Transcripts


The academic transcript is an official record of a student's grades. In most cases, electronic transcripts are delivered within minutes of placing your order. Transcript requests for paper copies are normally processed within two business days of receiving your request. Please allow additional processing time for legacy records, students who attended prior to 1990.

Emory University has partnered with Parchment to issue official transcripts. You can order your transcript 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and you can track the status of your order online at any time.

Please note: Beginning September 15, 2022, all current and former students will have to create a profile in Parchment before placing their next transcript order. The profile setup is a one-time process and can be completed using any email address – not just an Emory email!

Types of Requests

Current students use the Parchment ordering system to order transcripts via OPUS. Students who have graduated in the past year can also start in OPUS to order transcripts from Parchment.
