2. Prepare transcripts
You must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions. Learn more about transcript requirements. Current Ohio State students do not need to submit Ohio State transcripts.

Most programs offered at Ohio State use an electronic system for submitting references. However, some programs still require paper reference forms. Refer to your program's website for details.
TIP! As a courtesy to your recommenders, allow sufficient time for references to be completed and submitted. Online invitations go out to recommenders after you submit your application.
