How to Replace (and Store) Crucial Documents
How to Get Copies of School TranscriptsWhy you need it: To apply for graduate school or professional regulatory boards, and to take certain graduate-school admissions tests (like the LSAT). Occasionally potential employers will request an academic transcript.
Where to get a new one: Go through your college or university’s student-services department. Websites that claim to expedite the process can be unreliable or just plain fraudulent.
What you need to get it: A transcript-request form (check the school’s website, or ask for one from your student-services office) or a written request that includes your Social Security number, year of graduation, degree, and address, plus a check to cover the fee, if any. Some schools require an applicant’s actual signature, not a copy, in which case you’ll have to make the request in person or by mail.
How long it takes: Three to five business days from the time the school receives your request, provided there’s no hold on your account. If you’re in a rush, request FedEx service. But Veronica Primrose, a student-services specialist at the University of Notre Dame, warns that if the request comes at a busy time (January and May are the worst), you may have to wait longer.
