Ordering a Transcript

To provide the best service possible and to maintain security of academic records, transcripts may be ordered in the following ways:

Electronic Transcripts

Official Electronic Transcripts must be ordered online through the National Student Clearinghouse.

  • Your transcript will be sent securely through the NSC (a secure electronic alternative to the traditional paper transcript) in PDF format via email.
  • NSC charges a $4 service fee per electronic transcript delivery. Any major credit card may be used.
  • Order updates will be emailed to you, or you can check your order status on the NSC website.
    • IMPORTANT: Your signed consent is required to fulfill your transcript order. Follow the NSC directions to submit your electronic signature.

Note: Electronic transcripts sent to the recipient are considered official upon delivery, but become unofficial if passed on to another recipient. The retrieval link will expire after 30 days.

AMCAS and LSAC Applicants: The AAMC’s American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®) and the Law School Admission Council now accept electronic transcripts from approved senders. Johns Hopkins University is an approved sender.
