Transcripts

Current students and alumni may now order electronic transcripts in pdf format.

See Electronic Transcript Information for Students and Alumni for more information. Information about paper transcripts follows below.

Only official transcripts are available through the University Registrar. Each transcript has the signature of the Registrar and Stanford University seal. If multiple transcripts are requested to a single address, they are packaged together in one envelope. Envelopes are not signed or sealed (stamped) across the flap. If you require forms attached to the transcript or separately packaged transcripts, see the section on Special Processing below.

  • All paper transcripts are mailed
  • We do not fax transcripts (faxed transcripts are not official and the University cannot ensure confidentiality for any faxed documents)
