Transcript Requirements

We require official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended, regardless of whether you completed your degree program or credit appears as transfer credit on another transcript. A transcript is official when it has been sent directly to us from your institution; or, if the transcript has been mailed to you, it remains sealed (closed) in the original envelope provided by the institution. We will not accept a transcript if the envelope has been opened. We also accept transcripts sent via a secure e-scrip delivery service (preferred and recommended) to [email protected]. An email from a school representative is not secure and is not accepted as official.

Please note the following:

  • The checklist in your application portal does not track the receipt of official versus non-official documents. If you are uncertain which of your official documents are missing, please email [email protected] to inquire.
  • Bachelor's or Master's degree transcripts must be both official and final. Please do not have your official transcript sent until after your school has posted the degree awarded date on the document, otherwise you will have to resend your transcript.
  • If you studied internationally, your transcript must be sent through an approved credentialing agency
  • Students who attended GW previously are not required to provide an official GW transcript.

If mailing your transcripts please send them to the address below:

The George Washington University School of Nursing
45085 University Drive, Suite 108
Ashburn, VA 20147

All official transcripts should arrive no later than the end of your first semester.
