Join us for BGSU's annual School Counselor Day where you can hear about premiere programs and majors, connect with various academic areas and student services, chat with current BGSU students about their experiences and tour some of our most unique facilities on campus. This event is all about showing you the many ways your students will belong, stand out and go far at BGSU!


School Counselor Portal

With BGSU's School Counselor Portal, you can view a listing of all students from your school who have applied to BGSU and securely upload transcripts and other official documents to their freshman or College Credit Plus application.  Log in today or request access if you are not already registered.


Submitting Transcripts, Test Scores, and Other Documents

Official transcripts, test scores, and other documents can be submitted through BGSU's School Counselor Portal or mailed to our office (address below).  BGSU also accepts electronic transcript submitted through platforms such as Naviance and Parchment.  

Common Application: BGSU can only retrieve documents uploaded through the Common Application for students who submit a Common Application to BGSU.  If a student applies to BGSU using the BGSU-hosted application (instead of the Common Application) we are unable to retrieve documents uploaded through the Common Application.  This is the case even if the student submits a Common Application to other schools and you have successfully uploaded documents to these schools.

Please see our School Counselor FAQ page for information about the application process, document submission, and our School Counselor Portal.  If mailing transcripts or other materials please send to:

Office of Admissions
200 University Hall
Bowling Green State University
Bowling Green, OH 43403
