Transcript Requests

We partner with Parchment, a digital credentials service, as our trusted agent for processing all transcript requests and delivering electronic and paper academic transcripts. Please note that The College of Wooster can no longer issue unofficial transcripts.

Our process provides students and alums with the quality you expect:

  • Fast delivery time
  • Multiple delivery options
  • A secure network
  • Easy tracking of delivery and receipt of your order

Order a Transcript

  • In order to request a transcript, you will need to create an account with Parchment. This will allow you to securely order you transcript and track your orders. The more information provided, the easier it will be to find you in our system and locate your record. Incomplete information could cause a delay in processing.
  • You have the option to have your transcript ‘held’ in our system until grades are posted at the end of the current semester. If you select this option our office will hold your order until all requested information is received. Should you need to edit the order, you will need to request our office to cancel the current order and resubmit a new one. Graduates and former students should always select ‘Send Now’.

  • Please note that a maximum of 5 attachments can be uploaded with each transcript request (not to exceed 5 pages total). All attachments must be in PDF, JPG, GIF, TIF, or PNG format. The attachments
  • Payment is due when the transcript order is placed. Therefore, if the order needs to be cancelled, you will need to request a refund from Parchment Customer Service. When the order is cancelled, you will be notified and your order number will be included, so that you can start the refund request.
