West Chester University now offers online ordering of official transcripts. You may select a paper transcript or an E-Transcript (certified PDF) which can be emailed.

The cost is the same whether paper or E-Transcript, $7.00 per transcript.

How to Order

Current students and those who have attended since 1985:
You must login to your myWCU account to order your transcript. Once you have logged into your myWCU account, simply click on the link "Order Official Transcript".

If you are a former student, you may need to reactivate your account with the WCU Help desk so you can login to myWCU. Please see the "Need Help Logging Into myWCU?" section at the bottom of this page.

Students who attended WCU prior to 1985:
Ordering online is not an option for you since your record is archived. You may use the Transcript Request Form to submit your order.

Please note the following:

  • You will not be able to request a transcript if you have any outstanding holds on your account.
  • Recent Degree Awarded? Click on the "Unofficial Transcript" link on your myWCU account. Please note that the “degree awarded” information is displayed on the last page of the unofficial transcript. Submit your transcript request once the degree displays as awarded.
  • Recent Semester Grades Posted? Final grades are posted to transcripts the Thursday afternoon following the semester final exam week. Please check the Academic Calendar and Final Exam schedule for dates. You should request the transcript no earlier than the Thursday afternoon following final exams.
  • Current term "In-Progress" courses will not display on a West Chester University transcript. Only courses that have been graded will display.
  • Transcripts requested to be held for in-office pick-up that are not retrieved within 30 days will be destroyed.

Do NOT order an E-transcript if you need to send an attached document/form to the organization with your transcript. Forms can only be attached to a paper transcript.

If you need to have a specific form mailed with your PAPER transcript, please see the steps below: (Examples of some organizations that require an additional form: DICAS, CASPA, LSAC, PHARMCAS.)

  1. Student submits the completed form to the Transcript Clerk. (Form may be faxed to 610-436-2370 ATTN: Transcript Clerk or emailed to
  2. Student should email with their name and basic info to alert the transcript clerk to attach the form when the paper transcript is processed/mailed. Wait 24 hours before you move to Step 3!
  3. Student then submits their paper transcript request online AFTER they have submitted the completed form to the Registrar's office and emailed

Note: Students are responsible for sending appropriate attached documents before ordering their transcripts. If transcripts are not accepted by third party organizations because students failed to send along attached documents, the Registrar's Office is not responsible.
