Transcript requests

Wayne State University has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide online ordering of WSU official transcripts. Ordering a transcript from NSC is easy, secure, and a more convenient way to order online at any time. Once a transcript is ordered it can be tracked through text message and email.

The National Student Clearinghouse transcript request is the only method in which official transcripts may be requested. Wayne State University does not accept transcript requests over the phone.
