Mailing Transcripts is No Longer Required
- As of 9/1/13, you no longer need to mail or bring in your official transcripts to CDE unless specifically requested to do so.* However, high quality scans of your transcripts do need to be uploaded into your eLicensing application.
- To provide some background, CDE does not file transcripts, scores or any other documentation on your behalf. We use these documents only to evaluate your application but we do not keep them on file. Please keep your transcripts, scores, and other documentation in your own personal files in case of audit or for use in future applications.
- *We want you to have the fastest service possible! If you have been asked to mail documents to us, make sure to mail them to 6000 E Evans Ave, Building #2, Suite 100, Denver, CO 80222.
