Transcript Requests

Transcripts can not be requested by or released to anyone outside the University without the written permission of the student.  Official transcripts bear the seal of the University and the signature of the Registrar and are mailed directly to the recipient by the University.  Transcripts mailed to a student are stamped "Issued to Student." In most cases, recipients want the transcript sent directly to them from Wayne State University.

The first 10 transcripts ordered each year are free.  For each additional transcript, there is a $5.00 fee.  Once received, transcript requests are typically processed and sent out the next business day.
