Academic Transcript Requests

Official student records, including transcripts, are privileged, confidential information and are not open to public inspection or released to a third party without the student’s written consent. Therefore, transcripts must be requested in writing by the student or the student’s authorized legal representative.

Walsh has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse (www.studentclearinghouse.org) to offer an online option for ordering and receiving official transcripts. Transcripts ordered online can be delivered by email, U. S. Mail, or held for pickup at the Troy location. The processing fee for an electronic PDF version of official Walsh transcripts is $5.00. This charge is paid directly to the National Student Clearinghouse, not to Walsh.

Walsh continues to produce and mail paper transcripts free of charge. Requests will be processed within 24-48 business hours. A Transcript Request Form may be obtained by contacting records@walshcollege.edu. Requests for transcripts cannot be accepted via phone.

Official transcripts will not be provided for those with outstanding financial obligations. The eTranscript service is not available for students who last attended Walsh before 1990.

Transcripts issued directly to the student will be stamped “Issued to Student” and should be considered unofficial. In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), official transcripts issued to Walsh from previously attended colleges and universities are furnished in confidence and are considered part of the student’s educational record. Therefore, duplication of the student’s previous official college transcripts will not be permitted. Walsh does not fax academic transcripts to students, employers, or agencies under any circumstances.
