High School Transcripts

All students must submit an official transcript from their high school. These transcripts must be mailed directly from your school to the University of Northwestern Ohio to be recognized as official.

Please contact your high school and request that they send a copy to:

In order for the University of Northwestern Ohio to consider the transcript official the following information must be included:

  • Date of Graduation
  • Signature of School Official
  • Rank of Student
  • Imprint/Raised Seal
  • GPA - cumulative


* High School must note on the transcript if it does not rank students; use a raised seal or signature.
