COVID-19 Update: All official documents are required for our Admissions verification process, and every effort should be made to submit them from one of the options as listed below. However, we understand it may be difficult to obtain some of these official documents during this time.

  • Official Documents Next Steps

    Upon receipt of your documents, your official transcripts will be compared to both your application and the emailed transcripts attached by you or your school. Discrepancies and deficient grades may result in your offer of admission being withdrawn, even if UCI classes have already started. Please refer to your provisional contract and/or conditions as listed in your portal.
  • Sending Transcripts

    Postal Mail: 

    University of California Irvine
    Office of Undergraduate Admissions

    Electronically: Due to COVID-19 UCI's Office of Undergraduate Admissions will primarily be accepting documents in an online format. Please find a list of vendors and methods below:


    *Slate.Org is a platform for your counselor to upload your official transcript

    ** We will accept documents sent by National Student Clearinghouse and ask that they are sent to oars-records@uci.edu.

    ***Naviance transcripts are only accepted through Parchment

    If your school is unable to submit official transcripts electronically through the vendors listed above, we will temporarily accept verified electronic copies of your transcripts and other documents via email. They must be:

      1. Submitted by your school officials (i.e. administrators, counselors, etc) through a school domain email address.

      2. Sent to oars-records@uci.edu with this text in the subject line: ATTENTION OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS

    If you are unable to send official documents through any of the methods listed above, please contact your Admissions counselor through your UCI Admitted Student Portal. Additional next steps to submit documents temporarily will be provided through the communication with your assigned Admissions counselor. 

    ** Please note when students enroll in the fall, official documents will be required. This option is temporary to best support our incoming students during these difficult times.**
