Applicants must send final official transcripts from each institution for all completed university course work, in a sealed envelope (if the original seal from the institution has been broken, it will not be considered official). In addition, international students need to send their certification of degree for all completed degree programs. Please mail all official transcripts and certificates of degree directly to the following address:
Chemistry Graduate Admissions
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
300 A&B Noyes Lab, Box 57-1
600 S. Mathews Avenue
Urbana, IL 61801
(800)516-0276 (US only)
For the purpose of admissions consideration, we encourage you to upload digital/scanned copies of your official transcripts with your application. (Note: We will not accept class lists or grade reports. Transcripts must contain the name of the institution and have the university seal to be accepted as a transcript). Please keep in mind that submitting digital/scanned transcripts with the online application does not replace the requirement to submit final official transcripts directly to the Chemistry Graduate Admissions Office. Final official transcripts must be submitted as soon as they become available. If you have earned a degree, your transcript must indicate the date your degree was conferred, otherwise, it will not appear that your degree has been completed. Your admission will not be considered “complete” until your final official transcripts are received. Please contact the Graduate Admissions Office if you have any further questions.
