How do you use my identification documents and transcripts / academic records?

These documents are solely for identity verification and will not be shared or sold to any third party. Once we have verified your identity, we will immediately delete your scanned ID and you will see a verified icon in the EMBA documents upload page.

While in our possession, your identification documents and academic transcripts are securely kept in a separate authenticated filestore. Data access is limited to a restricted list of administrators, and document viewing is logged.

If you wish, you may black out sensitive data in your scanned identification prior to upload, such as your social security number, passport number, and driver’s license number.

If you don't feel comfortable uploading an ID to Smartly, you may send us an official transcript in place of both the ID and unofficial transcript/academic record. Please have your institutions mail your transcripts to:
