Student Transcript Policy

Valar Institute requires that learners 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.

Valar Institute 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 Deadline, 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.

Please also review our Transcript Requirement FAQ page for additional information regarding transcripts and submission. 

Official Transcripts 

Valar Institute requires all students to supply official transcripts for their highest earned degree by their eighth week in the program. An official transcript is an official copy of a student’s educational record at a post-secondary institution. It usually lists 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. Please note that the Office of Enrollment Services may request additional documentation during the review process to verify transfer credit, degree conferral, or equivalency. 

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. Official physical transcripts should be mailed to the below address and must be in a sealed envelope provided by the institution or sent directly from the institution.

Please note that Valar Institute cannot be responsible for transcripts which do not make it to their destination.

If official transcripts are not available for the highest earned degree, Valar may accept official transcripts from a lesser degree on a case-by-case basis, as long as that degree confirms that the learner meets the minimum eligibility requirements. 

Submitting Unofficial Degree Documentation

Upon registration, students are required to submit unofficial transcripts confirming eligibility by the Enrollment Documents Deadline. This deadline is approximately four weeks prior to the start of each cohort. Applicants are encouraged to upload their unofficial transcripts to the Documents area of Settings during the application process to allow Enrollment Services to begin the eligibility review. Once transcripts are received, they are reviewed and verified against self-disclosed information on each student’s profile. Registered students who do not submit their unofficial transcripts, confirming their eligibility, will be deferred to a future cohort.  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.

To upload unofficial transcripts, students should follow the below steps:

  • Once logged in to your student account, you will see a box on the right-hand side titled, "Please Finish Enrollment."
  • Click on”Upload your unofficial transcripts” and you will be taken to the Documents upload page.
  • You will see an Upload button next to each of your listed degree programs.
  • Click on this button and you can upload your unofficial transcripts directly from your device.

Documents should be compiled into one PDF for each school, with an identifiable name, and the document should be legible. Documentation saved in cloud storage (eg. Google Drive links), saved as JPEG or any other inaccessible file format, file sizes over 10MB, poor resolution, missing information, or including photos or other distracting information may require follow up or resubmission.  Students should reach out to the Office of Enrollment Services with any questions regarding this process by sending an email to [email protected]

International Transcripts and Documentation

The requirements stated above also include international transcripts and degree documentation. For additional information and assistance with the submission of documentation from non-U.S. institutions, please review the Submission of International Documentation article.

Failure to Submit Transcripts and Document Discrepancy

Registered students who do not submit their unofficial transcripts, confirming their eligibility, by the Enrollment Documents Deadline will be deferred to a future cohort. These documents must be submitted prior to beginning the program. A complete list of all requirements due by the Enrollment Documents Deadline can be found here

Failure to have required official transcripts submitted by the end of the eighth week of enrollment will result in an academic hold.  If continued delinquency occurs, the student may be administratively withdrawn from the Valar Institute. 

If a discrepancy is found in any submitted documents, Enrollment Services will contact the student to rectify the discrepancy.  In situations where the Valar Institute finds that a student intentionally misrepresented themselves on their application or academic history, the student will be administratively withdrawn from the program.  

Document Retention

Transcripts and degree documentation are retained in perpetuity as a permanent part of a student’s record. We cannot return any type of document once submitted.
