Order Transcript  

An official transcript is a complete record of the courses and grades earned by a student at the University.

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

Undergraduate, graduate (master's and doctoral levels), below college, and CEUs are segregated on separate pages of the SPU transcript.

Official transcripts can be issued either in printed form on security paper with the seal of the University or in electronic form, both provided by the National Student Clearinghouse using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

Students are responsible to ensure that all the desired grades and degrees are reflected on the transcript before the order is placed. Please check your unofficial transcript in the Banner Information System.  

All current and former students, including teachers or professionals who have taken credit or clock hours through SPU's Continuing Professional Education program, have access to Banner.

If you don't know your SPU credentials, you can recover your credentials here: Find My ID

If you are having difficulty recovering your credentials, you may not have a current email on file. Please email us at, or call us at (206) 281-2032 with your current contact information.

Unofficial transcripts are free and do not contain the seal of the University, thus they may not be acceptable to most institutions.

Coursework taken prior to Autumn Quarter 1984

Any student with coursework prior to 1984, who has not ordered a transcript in the last 10 years, should first email stating their intent to place an order. Please include your full current name, name as it was during attendance, and approximate dates of attendance. We will enter your academic history from our legacy system into Banner, and reply to your email when you are able to place your order online.

In-Office Ordering

Printed Official transcripts may be ordered for in person pick up.  Please use the online ordering method and select “hold for pick up” and then email to request an appointment for pick up.  If you wish to come in person and pay cash or check, please email to schedule an appointment.  Individuals with coursework prior to 1984 will need to allow several days for their academic history to be imported to Banner before transcripts can be ordered or picked up.

Sending Transcripts to SPU

Current students who have completed a pre-approved course through another institution are required to submit an official transcript to Student Academic Services. Your Academic Counselor will review the transcript, transferring the course as determined by the Application for Studying Away that must be filed before registering for the course.
