Current and former Danforth Campus students must request transcripts online. Students who know their WUSTL Key can order through WebSTAC. Students who do not know their WUSTL Key, please scroll down to the option ‘Ordering Without A WUSTL Key’.
There is a $5 fee per transcript, payable online using a credit card or through Student Billing for current students (current students must be more than 30 days from graduation). We are unable to take any payment over the phone.
Transcript requests are generally processed and issued the next business day. On all printed transcript orders, the Office of the University Registrar will notify the student by email when the requested transcript has been processed. Students ordering electronic transcripts will be notified by eScrip-Safe.
Please note that the Office of the University Registrar does not accept transcripts from other institutions. Coursework that is transferring from other institutions needs to be sent directly to your school’s academic office.

The School of Medicine registrar accepts requests for transcripts and certification records for students and alumni of: Audiology and Communication Sciences, Clinical Investigation, Genetic Epidemiology, Health Administration, Nurse Anesthesia, Occupational Therapy, Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Physical Therapy, Psychiatric Epidemiology, School of Dentistry and School of Medicine.
Please note: Students who have a WUSTL Key but do not remember their login credentials may use the WUSTL Key and Password recovery features found on the WebSTAC Support page to avoid submitting the consent form.
Transcripts are sent using the United States Postal Service (USPS) First Class Mail, which does not provide a tracking number to monitor the status of the delivery.
These instructions are effective for orders beginning on October 28, 2019. Adjustments will be made to the online ordering system soon.

Degrees: Degrees awarded by Washington University will appear on your transcript with the conferral date as well as second majors, minors and certificates that have been completed. May degrees are posted on the official date of conferral. August and December degrees are posted retroactively, after the schools have certified degree eligibility and the Board of Trustees has approved the final degree list. Generally speaking, transcripts show August degrees in early October and December degrees in late January. Although August and December degrees are posted after the fact, the transcript will reflect the official conferral date. If necessary, students may contact their dean’s office to obtain official verification of degree or program completion before a degree appears on their transcript.
Coursework: Your transcript is one integral record and contains all of the Washington University coursework for which you registered or received credit. It contains semester-by-semester entries of courses, starting with the earliest semester and progressing to the most recent. A line and marker indication stating that there are “No entries below this line” will follow the last entry on your transcript.
Credit Hours and Grades: Your transcript will show the number of credit hours for each course and the final grade received. The reverse side of your transcript contains a “key” that provides information on grade interpretation and the grade-point average (GPA) scales WUSTL uses for a particular school or division.
Latin Honors: The Latin Honors of Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Cum Laude are displayed on the first page of your transcript with the degree earned.
Distinctions, Prizes and Awards: All other honors that have been noted on your academic record will appear at the end of your transcript, after your academic coursework.
Remarks: Additional information such as A.P. and transfer credits, and notations such as leaves of absence, also appear at the end of your transcript after academic coursework.
