Drexel students and alumni are able to order copies of their official academic transcripts via the National Student Clearinghouse. Transcripts are available in two formats:

  • PDF – Secure electronic PDFs can be emailed to selected email addresses.
  • Paper – Paper transcripts can be mailed to an address specified by the student or picked-up in person at Drexel Central.

The charge associated with ordering PDF transcripts is $15.00. The charge associated with Paper transcripts is $15.00 per transcript, with a service fee of $5.00 per order. The $5.00 is only charged once per order, and not per transcript. Credit/debit card payment must be made via the National Student Clearinghouse in order for a transcript request to be processed. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed.

The cutoff for all Expedited (UPS) Transcript requests is at 12:00 p.m. of the order date. All Expedited Transcripts received after 12:00 p.m. will be processed the following business day. Requests received after 12:00 p.m. Friday will be processed the following Monday.

Transcript orders that are placed during National Holidays, or in cases of weather related university closure, will be processed when Drexel University reopens for business operations.

Order updates will be emailed to you. You can also track your order online using your email address and order number.

There is a 90-day expiration time frame for all PDF transcript orders. The electronic certificate to certify the PDF as being an official transcript will inactivate 90 days after the original order date.

Please note, a transcript order will still be able to be submitted through the website if a hold(s) exists on your student record. You will have 30 days to resolve the hold(s) before the transcript order is cancelled. If your hold(s) is resolved within 30 days your transcript will be processed according to the order type and delivery time frame you select. The fee for your transcript order will be charged to your payment account once the order is processed.
