Sending your Official Transcripts to the University of Oregon

Electronic Delivery:  If your previous institution(s) offer official electronic copies sent by a secured provider (e.g., National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, Scrip Safe), you may have them sent directly from the institution to

Transcripts are not accepted as official when received by fax or as email attachments.  Please work directly with your institutions regarding sending transcripts electronically.

The University of Oregon only accepts transfer credit that is received directly from regionally accredited colleges and universities. Transcripts received as email attachments are not considered official. Credits earned at junior colleges and community colleges are always transferred at the lower division level. Credits earned at a four-year institution are transferred at both the lower and upper-division credit, depending on what level the original course was taught.

Students may transfer in an unlimited number of credits to clear degree requirements, but only 124 credits from junior or community colleges will be counted toward the total number of credits required for the degree (of this only 90 credits may be transferred from an international junior college). Remember that students must earn a minimum number of upper-division credits (62) in order to graduate. Therefore, students who transfer the full 124 credits from a community college will ultimately graduate with more than the required minimum of 180 credits for the BA or BS degrees.

Returning to the University of Oregon to complete a degree or start a new degree program?

Official transcripts need to be sent to the Office of the Registrar for evaluation of transfer credit if:

  • It has been more than 10 years since your last date of attendance at University of Oregon.
  • You attended another college/university since last attending the University of Oregon.
  • Do not submit a University of Oregon transcript.

It is important that your transfer record reflect accurate coursework and grades. Transfer equivalents are based on current transfer tables.
