Requesting Transcripts

The Gustavus Adolphus College transcript is the official and historical record of a student’s enrollment at Gustavus. The official transcript is signed by the Registrar and bears the official seal of the College. Student records are protected by FERPA, the privacy act. You are the only one who may request your own transcript.

The Office of the Registrar at Gustavus Adolphus College is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Normally, transcript requests are processed within three business days. Exceptions include, the opening week of each semester, one week before and after graduation, and between Christmas and New Year's when the College is closed.

No transcripts will be issued to current students once the final grading period begins until all final grades for all students have been recorded. This is to ensure that no incomplete records are released. There are no exceptions. Current students may request that a transcript be held until final grades for a term are recorded. Please plan accordingly.

Please visit the Student Account website for the Transcript Hold Policy if you have a Student Account hold. 

Transcripts will not be sent via fax or e-mail.

Current students may view their unofficial transcripts via MyGustavus. We do not issue unofficial transcripts to former students. Please follow the directions below to request an offical transcript.

Electronic Transcript Requests

Gustavus offers an electronic (secure, certified PDF) transcript delivery option via Parchment. This service is available to students whose first semester of attendance at Gustavus was after September 1, 1985.

  • The site will walk you through placing your transcript order
  • You can order as many transcripts, to be sent to as many destinations as you like in a single session
  • Supplemental forms may be uploaded to be included with your transcript order
  • Order updates will be sent to you via email
  • You can check the status of your order online
  • You will be assessed a $2.80 service fee and your credit card will only be charged after your order has been completed

If you have a hold on your transcript, you will not be able to submit an order until all holds have been resolved.

** If you are requesting a transcript with final grades and/or degree awarded, you should verify all grades have been posted to your academic record, via MyGustavus, BEFORE submitting a request for an electronic transcript. **
