Welcome to the information page for students who have studied in the United States and will be submitting documentation of their studies there.

For application to bachelor's studies

High School Graduation Diploma + Official transcript for all years (9-12 or 10-12).

Your official transcript must be sent directly from your school to University Admissions in Sweden

There are two ways you can arrange this:

1. Your school can send the official transcripts from an official email address to verifications@uhr.se. This is the fastest and most reliable way to have your documents delivered.

Please note that we will not be able to answer any questions sent to this address from senders other than your school.

2. Your school can send the official transcripts in a sealed envelope to the following address: 

University Admissions in Sweden, 
R 312
SE-106 53 Stockholm
Sweden

Please note that the envelope may not contain any other documents than the official transcript.

If your school sends us your supporting documentation via a delivery service, such as FedEx or DHL, please ask them to use the address below. Do not use this address for regular post.

PostNord Strålfors
Scanning
Västberga Allé 36D 5tr
SE-126 30 Hägersten
Sweden

Please note that the envelope may not contain any other documents than the official transcript.

If you've studied at an international American high school

Transcripts from International High Schools operating within the American education system must include information about the accrediting organisation so that it is possible to determine whether the school has an accepted regional accreditation in the USA. If this information is not on the transcripts, it must be stated on the diploma or separate appendix.

Applying for programmes with higher requirements in certain subjects 

Bachelor's level programmes and courses in such areas as engineering, natural sciences and medicine require a higher level of completed study in one or more of the following subjects: mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. 

To meet the requirements for physics, chemistry and biology from an American high school education, you must have successfully taken Advanced Placement (AP) tests in these subjects. For mathematics, AP Calculus AB or BC is required. For Physics, AP Physics 1 or 2 is required.

If you have not taken AP tests in these subject but have studied them at a higher level, you must upload the curriculum from your school so that we can assess your qualifications. Your curriculum documents must be uploaded by the deadline to complete applications as indicated on Universityadmissions.se.

Uppfyller jag kraven i engelska med min gymnasieutbildning?

Ja, om du har avklarat fyra års high school engelska, vilket motsvarar den svenska kursen engelska 6. 

Obs: GED examinationen uppfyller inte kravet i engelska, då det bara motsvarar den svenska kursen engelska 5, vilket inte räcker för de flesta utbildningar. 

Kom ihåg

Du behöver också ha grundläggande behörighet i svenska och i de flesta fall i matematik.
