Options and details for requesting transcripts:

Duquesne University has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to process transcript requests. This partnership allows us to offer additional services including electronic PDF's, email notifications, order tracking, and status updates by text messaging. Students can also now send electronic transcripts directly to AMCAS, LSAC or other designated NSC partners. The adoption of these new services has resulted in fees for transcripts and related processing.

*School of Law students who attended prior to Fall 2001 will not be able to obtain electronic PDF transcripts.  If you select this option but it is technically not available for you based on your enrollment history, you will be contacted by the Office of the University Registrar during regular business hours.

You will receive email confirmation of your order and may opt to receive text-message status updates. Payment of fees is accepted by credit or debit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, Diner's Club, and JCB). Your card will not be charged until the transcript request has been processed.

Processing Details:

Most electronic PDF transcripts are processed within an hour of order placement, although some circumstances require additional processing time.  Some conditions of enrollment prohibit the generation of electronic PDF transcripts. All non-PDF delivery methods require a minimum 1- to 2-day processing time. Processing may be longer during peak periods (final exams, graduation) or if the student attended prior to Fall 2007. Additional time may also be required due to University closures. Closure notices will be posted at the top of this page. Under most circumstances, an electronic PDF transcript order will be processed despite closures and peak delays.

Express mail shipping to a PO Box is only available through USPS. The last daily pick-up for USPS occurs at 1:00pm. Transcript requests processed after 1:00pm that are to be express-mailed to a PO Box will be shipped the following business day.

All financial obligations to the University must be met before a transcript will be released.  If financial holds prohibit the release of transcripts, email alerts will contain relevant instructions for addressing these holds. 

For current students:  Degrees are typically awarded approximately three weeks following the commencement date for each term.  Degrees will not appear on transcripts until that time. 

Please note:  The LSAC LLM Credential Assembly Service does not accept electronic PDF transcripts.   Do not order transcripts for LLM via the Electronic Exchange service.

Refunds will not be issued.

Note: In order to view the transcript, Adobe Reader 9 or higher is required. For Adobe Reader 11 and higher, Adobe Flash is also required to view the transcript.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why did the process for ordering transcripts change?

Transcript ordering at Duquesne was an outdated and manual process. Student demands as well as the use of online technologies for transcript processing required that we update the methods students use to order transcripts. There were three primary objectives in seeking to modernize the way we produced transcripts:
a. Enable all students-both current and former-to order transcripts online. (In the former system, only current students could submit requests online.)
b. Offer current and former students an option to send a PDF of their transcript, which is delivered electronically and securely.
c. Support the University's goals to respect the environment and to act responsibly to develop sustainable business practices in the stewardship of University resources.

2. Why was the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) solution chosen as the preferred solution?

The new transcript ordering system is an extension of the Banner Student System-the University's official system of record for student information. Ellucian, the developers of the Banner system, selected NSC to be their strategic partner in offering online ordering and electronic delivery of transcripts. In short, the NSC system is the recommended transcript ordering solution and is fully integrated with Banner, providing secure and real-time access to transcripts.

3. Why are fees now charged for transcripts?

Transcripts have never been produced at no cost. There are expenses involved with the secure paper on which transcripts are printed, the window-envelopes in which they are mailed, and the postage associated with mailing them. With the adoption of our new processing came additional costs. The National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) charges fees for their transcript services, and the University cannot absorb those fees.

4. What fees are associated with transcripts?

The PDF costs $4.00, of which $2.25 is paid to the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), and $1.75 is paid to Adobe for their charges associated with the security features of the PDF. The paper transcript costs $5.00 for pick-up or $5.50 if mailed. Each additional paper transcript costs $1.00 per transcript order. The NSC charges $2.25 per paper order, and the remaining monies are put toward the costs associated with the secure transcript paper, the envelopes, and the postage.

5. I'm a current student. Do I have to order a transcript to view my grades?

No, current students do not have to order a transcript to view their grades. Current students can view their transcript by logging on to DORI and clicking on Banner Self-Service > Student Information > Student Records > View Academic Transcripts. If an account balance hold prevents access to the transcript, students can click on Final Grades to view their grades on a term-by-term basis.
