How to Request a Transcript

Official transcripts bear the College seal and the Registrar’s signature. Transcripts issued to the student or former student are stamped "Issued to Student" and enclosed in a sealed envelope. If you are forwarding them to another party (e.g. another college or university, potential employer, etc.) where an official transcript is needed, you should not open the envelope.

Sarah Lawrence College cannot provide you with copies of transcripts from other schools you have attended. If such transcripts are needed, please contact those schools directly.

We do not issue unofficial transcripts, which are available to students with MySLC accounts through the "My Transcript" link.

If you are currently enrolled and your request is marked "hold for final grades" or “hold for degree,” we will hold your request until grades or degree are posted, or until you notify us otherwise. If you are currently enrolled in yearlong classes and wish to include provisional grades with your transcript, you may ask your teachers to submit them through MySLC.

The fee for transcripts, whether ordered online, by mail, or in person is $8.50 per copy.  Additional charges may apply for expedited or electronic delivery.  (Electronic delivery options are available only with online orders -- see below).

Please note that SLC does NOT send transcripts through the Common App's College Report.  This must  should be downloaded, printed, and directed to the Dean of Studies Office.
