Transcripts are the primary credential used by graduate schools and many employers when verifying that a student is making progress or that a graduate has completed a degree at Washington College. The Registrar’s Office maintains the integrity of each student’s academic record, and also tightly controls who may access these records. By federal law, transcripts cannot be released to anyone without prior written authorization from the student. Telephone requests can not be honored.

Order Transcripts In Person
This option is only available for transcripts that will be picked up in person, or if the transcript needs to be sent to another office on campus.
Visit the Registrar’s Office in the basement of Bunting Hall to complete a Transcript Request Form. Transcripts ordered in person will be available for pickup by 4:00 PM the following business day.
This option is only available to students and alumni who have access to the Student Planning module within Self Service.
Unofficial transcripts carry neither the Registrar’s signature nor the College seal and are not official College documents. They are printed on plain paper. A summary of the academic transcript can be printed directly by the student through Student Planning by clicking on the Unofficial Transcript link from the Student Planning drop down menu.
Release of Unofficial Transcript to Faculty Members for Letters of Recommendation
Students or alumni who wish to release their unofficial transcript to a Washington College faculty member for purposes of writing a letter of recommendation may either (a) download a copy from Self Service and send it directly to the faculty member or (b) complete the Transcript Release Form (for Letters of Recommendation) and submit it to the Registrar’s Office.
Please note: If the Washington College Business Office, or another administrative office, has placed a “hold” on your student record, you must settle the account before the Registrar’s Office will produce your official transcript.
