Transcripts & Enrollment Certifications
REQUESTING A TRANSCRIPT
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. For more specific information about them, please visit their 'about us' page: The National Student Clearinghouse.
The National Student Clearinghouse is our authorized agent for providing degree and enrollment verifications. If you are an employer or background screening firm requesting this information please visit www.degreeverify.org.

National Student Clearinghouse (for current or former students)
The Clearinghouse can provide real-time (no waiting for a letter from the Registrar’s Office) enrollment certifications based on your enrollment at Olin College. There is no cost. Note: Olin submits enrollment data three times per semester. The first submission is typically one week after the last day to add. If you need an enrollment certificate for a current semester during the first 3 weeks of a semester, you should email the Registrar’s Office. Why would you need an enrollment certification or verification? Common reasons for needing enrollment certifications or verifications are: scholarships, car insurance, health insurance, student discounts, etc. Data included on a form: Name, School, Dates of Attendance, Enrollment Status (full-time, half-time, etc), Expected or Actual Graduation Date.
It is best to authenticate to the service via the portal, by clicking on Clearinghouse Self Service Access. (If you are an alum and do not recall your credentials, please contact email@example.com .)
