Transcript Requirement FAQ
Valar Institute at Quantic School of Business requires that students have earned at least a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. institution or its international equivalent from an accredited international institution, as determined by an internal evaluation or a NACES-approved evaluation service.
The Office of Enrollment Services takes measures to verify the prior academic history of all students. Upon registration, students are required to submit unofficial transcripts confirming that the minimum eligibility criteria is met by the Enrollment Documents Deadlines, four weeks prior to the start of the program. Additionally, Valar Institute requires all students to supply official transcripts for their highest earned degree by their eighth week in the program. Documents emailed or mailed directly from a student will be considered unofficial. If students are able to provide an official transcript directly from their prior institution by the Enrollment Documents Deadline, the unofficial transcript would not be necessary.

Failure to complete these enrollment requirements or meet eligibility requirements may result in deferral or even removal from the program. Please also review our Student Transcript Policy for additional information regarding transcripts and submission.
An official transcript is an official copy of a student’s educational record at a post-secondary institution that is sent to Valar directly from the institution. Transcripts are different from a diploma certificate or degree confirmation letter. Transcripts usually list all courses taken, final grades received, credits (and honors) earned, degrees or certifications awarded including corresponding dates of enrollment and completion, and includes the registrar's original signature and/or the original seal of the issuing institution. Transcripts are also commonly referred to as Marksheets, Diploma Supplements, or Higher Education Academic Records (HEAR) documentation.
Unofficial transcripts can be sent to us via email or uploaded by you into your student profile. Unofficial transcripts also contain courses taken, grades, etc. however do not necessarily have the seal of the issuing institution and are not supplied directly from the institution. All copies, scans, student uploads, or forwarded documents from students will be categorized as unofficial documents.
Official transcripts must be mailed or emailed directly from the degree-granting institution or an authorized third party to the Office of Enrollment Services ( [email protected]). Emailed transcripts should be sent from the office or department designated by the university to issue/ retain student academic records. You may opt to mail the official transcript yourself, however they must be in an envelope sealed by the degree-granting institution.
If students are able to provide an official transcript directly from their prior institution by the Enrollment Documents Deadline, the unofficial transcript would not be necessary.
We accept both official digital OR official physical transcripts. It is recommended that students request the official transcript as soon as possible. The transcript is not required to be mailed physically in order to be considered official. If your institution is able to process digital transcripts, we highly recommend that you request the transcript to be sent electronically. Electronic transcript submission is often a more efficient option in the request process. If your prior institution is unable to send digital transcripts, we also accept physical transcripts mailed directly from your prior institution.
Official digital transcripts should be emailed to [email protected], either directly from your institution or from a secure third-party service used by your prior institution, such as National Student Clearinghouse, OpenCerts, etc.
Official physical transcripts should be mailed to the following address:
Quantic School of Business & Technology
2810 N Church St
Wilmington, Delaware 19802-4447

While not required, it is recommended that students secure a tracking number for official transcripts that are sent through physical mail in order for Enrollment Services to confirm when the transcript is sent and received.

Translated transcripts must be submitted by the degree-granting institution itself, the Ministry of Education (or another governing body), or a NACES-member evaluation service.

Valar Institute accepts three-year bachelor’s degrees earned from institutions that are members of the Bologna Process. For applicants who have earned three-year bachelor’s degrees from accredited institutions that are not part of the Bologna Process, Valar Institute conducts an internal review and, if necessary, requires a third-party evaluation of submitted transcripts by a NACES-approved evaluation service. Based on the results of this review and evaluation, Valar Institute determines whether applicants are eligible for admission to the programs offered. If the evaluation results demonstrate that an applicant does not meet the stated minimum eligibility requirements, the applicant will be denied full admission to the degree programs. If applicants completed additional academic study beyond the three-year bachelor’s degree (e.g., a master’s degree, postgraduate diploma, or other postgraduate degrees), these degrees will be considered during the eligibility review.
Please do not mail any irreplaceable documents such as your original diploma. We cannot return any documents once they are submitted to us. We would be happy to work with you to find the best solution to meet the transcript requirement. Please contact our office at [email protected] to discuss available options.
Most universities will provide transcripts or diploma supplements to other institutions' registrars upon request of the student. We recommend reaching out to a relevant office at your institution to submit this request. If this is not possible, or if you have any questions, please email [email protected] and we will review your options with you.
For students who previously attended an international institution that cannot provide official transcripts due to extenuating circumstances, we may be able to offer a verification service to confirm your academic eligibility. For more information regarding the evaluation, translation, or verification of international documents, please review the Submission of International Documents article.
If official transcripts are temporarily unavailable due to COVID-19 restrictions, you can submit unofficial transcripts under our COVID-19 Transcript Extension Policy.

Official transcripts will be due prior to your anticipated date of graduation in order to receive your diploma and other graduation documentation (e.g., Valar official transcripts). As a part of the COVID-19 Extension Policy, you will still be required to provide updates on your official transcript request throughout your matriculation. Failure to provide adequate updates or communication regarding this requirement may result in removal from the program in accordance with Valar's official transcript requirement.
If the name on your transcript does not match your student record, please let us know in advance of sending an official transcript for the highest degree earned. We may request name change documentation on a case-by-case basis.
Please visit your student dashboard and check the Enrollment section on the right-hand side. This section will update once all enrollment requirements are satisfied. Please note that during high volume periods, it can take 1-2 weeks to upload documents that arrive via mail.
