• How to Send & Transfer College Transcripts

    Typically, you can find instructions for ordering transcripts by visiting the registrar’s page of your previous college’s website. It’s important to get this process started as soon as possible since processing times vary by college.

    Transcript Requirements

    • You must order official transcripts from all colleges you've previously attended (including trade schools), regardless of the number or type of credits earned.
      • Example: John Doe took one course at a community college before transferring to the four-year college where he received his degree. He still needs to order both transcripts, even if that one course appears on his final degree transcript.
      • If you don’t list all colleges on your application and they appear on transcripts from other schools, your application will not be reviewed until you have submitted the remaining transcripts.
    • We prefer electronic transcripts, but also accept mailed paper transcripts
    • Complete and forward this Transcript Request Form to your previous institutions to get the process started.

    Electronic Transcripts

    • Colleges can email transcripts via a password secured link or website to us at applyDUonline@drexel.edu.
    • Transcripts must be sent from a verified email address at the issuing college (not a personal account), include both the front and back sides of the transcript, specifically state "Official Transcript," and contain the registrar signature.

    Mailed Paper Transcripts

    • Transcripts must arrive in university-sealed envelopes. If one is mailed to you, you may forward it to us as long as the envelope remains unopened.
    • We can not accept faxed or photocopied transcripts.
