Requesting official transcripts

An official transcript is a complete academic record bearing the University seal and signature of the Registrar.

Your process for requesting official transcripts depends on whether you are a current or former student. Please note that requests cannot be made by email.

Current students

Current students must use the online request form, accessible in your Student Centre. See instructions for accessing your Student Centre.

You will be able to select your preferred method of delivery. Please see the table below for cost and delivery details.

If you encounter any issues while completing your transcript request online, try disabling your browser’s pop-up blockers and/or use a different browser. (Firefox | Chrome)

Alumni

Alumni who attended after 1980 can request official transcripts online.

If it has been more than a year since you last accessed your Student Centre, you will need to re-activate your Netname before submitting your request. Even if you remember your Netname and password, you will not be able to log in until you re-activate it.

Reactivating your Netname

  • To reactivate your Netname, call 514-848-2424 ext. 7613, or email help@concordia.ca
  • As of January 2015, all 7-digit student ID numbers were changed to 8 digits. As such, former students must add the number 2 to the start of their original student ID number (ex. 21234567) when submitting requests.

Please see the table below for cost and delivery details.

Alumni who attended before 1980 must complete a PDF request form and submit it by fax to 514-848-2837, or in person, at the Birks Student Service Centre.

Please see the table below for cost and delivery details.

Written authorization, signed by the Concordia student, alumnus or alumna, must be provided along with the completed transcript request form if someone plans to make a transcript request by proxy on someone’s behalf. The same is required if someone plans to pick up a transcript on someone else’s behalf. Please use the Authorization To Request And/Or Pick Up Official Transcripts form for this purpose.

Official transcripts for World Education Services (WES) are sent electronically.

When submitting your request select the regular mail method of delivery and:
