***Important notice: As we respond to the COVID-19 risk in our community, Whitman College staff will be working remotely. For this reason, all transcripts must be sent electronically using the National Student Clearinghouse transcript ordering service. Please email registrar@whitman.edu if you have any questions and thank you for your understanding.*** 

Types of Transcripts

Official
Transcripts describe the student's full Whitman academic record and are certified by the Registrar's Office to be complete and accurate. All official transcripts bear the school seal and are endorsed by the Registrar.

 Virtually every academic institution and many employers require an official transcript prior to admitting or hiring the student. In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, transcripts are released to a student or a third party only upon receipt of a formal request.

Unofficial 

In certain instances an employer or agency may not require an official transcript,and thus will permit the student to submit an unofficial document. Unofficial transcripts can be accessed on the student portal (mywhitman.edu) and are available only to current students or graduates (12 months out).


How do I order a transcript?

Please note that financial obligations to the college MUST be satisfied before we can release a transcript. If you have any questions about your account, feel free to e-mail stuacct@whitman.edu.

Special ordering instructions

The following options are available when ordering transcripts;  1) send transcript at this time, or 2) send transcript after grades for this term are recorded.

Send transcript at this time

Transcript requests are processed immediatley after setting up your account on the National Student Clearinghouse. Any classes that you are currently taking will not appear on the transcript.

Send transcript after grades for this term are recorded

You can request that a transcript be sent once grades for the current term have been recorded. Transcripts are usually available three weeks after the end of the semester.

Whitman College has agreed to work with SCRIP-SAFE International to provide the option of delivering academic transcripts electronically.  This partnership allows Whitman to provide official transcripts either to network recipients or to recipients outside the network (i.e., “OneTime” service) to any third party anywhere in the world at any time.  This additional service provides the fastest delivery time, is totally secure, and provides you and Whitman with a means of tracking delivery and receipt of the e-transcript.

●  Network Delivery:  Many colleges, universities and other agencies are members of this secure network and actively receive electronic transcripts.   Check the list of network recipients to determine if your intended destination is a network member:

http://www.scrip-safe.com/products/electronic-transcripts/network-members.aspx

▪  Your transcript is never delivered by email.  Instead the recipient is notified by email that your transcript is available for retrieval at the specific “one-time” URL identified in the email. 

▪  Ask the receiver to “white list” @escrip-safe.com (so that your request is not blocked by a spam filter).
