Official transcript request

Digital transcripts

Make your request to order a digital transcript directly in Quest; this option is available to any student who was enrolled at Waterloo since 2001.

  • In Quest: Select the Academics tile and then select Official Transcript Request link from the left.

By requesting a digital copy, you authorize the University of Waterloo to share your data with MyCredsTM.

Your digital transcript will be available in 1-2 business days. Once your request is processed, you will receive an email with a link to the MyCredsTM Learner portal. You can then make a payment to purchase share credits and then share your transcript with a third party or yourself via an email address. Note: At least one share credit must be purchased to view your official digital transcript.

Learn more about how Waterloo is using the MyCredsTM Learner portal and the details about how to share and send your digital transcripts.

Additional transcript information

  • Official transcripts are generated within 1-2 business days.
  • Graduate studies students: If you were also an undergraduate student, information from both degrees will appear on your transcript. There is no need to request two separate transcripts.
  • If you were enrolled prior to September 2001 and did not graduate, call us at 519-888-4567, ext. 42268 to request your official transcript. 
  • What's on the transcript: A transcript reflects the current status of a student’s record at the time it is issued. If you require your completed degree to appear on your official transcript, submit your official transcript request only after the degree is visible on your unofficial transcript. Degrees are normally coded two to four weeks following the end of your final term.
