1. Ask your undergrad institution to electronically send transcripts to UW Oshkosh Graduate Studies. 

We need an official, degree conferral transcript for your undergraduate degree:

We may not need transcripts from every institution you attended.

Teaching and Learning, MSE

Teaching & Learning applicants must submit the following additional materials as soon as possible.

1. Ask your undergrad institution to electronically send transcripts to UW Oshkosh Graduate Studies. 

We need an official, degree conferral transcript for your undergraduate degree:

  • Official means the transcript is sent directly from the institution to UW Oshkosh Graduate Studies. Electronic transcripts are processed most quickly.
  • While we prefer official transcripts for admission decision-making, we can use unofficial transcripts. If you are admitted, we require official transcripts before you begin taking classes. Email unofficial transcripts to GradSchool@uwosh.edu.
  • Degree-conferral means the transcript shows the name of the degree earned and the date it was awarded.

We may not need transcripts from every institution you attended.

  • If your degree conferral transcript contains 80 or more graded credits earned at that institution (this excludes transfer credits), we usually do not need to see transcripts from other institutions. If you earned fewer than 80 credits, send additional transcripts from the most recent institutions you attended until you reach at least 80 credits.
  • You may send transcripts from all institutions.

Special situations:

  • If you attended UW Oshkosh, you do not need to send UWO transcripts.
  • If you attended UW Fond du Lac or UW Fox Valley before Fall 2019, you need to request transcripts.
