July 1 Finalizing Your Admission Admissions requires that all student submit both their final high school transcript and a date of graduation. 1) At most U.S. high schools, the final transcript lists both the spring/final grades and the date (day, month, and year) of a student's graduation, so submitting the final transcript alone fulfills both requirements.

2) High school outside the United States often do not list the date of graduation on the transcript. In these cases, you must have your high school send a separate letter/certificate on school letterhead that verifies your date of graduation. This is in addition to the final transcript.
