We need original transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate institutions you have attended, sent directly from the school. If you are currently finishing your bachelor’s degree, we will need an official transcript directly from the school for admission, then a final transcript that reflects your degree awarded once you complete your bachelor’s degree.

Send via email: If your institution offers electronic transcripts, ask them to email your transcript(s) to gradadmissions@stthomas.edu.

Send via mail: Paper transcripts must be submitted in sealed envelopes and signed by the appropriate university official. Send to:

All international applicants and non-native speakers of English must submit scores from the TOEFL, IELTS or Duolingo to be considered for admission. Score reports can be no more than two years old to be accepted.

To apply to the MS in Supply Chain Management program, you must have at least the international equivalent of a four-year bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited U.S. institution. If you completed your undergraduate or graduate work at a college or university outside of the United States, you must complete a transcript evaluation. There are two ways to complete this evaluation (choose one):

  1. Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE) and World Education Services (WES) are independent transcript evaluation services that St. Thomas accepts for international transcript evaluation. If you choose to have ECE or WES do your evaluation, you will receive a copy of the evaluation. To use ECE or WES, visit either site and choose the “Start Your Evaluation” option. For ECE, you will choose "Course-by-Course" evaluation and for WES, you will choose "WES ICAP" evaluation.
  2. If you already have a transcript evaluation, or would prefer to use a service other than ECE or WES, email the admissions office or call (651) 962-8800. We first need to ensure that the evaluation service you use is accepted by our university.
