Frequently Asked Questions:

I don't remember my student ID number. Do I need it to order a transcript?

No. If you don't know your ID number, you may enter the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number instead where prompted in the Parchment portal. If you don't know your ID number and don't have an SSN, enter 0's in the field to continue placing your order. We will contact you if we have issues locating your record.

Do I need my student account login information to place an order?

No. Parchment will ask you to enter an email address to create an account if you do not already have one. This account is unrelated to your Wittenberg student account. We recommend using a personal email address, as Wittenberg email accounts expire after graduation or non-attendance.

Can I order an unofficial transcript?

No. Wittenberg does not process unofficial transcripts; only official academic transcripts can be ordered.

Current students may view an unofficial transcript by logging into Self-Service (click the graduation cap on the left-hand menu, then select Unofficial Transcript).

Transcripts are only considered official for the first recipient. Once a paper transcript's envelope seal is broken, or an electronic transcript is downloaded, it is considered to be an unofficial copy and may be used wherever an unofficial copy is accepted.

My electronic transcript download link expired, can you resend my transcript?

No. The link for an electronic transcript is only active for 30 days after it has been received by the recipient. Please confirm with your recipient that the transcript has been accessed and saved before the link expires. If the transcript link has expired, a new request must be placed.

The PDF file may be password protected for security. To save an unofficial copy that is not password protected for your records, select Print, then Print to PDF to save a new file.
