Transcript Request Options:
Current and former students can choose one of the following options to request their transcript:
1. Student Centre: Under the "Other Academics" left hand menu, select "Transcript: Request Official" from the drop-down menu. To view the status of your request, click the "View a Transcript That You Previously Requested" button on the "Request Official Transcript" page. Allow three to five business days for processing, plus mailing time.
You'll receive an email notification once your transcript has been processed. Please ensure that your Student Centre information is up-to-date. If you cannot access the Student Centre, please visit the IT eID Support page for further assistance.
2. Email/Mail/Fax: Complete the Transcript Request Form and submit it through one of the methods below:
Enrolment Services, MB 117
2500 University Drive N.W.

3. In-person: Bring your photo ID to Enrolment Services during regular business hours and we'll print your transcripts immediately.
You can also designate a third party to request your transcript in-person from Enrolment Services, a Third Party Authorization form must be completed by the student, approving the release of the transcript. When the third party comes in-person to Enrolment Services with the letter of authorization they will be asked for ID, which will be confirmed against the letter of authorization. Your signature will then be verified with what is on file before the transcript is released.
NOTE: Transcripts cannot be requested over the phone.
