Ordering Official Transcripts
Western University of Health Sciences has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering via the Student Portal or directly through the National Student Clearinghouse. Transcripts ordered online can be purchased using any major credit or debit card. Your credit or debit card is not charged until your transcript request is processed. If you are using your debit card, your bank may put a hold on your funds when we pre-authorize your payment. Transcript fees cannot be charged to your student account.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 prevents the Registrar’s Office from releasing materials contained in your student file without your written permission. To comply with FERPA, Western University of Health Sciences requires that requests be made online via the Student Portal or directly through the National Student Clearinghouse. The Registrar’s Office will not accept any requests by telephone or email.
