Frequently Asked Questions

  • The student’s full name, birthdate and social security number
  • Transfer credit from other post-secondary educational institutions the student attended
  • Comments about graduation honors the student has received from Sweet Briar College
  • All courses for which the student was registered, in chronological order, from the date of matriculation through the most recently concluded term, showing the subject and number of each course, its title, grade and credits

  • Any degree conferred by the College, showing the major(s), minor(s) and date conferred
  • The signature of the registrar and the date the transcript was produced

Can I have a résumé or other personal document enclosed with my transcript?

No. Only documents that originate in the Office of the Registrar and which have been certified as accurate may be enclosed with transcripts. Mailing and routing cards from graduate schools and professional agencies may be enclosed.

Can I order the transcript and then pick it up in the Office of the Registrar?

Yes. We will hold your order for two weeks. When you come in to pick it up, you may be asked to produce photo identification. If you have not picked it up within two weeks, we will mail the transcript to the home address you provided on your order. If you did not provide a home address, the transcript will be voided.

If I order one transcript will I be able to make photocopies of it?

Sweet Briar transcripts are printed on a paper stock with a secured background, a latent image that will cause a photocopy to display the words “Copy” or “Void,” obscuring the printed transcript information. This is done to guarantee that only official, original transcripts of academic records are distributed.

Can I order a student copy of my transcript?

Yes, student copies are considered unofficial, but they may be used to review your transcript for personal or other reasons.

I am currently registered at Sweet Briar. How can I make sure this term's grades will appear on my transcript when I order it?

Indicate in your written request that your transcript should not be produced until the current term’s grades are posted.

I have inspected my transcript and some of the information is incorrect. What should I do?

Contact the Office of the Registrar and we will direct you, if necessary, to the office that is the source of the information you believe to be incorrect.

I attended other schools before coming to Sweet Briar College. Can I order their transcripts from you?

No. You must obtain official transcripts from each school’s registrar.
