Official Transcripts - Frequently Asked Questions

How do I request an Official Transcript?
If you are a current Dartmouth A&S Undergraduate, you can order your Official Transcript online by logging in to BannerStudent. For more information, please see our Transcript Ordering Guide.

If you are a Dartmouth A&S Undergraduate Alumna or Alumnus, you can order your Official Transcript online by logging in to the Transcript Request page here. For more information, please see our Transcript Ordering Guide.

Is there a charge for ordering Official Transcripts?
Students may order Official Transcripts without paying any additional charge. Students may request expedited delivery via UPS where the student is responsible for the UPS delivery charge.

What is the processing and delivery time for Official Transcripts?
Requests for Official eTranscripts are processed and delivered within one business day of the order being placed. The processing time for Official paper Transcripts is usually 2 business days except during busy periods such as the start and end of terms. Then it may take up to 5 business days.

What is an eTranscript and how does it work?
An electronic Transcript or "eTranscript" is a certified PDF of your Official Transcript. Dartmouth has partnered with Avow by Parchment to securely order and process your Transcript request. Recipients of the Official eTranscript receive an email with instructions on how to retrieve the document from our secure website. Official eTranscripts can be sent to any valid email address.

How can I ensure recipients that an eTranscript is authentic?
Dartmouth's Official eTranscript is a certified PDF that displays a blue ribbon on the notification bar across the top of Adobe Reader, ensuring the recipient that the digital signature is authentic and the contents of the eTranscript have not been altered. Recipients of Dartmouth's Official eTranscript must use Adobe Reader to view the Transcript. Learn more.

How do I know whether or not the receiver will accept an eTranscript?
Almost all major educational institutions accept eTranscripts. AMCAS and LSAC do not currently accept them. If you experience difficulty with your recipient over the eTranscript, please contact our office.

Why does my eTranscript say VOID when I print it?
An eTranscript is considered Official in PDF format only. If printed, the word "VOID" will appear repeatedly to indicate that the paper copy is not an Official institutional document.

What is the fastest (and lowest cost) way of delivering my Official Transcript?
Official eTranscript requests are processed within one business day of the order being placed and are the fastest way to deliver your transcript. 

Is it possible to request expedited delivery of my Official Transcript in paper format?
If you require expedited delivery, you must provide us with a prepaid air bill/shipping label by creating a shipment on the UPS website. You will be responsible for any shipping and handling fees associated with UPS delivery.

I have a Transcript hold on my record. Can I request my Official Transcript?
If you have a hold that prevents the release of your Official Transcript, you will not be able to place a request until the hold is cleared. The Transcript Request page in BannerStudent will inform you of any holds on your record, and identify the Office who placed the hold.

Can I access an Unofficial copy of my Transcript?
Current students may access their unofficial Transcripts using the "Academic Transcript – Unofficial" link in BannerStudent
