Ordering Official Transcripts
Official transcripts are issued by the Registrar’s Office. A Glenville State University transcript will include all coursework completed with Glenville State University (undergraduate and graduate), all transfer work which was accepted and posted, and any credits awarded. Partial transcripts are not available. In addition, Glenville State University will not provide customers with copies of another institution’s transcript that we have on file. Those transcripts will need to be requested by that institution. When sending an official transcript to another college or university, it will need to be sent directly from GSU to that institution. Most colleges or universities will not accept a transcript from the student themselves and will not consider the transcript to be official.
We do not provide unofficial transcripts. These are available in a student's EdNet account if attendance was after June 1990. For students who attended prior to June 1990, please contact the Registrar's Office at (304) 462-6120 or email@example.com for additional information.
You must have all financial and academic obligations satisfied with Glenville State University for your request to be processed.
Transcript requests are processed in the order in which they are received. Please allow 1-3 business days for your request to be processed. On days the university is closed, requests submitted with the delivery option of mailed or hold for pickup will be processed when we the university is back in session. Requests submitted for electronic PDF transcripts will still be processed so long as there are no holds on the student's account.
In the event a transcript is not received by the intended recipient, Glenville State University will resend a transcript to the same address at no charge 14 days after the order was placed and up to 30 days from the date the transcript was initially sent. Requests for transcripts to be resent before 14 days or after 30 days of the initial order, or to a different address will require a new order and additional payment.
If your name has changed since you were last enrolled and you wish to have your current name reflected on your transcript, you will need to complete and submit the Address/Name Change Request Form prior to placing your transcript request. A certified copy of a marriage license, court order, or divorce decree, or a copy of your current Driver's License or Social Security Card must accompany the form. You may email the form and documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be notified by email once the name change has been processed.
Ordering Transcripts Online
For the fastest service, Glenville State University has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering via the Web. Due to our automated ordering processing, once an order is placed, it cannot be cancelled. For assistance with the ordering process, you may contact the National Student Clearinghouse Customer Care Team directly at (703) 742-4200. They have assistants available to walk you through the process. A link to Step-by-Step instructions with screen shots are also available at the end of this section.
The following two options are processed within 1 - 3 hours of submitting the request, 24/7. Once an electronic transcript has been sent, you will not be able to change the recipient's email address and a new order will be required. If requesting to have an electronic transcript sent to another college or university, be sure to request it to be emailed directly to that institution and not to yourself. An electronic transcript which has been forwarded from a student will typically not be accepted and will not be considered to be an official transcript.
