What is the difference between a transcript and a degree certificate? How do I know which to submit with my application for admission to Portland State?

Institutions in many countries do not include degree information on their transcripts, but issue separate degree certificates for this purpose. Examples include (but are not limited to) institutions in China, India, Russia, and Latin America.

You should always submit official transcripts with your admission application. If your transcripts do not include degree information, you should also submit official degree certificates.
