Submitting Your Transcripts

For your application to the online master’s in sport management program, you will need to submit an official transcript from every college or university you have attended, even if a degree was not ultimately earned.

Transcripts are only considered to be official if they arrive in a sealed envelope from the college or university, so you should request the university to send your transcript to the University of Kansas directly.

Any submitted transcript that has been issued directly to the student will only be accepted if the envelope is unopened—once the envelope seal has been broken by someone other than a KU employee, the transcript becomes unofficial. Although unofficial transcripts may be submitted for initial review in the admissions process, your admission will be considered provisional until the official transcript is obtained and verified. Official transcripts are required prior to the 2nd semester. An enrollment hold is placed on students who do not have official transcripts on file and they won’t be able to enroll for their second semester.

Your official transcript should be sent to:

The University of Kansas
Office of Graduate Admissions
313 Strong Hall
1450 Jayhawk Blvd.
Lawrence, KS 66045

If you any questions at all regarding your official or unofficial transcripts, please reach out to an Admissions Advisor at 855-639-7799.
