Official transcripts from all community colleges, colleges, and/or universities attended

An undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university is required. A transcript is a record of all your academic coursework. Official transcripts can be sent electronically or in paper form. For your transcript to be considered official, it must be sent directly from your institution, approved transcript service (e.g. Parchment), or delivered in an envelope sealed with an official seal, stamp, signature from your institution.

International students only

Transcripts from institutions outside of the U.S. and related territories must also include a course-by-course evaluation completed by a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). Visit our resources for international students to learn more about additional admission requirements.

3 letters of recommendation

A letter of recommendation is a written statement from a person who knows you well enough to talk about your character, integrity, and academic potential. Consider asking your current employer, instructor(s), community leaders, or anyone else who can speak professionally about you and your accomplishments to write a letter of recommendation for you.

Official GRE or PRAXIS score, if required

Certain graduate programs may require official standardized test scores for the Graduate Admissions Committee to reference when making admission decisions.

If your program requires GRE or PRAXIS scores, Coppin State University’s school codes are:

  • GRE: 5122 Coppin State College
  • PRAXIS: RA5122 Coppin State University
