Test Scores and Credentials – the official scoop on unofficial documents

The application process for all graduate programs at Babson College is designed to make it easy for you to focus on presenting a strong, well rounded candidacy. You work on your application on the Babson Bridge – the same streamlined central place where you can tell us about yourself and learn a lot about your program of interest.

One of the questions candidates often ask is how to submit test scores and transcripts and if official documents are required. It’s really quite simple (and you can find the complete applications instructions here).

If you have taken the GMAT, you may upload a copy of your score report with your application. If you are admitted, you will be required to submit your official GMAT score to Babson directly from Pearson VUE. Since you may submit your application prior to taking the GMAT, we recommend that you have your score reported to Babson at the time you take the test.

You can choose to upload transcripts. However, please note that an official transcript is either a hard copy sent in a sealed envelope or copies sent to Babson directly from the institution. An unofficial transcript is a copy of any official document that you upload, email or mail us yourself. If you are admitted, you will be required to ensure you submit official copies of any unofficial transcripts. In your decision letter, you will find the submission deadline for official documents.

We hope this makes it easier for you to focus less on paperwork and more on telling us about your background, achievements and goals, but most importantly – how you see yourself becoming an entrepreneurial leader at Babson.
