Transcripts

Current and former Danforth Campus students must request transcripts online.  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 e Scrip-Safe.

Please note that we do 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.

Current and former students who need help with their WUSTL Key for WebSTAC access can utilize the WUSTL Key self-service tools for assistance.  Please note that if you attended prior to 1978, you will need to use the option for those without a WUSTL Key.  The student is not required to submit a signed consent form when a transcript order is placed through WebSTAC.  Students are encouraged to review their academic record at WebSTAC before requesting an official transcript, particularly when final grades are being posted; an unofficial transcript report is available in WebSTAC for this purpose.  Please contact the Help Desk at 314-935-5707 if you need further assistance with your WUSTL Key.
Former students who do not have a WUSTL Key order an official transcript online here.  PLEASE NOTE: placing a transcript order from this website requires the student to submit a signed consent form – refer to the online instructions when placing your order.  You may also track an order previously placed from this website (not from WebSTAC).
Current Washington University in St. Louis Medical School students and alumni with Danforth Campus coursework can order an official transcript online here.  Please make sure you are not logged into WebSTAC.
Transcript requests are generally processed and issued the next business day.  On all transcript orders, the Office of the University Registrar will notify the student by email when the requested transcript has been processed; please be sure to provide a current email address with your order.  When placing an order for transcripts, you can indicate whether you want to pick up your transcript in person from our office or have it sent directly to the recipient, in which case also be sure to include a complete postal address or indicate the electronic recipient when placing your order.

Students who need to request overseas transcripts from coursework taken abroad should follow the instructions provided on the Overseas Programs website.  Those documents are not maintained by the university registrar.
Your academic transcript is an official document that carries the institutional seal of Washington University in St. Louis and bears the signature of the university registrar.  It is printed on security safe paper, which when photocopied will reveal the word “copy” throughout.

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.
