If you are applying for a summer internship position and have not yet registered for the spring term immediately preceding the internship, please follow up with a class schedule once you are registered.
High school, undergraduate and graduate students must request and send official transcripts from their current schools verifying full-time student status. Official transcripts from any previously attended colleges where a degree(s) was awarded must also be sent.
If you are applying for a summer internship position, a transcript verifying completion of the fall term prior to the internship will be required for compensation purposes.

In the meantime, please send your unofficial transcript to progress with the hiring process.
Official electronic transcripts sent directly from the school(s) by email are preferred. Official transcripts received at Sandia in sealed envelopes via mail directly from the school(s) are also acceptable.
