    Transcripts/Verification Letter

    In order to verify your degree and expected date of graduation for the PMF application, you must submit both your Unofficial Transcript AND a letter from OCS. You should submit your transcript under the document type/label "Transcript" and follow instructions to add the letter from OCS to your Academic Profile under the document type/label "Other." Below are the step-by-step instructions for acquiring your Transcript and OCS letter.

    1. Access and log in with Columbia UNI and password

    2. Select "Transcript Ordering" under "Academic Records"

    - Select "Order Transcript"

    - Select "eTranscript" and complete order. The transcript delivery will not cost anything.

    - A link to a secure electronic Transcript will arrive in an email from "Columbia University in the City of New York: Parchment Delivery Service"

    - When you receive the email, click on the link to access the secure document (i.e., your transcript) and request a Transcript Access Code. You cannot access the document without the Access Code

    - The Access Code will arrive in your email. Enter the code into the secure document link

    - Select "Download" to access the PDF version of transcript

    - Save document as "First name_Last name_Transcript" (e.g., Jane_Doe_Transcript)

    3. EMAIL: sipa_ocs with SUBJECT - Request for PMF Verification Letter. Provide the following:

     a) Applicant Name

     b) Qualifying Degree (MIA or MPA)

     c) Anticipated Date of Graduation

    OCS will email you the PMF Verification Letter within 24 hours during business hours.

    Do not wait until the last minute. If you think you will apply, send in the request ASAP. You will submit this in addition to your transcript to prove your graduation date. The application tips provide instructions on how to add this letter to your transcript to upload as one document.
