Transcripts

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are printed on red and white scrip-safe paper and bear the facsimile signature of the School of Law Registrar. Official transcripts are sealed in special transcript envelopes; if the envelope is opened the transcript becomes unofficial. We do not currently offer official electronic transcripts.

Some employers and all higher education institutions require official transcripts. Many institutions will accept official transcripts directly from students as long as the seal of the official transcript envelope has not been broken. Some institutions, including the Law School Admissions Council, will only accept official transcripts that are mailed directly from the School of Law.

Unofficial Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts can be sent on paper, by fax, or by email as pdf documents. Unofficial transcripts have a white background bearing the Seattle University School of Law logo and a watermark that notes the transcript is unofficial.

Many employers will accept unofficial transcripts. Higher education institutions will generally not accept unofficial transcripts.

Requesting Transcripts by Email

Current Seattle University School of Law students and recent alumni can submit a transcript request by emailing lawreg@seattleu.edu from their Seattle University email accounts (the email must come from your SU email account, which serves as your electronic signature). Please include the following information in your request:

  • Your name
  • Your student ID
  • Whether you need an official or unofficial transcript
  • Where the transcripts should be sent (unofficial transcripts can be emailed, faxed, mailed, or picked up. Official transcripts must be mailed or picked up).

Requesting Transcripts Using the Document Request Form

Current students and alumni can request a transcript by submitting a completed Document Request Form. The request form must bear your hand-written signature. The form should be submitted to:

Seattle University School of Law
Office of the Registrar
901 12th Avenue - Sullivan Hall
Seattle, WA 98122-1090
Fax: (206)-398-4058
Email: lawreg@seattleu.edu

Document Request Forms may be faxed or scanned and emailed. It is not necessary to mail an original copy if you choose to submit your form by fax or email.

Requesting Transcripts by Letter

You may write a brief letter instead of using the transcript request form. The letter must bear your hand-written signature. Please include the following information in your request:

  • Your name (Include former names if you've changed your name since graduating)
  • Your student ID (if known)
  • Your year of graduation 
  • Whether you need an official or unofficial transcript
  • Where the transcripts should be sent (unofficial transcripts can be emailed, faxed, mailed, or picked up. Official transcripts must be mailed or picked up).

Transcript Cost

Official and unofficial transcripts are free for current students (with the exception of transcripts for transfer applications, see Transfer Packet Request for details). Alumni and former students are charged $5.00 for each official transcript. There is no charge for unofficial transcripts. We are currently unable to accept credit card payments. Please pay by cash, check or money order. If you are faxing or emailing a request, you may mail your payment separately to the address above.

Transfer Packet Requests

Students requesting transcripts for the purpose of law school transfer applications must complete a Transfer Packet Request. This allows us to accurately track all required documents.

Transcripts from Other Schools or Other Seattle University Programs

Seattle University School of Law cannot provide official or unofficial copies of other school's transcripts. You must request those transcripts directly from the school.

Seattle University School of Law cannot provide official or unofficial transcripts for other Seattle University programs. You may request undergraduate or graduate transcripts from the Seattle University Office of the Registrar

Account Restrictions

The Business Office, Law Library, or University Student Financial Services Office may place a hold on a student's transcript if they have an outstanding debt. Transcripts will not be released until the hold is lifted by the office that placed it. Transcripts will also be held if a student's final undergraduate transcript has not yet been received.
