1. Have official transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions from all colleges or universities attended.
Applicants formally admitted to a graduate program are required to submit official transcripts and official copies of their degrees, in a sealed envelope, from all colleges and/or universities previously attended. All documents submitted to the University of Utah become the property of the University and cannot be returned to the student. Transcripts must be sent directly from each previous school you have attended. They can be mailed to:
The University of Utah
Office of Admissions
201 South 1460 East, Room 250s
Salt Lake City, UT 84112 USA
The University of Utah accepts electronic transcripts as official from the following agencies only:
- National Student Clearinghouse
- Credential Solutions
- E-Scrip Safe
*When requesting your transcripts using any of these services please use this email email@example.com.
Documents submitted for admission become the property of the University of Utah and cannot be returned.
Failure to provide final academic credentials, including proof of degrees received, will cause a registration hold to be placed on your record which will keep you from registering for your second semester until all missing credentials are received.
2. Become familiar with the registration process of the University of Utah.
- You will find registration information, class schedules and an academic calendar at the Registrar’s Office website.
- Talk with your academic program advisor for questions related to program requirements.
3. Check for Financial Assistance.
Policy Regarding Accepting an Offer of Admission and Financial Support
The University of Utah is a member of the Council of Graduate Schools and supports their "April 15 Resolution," which outlines the obligations of graduate institutions and prospective graduate students regarding offers and acceptances of financial support. The resolution reads: Acceptance of an offer of financial support* (such as a graduate scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, or assistantship) for the next academic year by a prospective or enrolled graduate student completes an agreement that both student and graduate school expect to honor. In that context, the conditions affecting such offers and their acceptance must be defined carefully and understood by all parties.
Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of this Resolution. In those instances in which a student accepts an offer before April 15, and subsequently desires to withdraw that acceptance, the student may submit in writing a resignation of the appointment at any time through April 15. However, an acceptance given or left in force after April 15 commits the student to first inform the program that they are withdrawing or resigning from the offer of financial support that they previously had accepted. Starting in Fall 2020, applicants are no longer required to obtain a formal release from the program whose offer they accepted, either before or after the April 15 deadline. It is further agreed by the institutions and organizations subscribing to the above Resolution that a copy of this Resolution or a link to the URL should accompany every scholarship, fellowship, traineeship, and assistantship offer.
This Resolution was renewed in October 2009. *This Resolution applies to offers of financial support only, not offers of admission.
