Sending Academic Transcripts to UTHealth

All applicants to UTHealth must submit one complete official transcript from each institution of higher (i.e., post-secondary) education attended. Applicants to UT medical schools or dentistry (DDS) programs are required to submit transcripts to the campus where they are admitted in addition to the transcript which is submitted to the Texas Medical & Dental School Application Service in Austin. Transcripts with print dates over 6 months will not be accepted as "official".

The transcript should show a record of all academic work completed and must be submitted by the college or university directly to the Office of the Registrar at the following address:

Office of the Registrar 
PO Box 20036
Houston, TX 77225

Transcripts may NOT be faxed, but UTHealth partners with a number of other institutions who transmit transcripts to us electronically. A complete list of the institutions that currently send transcripts electronically to UTHealth is maintained by our office. Transcripts sent electronically by electronic data interchange (EDI) are typically received within 48 hrs of the time they are ordered. 

Transcripts from colleges and universities attended outside the United States are also required. A request form is available to assist with these requests. For help with questions regarding transcripts from international institutions, please contact the Registrar's Office at 713-500-3361.

TSI - Texas Success Initiative [Formerly TASP]

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI), formerly TASP, is a state mandated program that is designed to improve student success and outcomes in college. Any student seeking to enroll in an undergraduate program at UTHealth must provide proof of successful completion of the Texas Success Initiative prior to being enrolled. For more information on specific testing requirements, testing exemptions, and college readiness, visit the website.

Complete Criminal Background Check

The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) requires that a criminal background screening process be completed and submitted by all new students admitted to a degree or non-degree program prior to enrollment for their first term of study. International students just arriving in the U.S. are exempt, and should review the webpage for details. Accepted students who do not consent to a criminal background check or who fail to provide the report as required will not be able to enroll. Specific information will be included in the admissions packets provided to applicants that receive offers of admission.
