Requesting a Transcript
The Office of the Registrar produces official, hard-copy transcripts, which can be ordered online, via the National Student Clearinghouse.
Ordering online through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC)
HGSE students and alumni may take advantage of the services of the National Student Clearinghouse, which offers a fast, simple and secure way to order copies of transcripts via the web. Ordering transcripts this way is in full compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), which protects the privacy of students' educational records. Orders may be placed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and may be charged to any major credit card.
For transcripts sent to the same address, a fee collected by the NSC will be assessed as follows:
- NSC online processing fee: $2.25
(e.g. 5 transcripts would cost $2.25)
For transcripts sent to different addresses, a fee collected will be assessed as follows:
- NSC online processing fee: $2.25 per address
(e.g. 5 transcripts to 5 different addresses would cost $11.25)
To order a transcript, login to the Clearinghouse secure site.
