Yes. Unofficial transcripts may be sent via high school counselors or college staff and will be used for initial application review. However, any offers of admission based on unofficial transcripts are conditional upon later receipt of an official transcript.

Official ACT and SAT scores are still required to complete a freshman application or a transfer application where the applicant has less than 30 transferrable credit hours. Applicants may request their official ACT test scores at act.org and SAT test scores at collegeboard.org.

Yes. All international applicants must provide proof of English proficiency.  We know that our international students have the greatest potential for success when they have an effective comprehension of the English language.

We are working with all students who receive Pass (P) or Credit (CR) grades (or their equivalent). Courses completed in spring 2020 with Pass (P) or Credit (CR) grades (or their equivalent) will satisfy appropriate letter grade requirements. Additionally, courses completed in spring 2020 with P or CR grades will be recognized and totaled as part of the 30 completed credit hours for transfer students.

Completing major preparatory coursework with letter grades may be an admissions factor for individual programs. In such cases, departmental faculty and campus offices have been encouraged to be as flexible with summer 2020/ fall 2020 transfer students as possible. Please inquire with academic advisors in your program with questions. We encourage you to visit individual program websites for more information or to set up a virtual appointment with an academic advisor.

In most cases this should not have a negative effect.  Pass (P) or Credit (CR) courses completed in spring 2020 will not impact student scholarship awards or financial aid for fall 2020. Contact the scholarships area by email at scholarship@utah.edu if you have any concerns about your scholarship
