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.

Unofficial transcripts are available to students on MySLC > Student menu > Transcripts > Unofficial Transcript.

If you are currently enrolled and your request is marked "hold for final grades" or “hold for degree,” your transcript is not sent until grades are issued or degree is 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. Provisional grades in yearlong classes may be requested only after the first semester.

Ordering Transcripts Online

Sarah Lawrence College uses the National Student Clearinghouse for transcript request and electronic delivery. Online transcript requests submitted on weekends or while the College is closed for holidays are processed in the order received when the College re-opens. You can order transcripts and pay the fee with any major credit card, charged only after your transcript has been sent.

To order official transcripts online:

  • Login in to the National Student Clearinghouse secure site.
  • Place your order including delivery options and fees. You can order as many transcripts as you like in a single session.
  • To ensure confidentiality and to comply with federal regulations, your signed authorization is required to issue transcripts. For your convenience, the Clearinghouse’s online ordering service provides options for authorization.
  • Delivery options for online orders include mail, FedEx, electronic exchange (with participating schools), and electronic pdf. Electronic delivery options are available with online orders only.
  • Order updates are emailed to you directly from the Clearinghouse. You can also track your order online.
  • If you need help or have questions about the Clearinghouse’s transcript ordering service, you may contact them by email at or phone: (703) 742-7791.
