A transcript is a record of student achievement at the University of Washington and classes taken at any UW campus will appear on one transcript. The University of Washington has partnered with Parchment to accept and process online orders for official transcripts for all three UW campuses. Students, former students, and alumni are able to order official transcripts 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. Official transcripts can be sent electronically or mailed in hard-copy format.Official transcripts are not available for in-person pickup.

Identity Verification & UW NetID
Parchment requires student identity verification and transcript order authorization in order to comply with FERPA regulations. Students may authenticate their identity by being logged in with their UW NetID which allows for quicker verification by Parchment. However, a UW NetID is not required to place a transcript order. Students will be asked to provide personal identification markers that Parchment will use to match with UW student identity records.
Official transcripts display the same name that is associated with your student record in the University’s student database. Please keep this in mind when entering your information on the ordering screen and be sure to include any previous names if you have changed your name since attending UW. Be advised that if you have a different name on file with the Alumni Association or if you are a current or previous employee, the name that displays on your MyUW and the transcript ordering page may be may be different than what is in the student database. The same name that appears on your unofficial transcript on MyUW is what will appear on an official transcript.
If you wish to update your information in our student database in order to have a different name appear on your official transcripts, please review information on student record name change.
UW NetID recovery requires a UW Student Number (UWID) and Private Access Code (PAC). Please contact Office of the University Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with forgotten student numbers or PACs.
Records for students who attended the University of Washington prior to 1983 may be on microfilm. And thanks to the enhancements of Parchment these students may now request and receive electronic transcripts. While placing a transcript order, please provide as much information as possible to assist in locating records, such as:
Approximate dates of attendance
Other names (e.g., maiden, married, name changes)
If you attended prior to 1983 and are seeking an unofficial transcript, these documents cannot be obtained via Parchment and cannot be emailed. Please contact email@example.com for assistance with requesting your unofficial transcripts.
Special Service Requests
Transcript Order Holds
Students may request a transcript order be held until grades or degrees have posted. However, students are encouraged to check their unofficial transcript prior to placing an order with Parchment to:
Verify grades have posted from recent quarter(s)
Verify a degree has been awarded and its conferral date
Verify grade changes have been posted
The Office of the Registrar will not authorize a reprint or reorder, for free, of official transcripts because of a failure to do so.
Transcript Matching Forms
Students sending their transcripts to application services such as AMCAS, LSAC, NCARB, SOPHAS, AACOMAS or other professional certification, examination, and licensing agencies will be able to provide any application service ID or upload required forms while ordering through Parchment. Parchment provides a list of established agencies to select from within the order form.
If you attended the University of Washington as both an Undergraduate and a Graduate/Professional level student, you can choose to order an official transcript of only your Graduate/Professional record. Do not place an order for a Graduate/Professional Record transcript if you have only attended as an Undergraduate or Non-Matriculated student.
