Transcripts and Verifications

Enrollment Verifications | Degree Verifications | H-1B Visa Letters


Please Note: Transcripts are processed daily at the time you place the order. If you need a transcript reflecting final grades, please submit your request after you verified all of your final grades have been posted in your DukeHub account. If you need a transcript reflecting your degree posted, please wait until after the semester has ended and the graduation ceremony is complete to submit the request. 

Duke University has authorized Parchment, Inc. to provide transcript ordering.

This site clearly guides you through the ordering process, including delivery options and fees. Multiple transcripts may be ordered in a single session by adding them to the cart. Order updates will be emailed and you can check your order status or history online. Transcripts will not be processed if an account is flagged for outstanding financial obligations to the University. FedEx charges can be paid via MasterCard, Discover, or Visa. The card will only be charged after the order has been completed.

Pick up

  • Transcripts can only be picked up during office hours.
  • No per transcript fee.
  • "Issued to Student" will be stamped on official transcripts picked up by students.

Every Duke student, past and present, pays a one-time transcript fee during the first semester of enrollment, thus making future payments for transcripts unnecessary. Transcripts may be requested to be sent via FedEx for expedited delivery at the requestor's expense. For more information about our FedEx service, see Delivery Options above.

The Duke University Transcript Guide appears on the reverse side of the Duke University transcript and is included with every electronic transcript distributed by the Office of the University Registrar. The purpose of the Transcript Guide is to provide additional information (course number schema, valid grade options and grade definitions, course unit to semester hour conversion, etc.) and historical context to supplement what is found on the actual transcript.
