Is an uploaded copy of my U.S. birth certificate considered official?

No. Unfortunately, Board of Regents policy mandates that we can only accept official birth certificates. The U.S. birth certificate must either be hand-delivered or sent in by mail. You may send it by mail with a prepaid, self- addressed envelope, and we will return the original birth certificate to you.
