Grades: Transcript Requests
Failure to follow ordering instructions will result in your order being CANCELLED! NO PAPER FORMS ARE ACCEPTED.
Reminder to current students:
- ALL CURRENT STUDENTS MUST order via myWCU.
- Check your myWCU account for any holds on your record. You will not be able to request a transcript if you have any outstanding holds on your account.
- If You Are Waiting for Current Grades to Post: Wait for your grades to appear on your record! Check for your grades by clicking on the Unofficial Transcript link in your myWCU account. Final grades are typically posted to transcripts the Thursday afternoon following the week of final exams. Fall 2016 grades will be posted at noon on Thursday, December 22. Be sure to check your Unofficial Transcript before placing your order!
- If You Are Graduating: Wait for your degree to be awarded! Click on the Unofficial Transcript link in your myWCU account. Please note that the "degree awarded" information is displayed on the last page of the unofficial transcript. Submit your transcript request once the degree displays as awarded.
- Unofficial Transcripts in myWCU can be used for informational purposes but do not include the student's name. You can find the Unofficial Transcript link by logging into myWCU.
General Guidelines for Ordering a Transcript
A transcript is a listing of all the courses you have taken, your grades, major, and the date of your graduation, if applicable. You will need an official transcript to apply to another college, university, or if your employer wants verification that you graduated.
- In myWCU you may select a paper transcript or an E-Transcript (certified PDF), which can be emailed. The cost is $7.00 per transcript.
- Transcripts requested to be held for in-office pick-up that are not retrieved within 30 days will be destroyed.
- DO NOT order an E-Transcript if you need to send an ATTACHED DOCUMENT/FORM to an organization (DICAS, CASPA, LSAC, PHARMCAS) with your transcript. For more information, please see Attaching a Form to Your Paper Transcript below.
- Current term In-Progress courses will not display on a West Chester University transcript. Only courses that have been graded will display.
Attaching a Form to Your Paper Transcript
- Submit the completed form for the organization to the Transcript Clerk.
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and basic info to alert the transcript clerk to attach the form when the paper transcript is processed/mailed.
- NOTE: Please wait 24 HOURS after completing Step 2 before you complete this step. Submit your paper transcript request online AFTER you have submitted the completed form for the organization to the Registrar's office (Step 1) and emailed email@example.com (Step 2).
NOTE: Students are responsible for sending appropriate attached documents before ordering their transcripts. If transcripts are not accepted by third party organizations because students failed to send along attached documents, the Registrar's Office is not responsible.
