Students must submit the U of M Self-Reported Academic Record (courses, grades, and test scores) rather than a transcript as part of their application to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Find out more about the Academic Record!
Common Application users must submit a U of M stand-alone Academic Record form. Although The Common Application includes a section where students can self-report grades, a complete application to the University of Minnesota requires students to submit our stand-alone institutional Academic Record form (z.umn.edu/AcademicRecord) instead. Using one Academic Record platform allows our review to be consistent across all students because the academic information is provided in a consistent manner. We sincerely appreciate each student's time investment in completing this form.
Counselors do not need to submit transcripts for students this fall/winter. If submitting a transcript is part of your process as a high school, please note that we will add it to a student's file, but it will not complete the student's application. The Academic Record is what we will be using to review a student's coursework and grades for admission. (Students who confirm their enrollment to the U of M are required to submit a final high school transcript listing their graduation date by July 1.)
