visit the Obrnadzor website. Please contact us in advance of mailing any documents.
