Official Transcripts

Northeastern has contracted with Parchment for electronic ordering of official transcripts, sending electronic PDF transcripts on behalf of Northeastern, and responding to transcript inquiries. Note: a PDF transcript is an official transcript and contains identical information as the paper transcript.

Ordering Your Official Transcript: Current/Recent Students
Current students, along with former students and alumni who attended Northeastern within the past 18 months, should request an official transcript by logging in to NEIUport. Choose the Current Student tab, and click on the “Transcript” link in the Academic Profile channel. 

Ordering Your Official Transcript: Alumni and Former Students
Alumni and former students who do not have access to NEIUport should visit Parchment. Requests may require a signature page before your transcript request will be processed. Follow the instructions when ordering.

  • If you do not have a credit or debit card, you can purchase a prepaid card at many convenience or grocery stores. You also can pay with cash by coming in person to Enrollment Services in Room D 101 on the Main Campus.
  • All obligations that prevent the release of a transcript must be resolved before the request will be processed.
  • Transcript requests not made through NEIUport may require the student’s written signature (i.e. the signature page) before the request will be processed.
  • Any in-progress coursework for which you are registered will automatically be included on the transcript.
  • Northeastern only releases official transcripts. Current or former students whose access to NEIUport is active may view or print their own unofficial transcript.
  • Northeastern releases your entire academic transcript. Requests to only release one semester or, for example, only your undergraduate transcript cannot be honored.
  • Although requests to send a transcript showing semester grades can be submitted once the semester begins, grades will not be available until two days after the official end of the semester. Therefore, requests to “hold for the posting of grades” will not be processed until after the semester has ended.
  • Requests to “hold for the posting of degrees” will be processed approximately eight weeks after the official end of the semester.
  • If you either attended Northeastern prior to Fall 1976 or you graduated from the University Without Walls (UWW) program, we are currently not able to send your transcript as a PDF.  Additionally, the PDF option is not available to some Board of Governors (BOG) students.
