• How to Send College Transcripts

  • Typically, you can find instructions for ordering transcripts by visiting the registrar’s page of your previous college’s website. It’s important to get this process started as soon as possible since processing times vary by college.

    Considerations on processing and receiving materials due to coronavirus (COVID-19)
    Drexel Admissions is currently processing application documents received through the U.S. Postal Service and courier services (DHL, FedEx, UPS, etc.), although there is a slight delay in processing these documents. We strongly recommend you submit all official transcripts and supportive documentation digitally to applyduonline@drexel.edu. If your school is not able to send official transcripts because they do not offer an electronic request option, you may digitally send us unofficial transcripts (applies to graduate programs only; undergraduate programs must submit official transcripts upon application); however, we will require you to submit official transcripts prior to enrolling at Drexel University. We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time at Drexel and around the world. We will process all documents as soon as we receive them, but please expect some delays.

    Transcript Requirements

    • You must order official transcripts from all colleges you've previously attended (including trade schools), regardless of the number or type of credits earned
      • Example: John Doe took one course at a community college before transferring to the four-year college where he received his degree. He still needs to order both transcripts, even if that one course appears on his final degree transcript
      • If you don’t list all colleges on your application and they appear on transcripts from other schools, your application will not be reviewed until you have submitted the remaining transcripts.
    • We prefer electronic transcripts

    Electronic Transcripts

    • Colleges can email transcripts via a password secured link or website to us at applyDUonline@drexel.edu.
    • Transcripts must be sent from a verified email address at the issuing college (not a personal account), include both the front and back sides of the transcript, specifically state "Official Transcript," and contain the registrar signature

    Mailed Paper Transcripts

    • Transcripts must arrive in university-sealed envelopes. If one is mailed to you, you may forward it to us as long as the envelope remains unopened
    • We can not accept faxed or photocopied transcripts
