What is an official transcript?

An official transcript or degree certificate is issued from the original source (i.e., college, university, technical school, or secondary school). Official documents must arrive at Portland State in the original sealed envelope as issued by the originating institution.

Official transcripts should be mailed to the following address:

Portland State University, Office of Admissions
PO Box 751
Portland, OR 97207 - 0751
