STEP 2: Submit Official Undergraduate Transcripts

  • You must have official transcripts sent from any and all colleges or universities that you have previously attended directly to EKU.

  • Contact the schools you have attended and request that they send your transcripts to the address below. Most schools have an online request form for this service.

NOTE: International students are required to submit official transcript evaluations in addition to original transcripts.

All transcripts should be sent to:
