Missing Items

Transcript — Mid-Year or Mid-Year Report

Emory University does not require mid-year reports and transcripts for Early Decision I applicants. If it is listed on your checklist, it is because we need it for another decision plan.

We understand these materials are usually not available until late December/early January. It will continue to appear as “awaiting” on your checklist until it is received. Mid-year reports and transcripts are due by January 25 for Early Decision II applicants and February 15 for Regular Decision applicants.

In the meantime, application files for all decision plans, including Scholars, will be reviewed without mid-year reports and transcripts.

These documents must be submitted by your high school guidance counselor or school official once they become available in January. We are unable to accept updates from the applicant.

If you applied through the Common Application or Coalition Application: The mid-year report and updated transcript can be submitted by your counselor through the Common Application or the Coalition Application. They can also be emailed as an attached PDF to admission@emory.edu and should include:

  • Your full name as it appears on your application
  • Your date of birth
  • Your application ID#

If you applied through the QuestBridge Application: QuestBridge applicants need only to have their counselor send an updated mid-year transcript with first semester senior grades.

What if I can't meet the deadline? If an applicant's school is unable to submit the mid-year report by the stated deadline, we will accept and process late reports. We request that your school counselor submit the report as soon as possible along with a short note regarding the delay.

Standardized Test Scores (SAT, ACT, or TOEFL)

Applicants are required to have standardized exam scores sent directly by the testing agency to Emory University. Emory University codes are:

  • SAT: 5187
  • ACT: 0810

Read more about our standardized exam policies for further details.

If you have requested your scores to be sent, one of the most common reasons test scores are missing is that your record with the College Board or ACT uses a different spelling or arrangement of your name than your admission application. Please let us know if this may be the case with you. Email admission@emory.edu with details on:

  • The date you submitted your scores
  • The potential arrangement(s) of your name
  • The arrangement of your name on your application
  • Your date of birth
  • Your application ID#

Request that your high school counselor or school registrar submit official copies directly to Emory University through the Common Application or Coalition Application.
