Areas of Study

The transcript is Gallaudet University’s official statement of a student’s academic record. It lists all courses (completed & currently enrolled) and all grades earned, along with the applicable semester. The official transcript also contains notations of majors, minors, degrees, and graduation honors received.

Transcripts are not issued for students who owe money to the University or has any other outstanding obligations (i.e., library fines, dorm fees, parking tickets). It is against the law to make copies of transcripts from other institutions. You must request a transcript directly from that institution.

For your protection, we will not release an official transcript without your permission and signature. The transcript is printed on security sensitive paper and contains the University Seal and the signature of the University Registrar.
