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. Current students may request that a transcript be held until final grades for a term are recorded. Please plan accordingly.

Please contact the Student Accounts office at 507-933-7502 if you have a Student Account hold. 

Transcripts cannot be ordered over the phone and are not sent via fax. Electronic transcripts will be delivered via email through the National Student Clearinghouse

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 official transcript.
