In accordance with the TWU FERPA policy (Family Educational Rights Privacy Act), transcripts can only be released to the student or to a third party upon signed, written authorization of the student, except in certain situations prescribed by Federal law. All financial and administrative obligations to the University must be met before an official TWU transcript will be released. Official transcripts will show all TWU work and only a summary of transfer credit by institution. Unofficial transcripts will show an itemized listing of TWU and transfer courses. Transcripts reflecting the official academic record from other institutions must be ordered from the original institution.
There is no charge for an unofficial transcript. There is a $10.00 charge for each copy of an official transcript. Official transcripts ordered through the online ordering system will incur an additional transaction/convenience fee. Other services such as electronic and express delivery will be charged additional fees based on the service requested. Transcript orders may take up to 5 business days to complete, although most will be processed within 48 hours of receiving the completed request. Peak times and account holds may delay processing beyond the 5 business days.
Students wishing to have a transcript order not processed until after the posting of grades or a degree should indicate this at the time the order is placed.
