  2. Undergraduate transcripts, submitted online
    • Applicants must submit university-issued copies of their most recent transcripts available at the time of application. Transcripts are uploaded as Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) files into the application system, and must be clearly legible, must be labeled with your name and the name of the university/college, must clearly show all courses and course grades and cumulative GPA, and must have both your social security number and date of birth removed or blackened out.
    • Acceptable transcripts may either be (i) an official transcript that has been signed by the university/college registrar sent to you in a sealed envelope that you have opened (thus unofficial) and scanned with social security number and date of birth blackened out prior to uploading into the application system, or (ii) an unofficial transcript provided electronically to you directly from your university/college either via a website or email and is marked “unofficial”, and also with social security number and date of birth blackened out prior to uploading into the application system.
    • Applicants must provide copies of undergraduate transcripts for each undergraduate academic institution enrolled and attended to be considered.

    • Applicants are encouraged to make the requests for recommendations as soon as possible. It is the applicant’s responsibility to inform their recommenders that they must submit their recommendation using the online system by the application deadline. Additionally, it is suggested that the applicant discuss this request in advance with potential recommenders, and allow adequate time for the recommender to act on this request.
    • Applicants must have two recommendations submitted in support of their application. Recommendations from individuals familiar with the applicant’s education, training, experience, aptitude, or promise relevant to the SULI Program are suggested.
    • Based upon recommender contact information entered as part of the application process, the application system automatically sends an email message to recommenders with information on how to access and submit their recommendation. Requests for recommendations can be made by using the “Final Submit” action in the recommendation request section.
    • WDTS will not accept any mailed or emailed recommendations.
    • Applicants may solicit a minimum of two, but up to three, recommendation requests from individuals familiar with the applicant’s education, training, experience, aptitude, or promise relevant to the SULI Program. The first two recommendations that are completed in the system will be the only ones included with your application.
