Transcript Information

What is an official transcript?

An official transcript is a certified statement of your academic record at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Official transcripts are printed on security sensitive paper containing the seal of Gordon-Conwell and the signature of the Registrar or are sent electronically through Scrip-Safe; a secure online delivery network.  You may request either method of delivery. For more information on electronic transcript delivery, please see below.

Coursework completed for different degrees at Gordon-Conwell will appear on separate sections of the transcript. When a transcript is released, it contains a complete record of all academic work at Gordon-Conwell. Your transcript lists all completed courses with grades and all courses in progress.

What situations prevent a transcript from being issued?

  • No transcripts will be issued if the student has not fulfilled all financial obligations to Gordon-Conwell. Unless all payments are made and the Registration Office is made aware of this, we cannot ensure that your transcripts will be sent.
  • Your signed release absolutely must accompany any request for a transcript if you are not ordering your transcript through your CAMS student portal.  You will be required to submit a signed release form to Scrip-Safe for your transcript to be released.  The form is provided at the end of the online request process.

  • Network Delivery-

When completing your order, you can search for a schools or organizations within the network first by selecting the state and then typing the school’s name. If within the network, the school’s name and address will come up and can be selected fro delivery.

  • OneTime Delivery-

If your intended recipient is not a network member (e.g. an individual, church, or business) and you wish to deliver your transcript electronically, this method may be used. Receivers are designated and identified by you, the requestor, through the recipient’s mailing and email address. You should always notify your intended recipient they will be receiving important email messages regarding the electronic delivery of your transcript.

OneTime receivers must complete a simple registration for each transcript delivered through eSCRIP-SAFE. In addition, they must have a copy of Adobe Reader 7.0, or higher, which is free and easy to download, on their computer. The receiver has three options to retain the transcript: (1) save to the institution's document imaging system; (2) save electronically as a PDF document; or (3) print to paper.
