Once completed, transcript orders can take two business days for processing. However, here are some things you can do to influence how quickly your transcript will reach its destination:
ORDER ONLINE - Create or log into your Parchment account to order your official transcript online. It is possible to mail us your transcript order with a check, but your order will take much longer to reach us.
SEND A PDF - If you started at WWU in Fall 1984 or after, you can reduce delivery time by ordering an official PDF transcript instead of a paper one. Your official PDF transcript comes with security encryption and the ability to check delivery status online.
FEDEX (temporarily unavailable) - When you order paper transcripts online, you can add FedEx service to your order for an additional fee. FedEx is not available for PO Box addresses. See the online order form for details.
If you ordered an official transcript online, log into your Parchment account and click on Orders. PDF and FedEx orders offer more detailed tracking information than standard hard-copy transcripts.
If you ordered in person or by mail, you can contact the Registrar's Office for a status update.
This is NOT recommended. Similar to a paper transcript that comes in a sealed envelope, a PDF transcript is only official to the individual or institution that opens it. Official PDF transcripts have security features that may prevent them from being uploaded.
The safest route is to order your PDF transcript to be sent directly to the final intended recipient.
Many institutions are registered to securely receive official PDF transcripts through Parchment, our e-transcript provider. If your recipient is not registered with Parchment, the order form may not show PDF transcripts as an ordering option for them.
However, if your recipient has given you a specific email address where they can accept official PDF transcripts, select "I'm sending to myself or another individual," then the "other individual" option on the delivery destination screen. This will allow you to enter your recipient’s email address directly into the order form.
You can choose to have your transcript sent after grades or degrees are awarded. These ordering options are usually enabled a couple weeks before the end of the quarter.
Due to the narrative format of Fairhaven evaluations, a cumulative GPA will not appear on the official transcript of a declared Fairhaven student.
Fairhaven students can order supplemental narrative evaluations through the Fairhaven website.
Log into your former student Web4U account and select Student, then Student Records, then Unofficial Transcript (Academic History).
Students who started attending WWU in Fall 1984 or after can access their unofficial transcripts through Web4U. If you attended WWU before Fall 1984 and require an unofficial transcript, please contact us at email@example.com.
For security reasons, the Registrar's Office does not email unofficial transcripts.
Though there isn’t a download button/link on the unofficial transcript page in Web4U, most internet browsers will allow you to save any webpage as a PDF.
- Chrome or Microsoft Edge: Go to Print, then change the printer destination to "Save as PDF".
- Other browsers on PC: Go to Print, then change the printer destination to "Microsoft Print to PDF".
- Safari on Mac: Go to File, then "Export as PDF".
Yes! All students with credits through WWU can order official transcripts. If you do not know your W#, please note that we may need to contact you for more information to ensure we can locate your student record.
