Ordering a Transcript

To provide the best service possible and to maintain security of academic records, electronic and paper Official Transcripts can be ordered online through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), an authorized agent of Johns Hopkins.

  • Paper transcripts will be mailed via U.S. regular mail in a secure, sealed envelope.
  • Electronic transcripts will be sent through the NSC (a secure digital alternative to the traditional paper transcript) in PDF format via email.
  • Order updates will be emailed to you, or you can check your order status on the NSC website
  • NSC charges a service fee per transcript delivery. Additional service fees are applied for special delivery requests (see below).
    • Any major credit card may be used to pay fees.
    • Your card will only be charged after your transcript has been sent.

Important: Your signed consent is required to fulfill your transcript order. Follow the National Student Clearinghouse directions to submit your consent form.

Note: Electronic transcripts sent to the recipient are considered official upon delivery, but become unofficial if passed on to another recipient or printed. 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.
