Ordering Official Transcripts

Lewis University Transcripts

Federal regulation requires a signature for the release of a transcript. All Lewis University transcripts are official, and the cost is $5.00 for one transcript. Additional transcripts ordered at the same time are $2.00 each.

You have several options for requesting your official transcript:

  1. Effective August 2nd, 2024, the Office of the Registrar will be implementing changes to our transcript ordering process.

    As of August 2nd, students will no longer be able to order a transcript for pick up. If a transcript is needed, students will be able to order a transcript for electronic or mail delivery. All mail orders will be mailed directly through Parchment beginning August 2nd. Students electing to mail transcripts will incur mailing fees which are outlined below:
    • For orders mailed to a US address, the additional fee is $2.75
    • For orders mailed internationally, the additional fee is $5.75
    • For FedEx orders within the US, the additional fee is $33
    • For FedEx orders for international delivery, the additional fee is $60

    The above mailing fee options are added to the overall cost of the transcript ($5 per transcript) and are not the final cost paid by the student.

    Students are strongly encouraged to send transcripts electronically whenever possible. The Office of the Registrar will continue to ask students to place orders using Parchment. In person and walk in requests are not accepted.

    To place your order visit: Parchment Ordering Site. If you have any issues with ordering your transcript, creating an account or logging into the online transcript service, please contact Parchment’s live-chat feature for assistance. Normal processing time for transcript orders is three to five business days. During peak periods processing time for transcripts can take five to seven business days. Please allow additional time for mail service. Please contact the Office of the Registrar at registrar@lewisu.edu if you have any additional questions.

  2. Students may also request transcripts by mail. The signed letter must include the following information:
    • Student's name.
    • The name under which student attended.
    • Student's social security number or ID number.
    • Dates of attendance.
    • If student is a graduate, date(s) of graduation.
    • Where transcripts are to be sent.
    • Student's return address, daytime telephone number, signature.
    • A check or money order made payable to Lewis University ($5.00 per transcript, $2.00 per each additional transcript ordered at the same time).
