Transcripts and Grades
According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, all transcripts must be released with the consent of the student (or former student). Because of this, we need to verify your identity in order to release your records.
Electronic Ordering/Delivery Service
We are excited to offer a new online ordering service for both printed and electronic delivery of official transcripts. Electronic ordering is only available for students with computerized records (i.e., those who attended after 1982). We have recently changed vendors from Credentials eScrip-Safe to Parchment Inc. In order to use this service, you must create an account (even if you had a Credentials Solutions account). This requires that you provide your last name and date of birth and you must have your Reed ID number (not your Social Security number). Once your account is verified, you may order official transcripts and pay with a debit/credit card. Please call the Registrar's Office at 503-777-7793 if you do not know, or would like to confirm, your Reed ID number.
We will download orders at 1:00 p.m. each day (except on summer half-day Fridays, when orders will be downloaded at 11 a.m.), so same day delivery for electronically delivered transcripts may be available if your order is submitted by 1 (or 11 on summer Fridays). Please note: online orders placed after 1 p.m. on Friday (11 during the summer) or over the weekend will not be processed until the next business day. Click here to use this service.
Regular OrdersIf you began at Reed before 1982, or if you would like to order a transcript using our transcript request form, click here and you will find a fillable PDF form that you can complete on your computer or electronic device. We suggest that you use the latest version of Adobe Reader (available below) or Google Chrome to complete the form, as certain functions are incompatible with other readers and browsers (especially Apple Preview and Mozilla Firefox). After the form is filled out, click the "PRINT" button (at the bottom of the page) to print the document. You must sign the form and return it to the Registrar's Office. You may always fax, scan and email, or take a picture of the form and send as a .jpg in order to save time. If you prefer, you may also print the blank form and complete it by hand.

Process and Payments
Official transcripts cost $5 per copy. We do our best to send out all printed transcripts within 24 hours of receiving the signed request. Please allow us more time for processing during busy transcript times. We accept payment in the form of cash, check, or money order. You may pay by card with our online ordering system mentioned above. If paying by check or money order, please make funds payable to Reed College, and mail payment to the address indicated above. If you are faxing or emailing your signed request, please send your payment by mail; we will not delay processing your order while awaiting payment.
Additional Grade Information
This is the Grades at Reed information that is sent with all official transcripts (electronic and hardcopy) intended to give the recipient a better understanding of the Reed grading system and relative lack of grade inflation.
This is the Transcript Key that is on the reverse side of an official Reed College transcript.
