Northwestern partners with Credentials, LLC to offer transcript ordering online.
Current and recent students may request transcripts via theROCK > Student Academics > Traditional Undergraduate/Dual Enrollment/Adult & Graduate Studies portlet > Transcript Request. Ordering through theROCK allows automatic authorization of the order and waives the transcript charge (a small online-order vendor fee is still incurred).
Alumni and former students without access to theROCK can request transcripts using the direct link to TranscriptsPlus®.
- Due to Registrar's Office staff working remotely during the COVID-19 crisis, processing of paper transcripts will be delayed. If you order a paper transcript, please allow five to seven calendar days for the transcript to be printed, plus standard mailing time. Hold-for-pick-up and FedEx delivery options are unavailable until further notice. Electronic transcripts will be processed as normal (see below).
- Electronic PDF transcripts are processed 24/7 based on Credentials hours of operations. Please allow 1 business day for order completion.
- All financial obligations to the institution must be resolved before a transcript can be sent.
- You will need to use a major credit card when placing your order online; full pricing and payment details are listed on the TranscriptsPlus home page.
- Most students will be able to order either a secure electronic transcript or a paper transcript. An electronic transcript is considered official only for the initial recipient. It is your responsibility to ensure you select a delivery method that is accepted by your recipient.
- If your name has changed since your Northwestern attendance and it is important to you that your current name is reflected on your transcript, it is your responsibility to contact the Registrar's Office to double-check or correct your name in our records prior to placing your transcript order.
Other Transcript Requests
Student transcripts from previously attended institutions that were provided to Northwestern become the property of Northwestern. Northwestern does not provide copies of transcripts from other institutions that are part of a Northwestern student’s education record. In order to obtain accurate, up-to-date information and ensure that no protocol of the issuing institution is circumvented, a student must contact the originating institution for a copy of that institution’s transcript.
