Requesting a Transcript
** TEMPORARY CHANGES TO TRANSCRIPT REQUEST POLICY DUE TO PANDEMIC **
Because of disruptions caused by the COVID-19 situation, the ONLY way to obtain an Olin transcript is to order an ELECTRONIC TRANSCRIPT through the NATIONAL STUDENT CLEARINGHOUSE.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Official student transcripts are available through the Registrar’s Office. Transcripts represent all work within the Olin Learning Continuum. They contain confidential information and cannot be released without the consent of the student. The information contained on the transcript is detailed within the Grading at Olin page.
Unofficial Transcripts can be obtained via the portal. If you are an alum and do not recall your credentials, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
Official transcripts may be requested either directly from the Registrar’s Office or from the National Student Clearinghouse.
Registrar’s Office – paper copies only; no charge
Written permission may take the form of a SIGNED request form or letter; current Olin students may send an email from an Olin assigned account (student-at-olin.edu). Former Olin students can request transcripts by emailing a scanned copy of the request form, provided it has an actual (not digital) signature, or they may send requests by USPS or fax.

National Student Clearinghouse – fee-based for electronic or paper copies
Olin College partners with the National Student Clearinghouse for transcript order tracking and pdf/electronic delivery of transcripts. There is a modest cost to the student for this service. When using the ordering service, you will be able to receive updates as your request moves through the various stages of processing, including a notification when the transcript is opened at its destination. Note: access to the electronic document expires after 30 days, so the recipient must open and save it during that window.
If you have a student portal or alumni portal log-in, it is best to authenticate to the service via MyStAR. Otherwise, you may go directly to The National Student Clearinghouse and follow the steps for transcript ordering. The National Student Clearinghouse is a trusted source of enrollment and transcript services for institutions of higher education.
