Parent Grade Report

Our office must receive a completed Academic Information Release form from the student before a parent can request his or her grades. The form must have the signature of the student and the parent(s) who will be requesting the grades.

Once the Academic Information Release form is on file in our office, a parent may then request the student’s grades by filling out this form, signing it, and returning it to the Registrar's Office. In lieu of the form, a letter may be used.

This form (or letter) can be:
1. Scanned and e-mailed as a .pdf or .jpg attachment to registrar@reed.edu
2. Sent via fax to 503-777-7795; or
3. Sent in the mail to:

Office of the Registrar
Reed College
3203 SE Woodstock Blvd
Portland OR 97202.

There is no charge for a Parent Grade Report. Please keep in mind that this is not an official transcript and is not intended for third party distribution. We must have the student’s signed request to be able to release the official transcript.

Duplicate Diploma

The only copy of a student's diploma is the one that was issued upon graduation. The Office of the Registrar does not keep a copy. For a replacement diploma to be issued, the original diploma must have been irretrievably lost or destroyed (if only damaged, the original must be returned to Reed).

The attendance and graduation of the person in question will be verified by the Registrar’s Office.

Payment of $40 must be made in advance. The diploma will be issued only in the name under which the student attended Reed. (In the case of an official name change, court documents must be produced, and the Official Transcript will indicate the new name.)

Prior to collection or mailing of the document, originals or notarized copies of one of the following must be produced for identification:

  • Current Driver's License
  • Passport
  • Birth Certificate

The replacement diploma may not be exactly identical to the original. Please allow four to six weeks for the processing of duplicate diploma requests.

Please send all required information and a signed letter requesting the diploma to be reissued to:

Office of the Registrar
Reed College
3203 SE Woodstock Blvd
Portland OR 97202

Enrollment/GPA

The Registrar's Office at Reed College is able to provide the following types of verification:

Enrollment Status: The Registrar's Office can verify enrollment status and dates of attendance at Reed College. This is considered directory information and public, unless the student specifically requests otherwise. Verifications are used for myriad purposes, including but not limited to insurance coverage, internship and scholarship applications, visa applications for study abroad programs, etc.

Loan Deferments: Reed also verifies enrollment status for purposes related to loan deferments. Generally the loan servicing agency provides specific forms that the student must request. The student can send or bring the form to Eliot 315 to request it be filled out and sent to the loan servicing agency.

GPA: Reed is able to verify a grade point average when a student makes the request. If parents wish to request such information, the student and parents must sign the Student Academic Information Release form and file it with the Registrar's office. All requests for GPA information must be made in writing with the signature of the student (or parents). If the office does not have record of the student's consent to release academic information, the college cannot and will not release such information to parties other than the student. The Student Academic Information Release form can be found in the Registrar's Office, Eliot 311.

If you need any of these sorts of things verified, or if you need verification regarding something not listed here, please feel free to contact the Registrar's Office by e-mail at registrar@reed.edu. You can also drop by the office in Eliot 315 during the office's normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m..
