Official electronic transcripts can be emailed directly from the issuing university to: email@example.com.

If you have transcripts from an institution outside the United States, you must have them evaluated on a course-by-course basis by a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). Visit naces.org/members.html for a list of all university-approved agencies. This course-by-course evaluation report, once received from the NACES-approved agency, will count as your official transcript for application purposes.
After submitting your application, you will receive a confirmation email and link to schedule an interview with an admissions officer. To make the most of your trip, we suggest taking a tour of the campus and facilities during your Kellogg visit.
These interviews are mandatory and must take place on the campus to which you are applying (Evanston or Miami).
