Student Records

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences Registrar’s Office has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering online. This online ordering service is available for FAS students and alumni 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Normal processing time, excluding holiday and office closures, is 2-3 business days once an order is received by the University.

Online Student Record

The FAS Online Student Record is an internal advising document that includes information on coursework undertaken in a specific degree program for undergraduate students. Information such as a student's concentration or department, abbreviated course titles, year/term of course enrollments, course credit value and grades earned, are listed on this document. This document will also display courses that count for General Education and College course requirements, Advanced Placement scores, credits received from Study Abroad, and an annual and cumulative GPA.
 
Access to Education Records
 
Students and alumni wishing access to their education records should write to the FAS Registrar’s Office and include their name, date of birth, and dates of attendance.  The student or alum should identify the specific record or records he/she wishes to inspect. Once the request is received the Registrar’s Office will gather the appropriate records and access will be given within 45 days from the receipt of the request. When a record contains information about more than one student, the student requesting access may inspect and review only the portion of the record relating to him or her. Students also are not permitted to view letters and statements of recommendation to which they waived their right of access, or that were placed in their file before January 1, 1975.  Requests may be sent to transcripts@fas.harvard.edu or mailed to:
