Transcripts

Official transcripts must be ordered online.  The George Washington University has contracted with Credentials Solutions to manage all online orders.

Important notes about ordering transcripts:

  • Only complete records of all coursework at GW will be provided
  • No transcripts (either official nor unofficial) will be issued to students who have outstanding financial obligations to the university, including library and parking fees.

Current students and alumni can request official transcripts directly through GWeb or through the TranscriptsPlus website. Students can select to have the official transcript sent via secure PDF, regular mail, or FedEx.  Transcripts can be ordered online for pick-up in person in Colonial Central. Unofficial transcripts can only be requested in person at Colonial Central.

Ordering Instructions

Transcripts may be requested through GWeb or through the TranscriptsPlus order form. Third-party PDF transcripts cannot be downloaded between the hours of 4-5:30 am (EST/EDT) daily. TranscriptsPlus will be unavailable on the second Sunday of each month for maintenance from 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. (EST/EDT). 

After submitting the request and payment, you will receive emails from GW’s authorized vendor, Credentials Solutions. You will receive email confirmations of the order, its status, and any issues that may need your attention.

Electronic transcripts are securely delivered to the recipient by email as a secure PDF. Students can also request a transcript to be held until final semester grades are posted or until their degree is awarded. The transition to electronic transcripts will make it easier to order, track and receive your GW transcript. Available 24-hours-a-day, electronic transcripts guarantee a speedy and secure process. The use of electronic transcripts also promotes an environmentally friendly, paperless process.

Official transcripts may be requested online for pick-up in the Office of the Registrar at Colonial Central, on the Ground Floor of the Marvin Center at 800 21st St NW. Current students and alumni should follow the instructions listed above to request a transcript, selecting the option to pick-up in person. If you would like to authorize someone to pick up your transcript on your behalf, you can provide the third party’s name as part of the "Pick-Up Information" section of the order form. Transcripts ordered online for in-office pickup will be stamped as issued to the student.

A valid GW or government-issued photo identification is required when picking up a request.

Unofficial transcripts can be requested in-person at the Office of the Registrar at Colonial Central. A maximum of five in-person unofficial transcripts will be provided per day. There is no cost for unofficial transcripts.
