You must have international transcripts, academic records, mark sheets, and degree certifications sent directly from the issuing institution if:

  • you received your bachelor's degree from an institution outside of the United States, its territories, or Canada, and you are applying to a law school that requires the authentication and evaluation feature of the Credential Assembly Service (CAS); or
  • you were directly enrolled at one or more institutions outside of the United States, its territories, or Canada; the total amount of work you completed at all of these institutions combined is the equivalent of more than one year of undergraduate study in the United States, its territories, or Canada; and you are applying to a law school that requires the authentication and evaluation feature of CAS.

Copies of all international educational records must be submitted in the original language. If the transcript or other required documents are not in English, a translation must be included.

Do NOT have a transcript sent from an international institution if your bachelor's degree is from a US, US territory, or Canadian school, AND
