Delivering transcripts to Research Faculty Affairs:
- Submit an official transcript of the researcher to:
Research Faculty Affairs
Attn. Alex Council
A. French Building
(237 Uncle Heinie Way, Ste 207b)
- When delivering hard copies of official transcripts to this office, please include the reason for sending the transcript (new hire-attach routing sheet, salary increase, etc). We get many transcripts every day, and if there is no information about a transcript provided, we will not be able to process it.
Guidelines set forth by Academic Faculty Affairs for accepting/submitting official transcripts:
- All transcripts must be issued to a department representative, and not to the student. Transcripts issued to the student are never official, under any circumstances.
- Once the seal on an envelope is broken, a departmental representative should sign and date the transcript’s first page.
- The only electronic transcripts that we are able to accept in digital, .pdf form are those that are issued by Georgia Tech. All other electronic transcripts must be printed out, signed by the person requesting them, and sent to our office.
- The Office of Research Faculty Affairs cannot accept a link to online transcripts under any circumstances. Such transcripts should be downloaded, printed, signed and sent to MC 0740.
- A foreign credential evaluation is required for all degrees earned outside of the US. For foreign university systems in which English-language transcripts are not available, please submit a copy of the diploma or foreign-language transcript accompanied by a report from a credential evaluation service. A credential evaluation service is not the same as a translation service.
- Please note that it is only necessary to submit a transcript from the school where the highest degree was earned.
- A candidate can also submit an official transcript or an official letter from the Registrar's office of the institution if they have completed all of the requirements for the degree (coursework, defense, final dissertation submitted, etc.), but the degree has not yet been formally conferred. In this case, the candidate must provide evidence that all of the degree requirements have been met, along with a date of graduation. In all cases, the final, official transcript must be on file once the degree has been awarded.
