Transcripts and Records
GRADES AND TRANSCRIPTS
Once grades have been submitted by instructors, students have two ways to access their official grade reports.
The first is via the SIS system, where reports are available as soon as they are submitted to the system. Students may also request an official grade report by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate the semester for which you are requesting grades, and the report will be mailed to the home address we have on file. This report is not available by telephone or personal inquiry.
Official Electronic Transcript Request:
Electronic transcripts can be ordered through the National Student Clearinghouse. This is a secure electronic alternative to the traditional paper transcript that will be delivered in a PDF format via email. The fee for this service is $3.25 per request. Note: Effective September 30, 2019, the transcript processing fee will increase 25¢ per recipient. To order online, visit the Clearinghouse’s website, where you will be walked through your options for ordering an electronic transcript. Order updates will be emailed to you and you can also check the status or history of your orders online via the Clearinghouse.
The electronic (PDF) delivery option is available under the “Delivery Method.” This option allows you to send a single secure electronic transcript to a 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.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This option is available for students who attended after December 1999 and is only available via online ordering. Electronic transcripts sent to a recipient other than the student/graduate are considered OFFICIAL upon delivery, but become UNOFFICIAL if passed on to another recipient.
Official Paper Transcript Request:
Transcripts can be ordered either online through the National Student Clearinghouse or through the SOE’s Registrar’s office.
To order online, visit the Clearinghouse’s website, where you will be walked through your options for ordering up to five transcripts per online session.
Students can order through the SOE in person or by mail. A maximum of five transcripts are available in person or by mail, with a $5 fee per additional transcript after that. To order, print and fill out a Transcript Request form. These can be dropped off at any campus center for processing, with same-day service available at the Columbia Center between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. for a fee of $10. Note: FedEx delivery is NOT available to P.O. Boxes or P.O. Zip Codes
