Both official transcripts and unofficial transcripts can be released to students upon request. Transcripts are released only on written authorization or electronic authorization (via the Banner Information System) of the student whose records are requested. Although a copy of the transcript may be requested at any time, updated transcripts will be available after final grades have been submitted and recorded.

Transcripts contain a student’s entire academic history while at SPU.

  • Below college level work (0001–0999 courses)
  • Undergraduate work (1000–4999 courses)
  • Professional advancement courses (5000–5999)
  • Graduate work (6000–7999)
  • Continuing education units (CEU, or non-degree work)

Undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, below college, and CEUs are segregated on separate pages of the SPU transcript.

Seattle Pacific University reserves the right to deny official transcript services for indebtedness to the institution. If the student has an account, official transcripts are released only if the account is paid in full.

To order an official transcript, students can make requests by accessing the Banner Information System and selecting the “Student Menu” then “Academic Records Menu” then “Official Transcripts and Enrollment Verifications.”  Following the “Click Here” prompt will direct the student to the National Student Clearinghouse website. Credit card payment is required.

To view an unofficial transcript, students can access the Banner Information System and select the “Student Menu” then “Academic Records Menu” then “Unofficial Transcript.”  Unofficial transcripts are free of charge.
