Requests for academic transcripts can be made in writing or via Bison Web.

WEB TRANSCRIPT REQUESTS: Web transcript requests are the fastest and most convenient way to obtain an official transcript. This requires that you complete the entire web process including confirmation of payment via credit card. Web requests are usually processed the “next business day.” To request a transcript via the web select the Bison Web link and enter your User ID (HU student ID number), and your PIN (six digit date of birth). You are required to enter the “@”symbol and “01” if your ID number is less than eight digits.

WRITTEN REQUESTS: Written requests will be honored only if they contain the signature of the student or former student whose record is requested and the student must be cleared financially by the Office of Student Financial Services. Please include your name, student identification or social security number, approximate dates of attendance, and the exact address where you want the transcript sent. All transcript requests will be honored as expeditiously as possible, but during such periods as examinations, grade reporting, and registration there may be some delay.

Each academic transcript issued by the Office of the Registrar reflects, in chronological order, the COMPLETE and UNABRIDGED history of ALL academic endeavors attempted and/or earned by the student at Howard University. Partial transcripts are not furnished.

The fee for all official transcripts is $5 per copy. Please note, the fee is non-refundable once the request has been submitted. Students may obtain unofficial transcripts for free via Bison Web.
