Upon acceptance, you will be instructed to have official transcripts/documents (for institutions outside the U.S. documents may include marksheets, record of courses, degree/study certificate, diploma, etc) sent from all post-secondary institutions attended and official English translation if the language of instruction is not English.  You should wait until your degree has been conferred to arrange for the official transcripts/documents to be sent.  Deadlines for the receipt of this documentation will be displayed on your status page.
