An official transcript, which contains the signature of the University Registrar and the Wake Forest University seal, is a student’s academic record. It contains all coursework taken while enrolled at Wake Forest University.
Only the record holder can authorize/request an official transcript. Please note that for a student who has taken courses and/or has degrees at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, an official Wake Forest University transcript will include ALL levels of coursework.
Note: Only official transcripts are issued through the university. Current students can view their unofficial transcripts via WIN.
The following types of official transcripts are provided:
When placing your orders online, you can select a pdf format of your official transcript. Many recipients now accept “paperless” official transcripts. Before placing your order, ask the recipient whether an electronic transcript (e-transcript) is acceptable and, if so, the email address you should use for delivery. Once you have placed your online order, the recipient is notified by email that he or she can retrieve a certified pdf from our transcript ordering service.
These e-transcripts are official documents and can be validated through a third party vendor, Parchment, because they have been digitally signed and certified by Wake Forest.
Wake Forest provides printed official transcripts through the Office of the University Registrar. Paper transcripts are mailed using standard delivery through the U.S. Postal Service.
Note: Standard mailing through the U.S. Postal Service cost $2.75 per transcript. You may opt for express shipping through FedEx when ordering online at an additional cost of $18.00 for domestic destinations and $25.00 for international destinations.
Wake Forest provides pick-up printed official transcripts through the Office of the University Registrar, 110 Reynolda Hall, the next business day after 2:30pm. Please provide a photo ID when picking up your transcript.
Note: Picking up a transcript cost $2.75 per transcript.
Note: Final transcript for graduating seniors will not be available until a few days after commencement. We recommend choosing “hold for degree” so that your transcript will be complete.
