How to order an Official UW Transcript

Ordering Online

Available only to current and former students who attended after 1982

Ordering transcripts online is only available to currently registered and former students who attended after 1982. You may order official transcripts with this Order Official Transcript tool or through MyUW on the Academics tab in the box labeled Grades. All transcripts ordered online will be automatically mailed. If you would like to pick-up your transcript in person, please see the section Fill Out a Transcript Request Form in Person.

Transcripts are printed each business night (Monday-Friday excluding holidays). If you order a transcript before 6pm PST, your transcript will be printed and mailed the next business day and you will get one confirmation email. If the order is received after 6pm, the transcript will be printed and mailed within two business days. Transcripts ordered on a Friday or over the weekend will be processed the next working day. There is a $2 convenience fee each time you use the service.

To order your transcript online you will need a UW NetID. As a former student, you will have a UW NetID (unless you attended prior to 1982)and your UWNetID remains the same throughout your life.
