Transcripts

Transcripts

Students applying for admission to the Dual BA Program Between Columbia University and Sciences Po must submit an official* high school transcript as part of their application file. Dual BA students come from a broad range of high schools and educational backgrounds, and the admissions committee is experienced in reading school records from around the world. When ordering transcripts, students should request records of their last three completed academic years, in addition to any predicted scores or preliminary grades available from the current academic year; the equivalent of 9th-12th grades in the United States.

*Official documents are those that arrive in a sealed envelope directly from the institution or testing service. All non-English language documents must be accompanied by a certified English translation.

Please consult the list below for further clarification on the types of international academic records required by the admissions committee (please note that this list is not comprehensive; if you have questions about the types of documents required for your personal academic background, please contact our offices via email at spo-dualba@columbia.edu):
