Transcripts and Degree Verification

Ordering transcripts

The Registrar's Office will be closed for holiday break from December 24 to January 5. If you would like a copy of your transcript before the new year, please submit your request no later than 10 am on Tuesday, December 23. Any transcript requests submitted after that time will be processed beginning January 6.

Current HDS students, as well as alumni, may order official transcripts online. Harvard Divinity School has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide online transcript ordering. You can order transcripts using any major credit card, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Transcript orders ordinarily take five to seven business days to process, although rush processing is available. 

To order a transcript, or for additional information, please log in to the National Student Clearinghouse secure site. The site provides detailed information regarding placing an order, including delivery options, fees, and signing the Consent to Release form. In addition to the convenience of a credit card payment, the online service provides email notifications once orders are received and processed by the Registrar's Office. Your credit card will only be charged after your order has been completed.

If you need help or have questions about the National Student Clearinghouse's transcript ordering service, please contact them via email at transcripts@studentclearinghouse.org or by phone at 703.742.7791.

Current HDS students may also access unofficial transcripts online through my.hds (login required) under "Online Tools."

Non-HDS students, including cross-registrants from other schools, should request transcripts from their home school and not from HDS.
