To complete an application for admission to the OSR program, you will need to submit official transcripts from the last two years of the baccalaureate degree and any post-baccalaureate course work. A completed undergraduate degree must be verified prior to enrollment. BGI does accept official transcripts received electronically from the issuing school’s registrar.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY
International applicants whose baccalaureate degree was not completed in English must provide evidence of English proficiency by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Minimum TOEFL iBT Total Score Requirement: 90. Minimum TOEFL PBT Total Score Requirement: 600. International applicants with extensive work experience or previous study in the U.S. may request to have the TOEFL requirement waived. TOEFL scores are valid for two years from the test date. BGI’s institution code is 1924.
To obtain your official transcripts, you’ll need to contact each school’s registrar’s office and make a request.
Your official transcripts must document:
- satisfactory completion of a bachelor’s degree;
- courses completed at all schools;
- grades you received at all schools.
Your official transcripts must be:
- issued and embossed by each school’s registrar;
- sealed by each of the issuing school’s registrar or associated clearing house service (opened or tampered envelopes are not acceptable);
- and sent directly (transcripts coming from any other source are not acceptable) to BGI at:
Bainbridge Graduate Institute
220 Second Avenue South, Suite 400
Seattle, WA 98104
IMPORTANT NOTE: Opened or tampered transcript envelopes or transcripts coming from any other source other than the schools (or associated clearing house service) themselves are considered unofficial and unacceptable. Transcripts “issued to student” are not considered official transcripts and are unacceptable.
FOREIGN TRANSCRIPTS: If you have studied outside of the U.S., your foreign academic credentials and official transcripts will need to be evaluated by an approved agency recognized by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) to determine the degree equivalent within the U.S. educational system. You will need to pay for and provide this information. Please contact the Admissions Department for more information.
