Return to: 1300 University Academic Regulations
A student who has no unmet financial obligations to Georgia State University is entitled to receive, upon request, a copy of his or her transcript. Official transcripts of academic work completed at Georgia State University may be ordered via PAWS at paws.gsu.edu. A student is entitled to five free lifetime official transcripts. Once a student has requested the five free, official transcripts, Georgia State will charge a $10.00 processing fee for each transcript processed thereafter. Active students can print unofficial transcripts at no charge on PAWS. Processing an official transcript may take up to five to ten business days depending on when the request is made. Picture identification is required to pick up transcripts.
Transcript requests will not be processed until complete payment is received. Credit card payment is required for web requests.
Requests for copies of official transcripts received from other institutions will not be granted. Such requests must be directed to the institution holding the student’s original records.
Routine copies of other information in the student’s education records, with the exception of transcripts from other institutions and other items excluded from copying by practice or regulation will be provided upon written request. A fee may be charged to cover the cost of copying. Special certifications based on educational records will be provided upon written request when permissible.
Additional information on transcripts can be found in PAWS and on the Registrar’s website at registrar.gsu.edu/academic-records/transcripts.
