Successful completion of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution is a requirement for admission to Pinchot.  To complete an application for admission to BGI at Pinchot’s MBA programs, Pinchot requires that you submit an official transcript from the college or university from which you earned your bachelor’s degree. Pinchot accepts official transcripts received electronically and via post from the issuing school’s registrar.

Transcript Instructions

Pinchot must receive an official transcript from the college or university you earned your bachelor’s degree from. Although we only require an official transcript from the institution from which you earned your bachelor’s degree, should you list additional colleges or institutions on your application materials  (resume, application, etc.), then you must submit corresponding official transcripts. Please make certain your correspondence with us is in agreement regarding the institutions listed on your application materials and the transcripts you submit.

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;
  • all courses completed;
  • all grades received.

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 Pinchot at:

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.

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.

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.
