There are three ways for students and alumni to request transcripts of their Virginia Commonwealth University academic record:

  • Transcripts are available through the National Student Clearinghouse at a charge of  $5 per copy for printed transcripts and $6.75 for PDF transcripts. PDF transcripts are only available to students who were in attendance in 1989 or later. An additional service charge of $2.25 will be applied to each order. Effective September 30, 2019, the transcript processing fee will increase 25¢ per recipient to $2.50.To track the status of your order, go to the National Student Clearinghouse transcript status site.
  • Transcripts can be ordered by completing the Transcript Request Form or submitting a written request, including signature. Mailed requests should include a check or money order payment. Do not send cash.

Students and alumni with financial holds will not be able to receive a transcript.

Official transcripts

Official transcripts are sent via U.S. Postal Service first-class mail, express mail, online PDF or can be picked up by the requester. Mailed copies are only official if in a sealed and stamped Virginia Commonwealth University envelope. Only five transcripts can be requested per day. Allow 2 business days for processing.

Requests for expedited delivery are accepted at a charge of $25 per copy and will be sent domestically or internationally via USPS express mail.

The records of individuals who attended VCU prior to 1979 may not be computerized, and processing may take up to 10 business days.

Unofficial transcripts

Unofficial transcripts are available to current students and recent alumni via eServices and from Records and Registration.

Grade mailers

Students who need paper copies of their grades can print them from eServices or submit the Grade Mailer Request Form.
