Transcripts

Your transcript provides your complete academic record while at Laurier. This will include any completed undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as any current registrations. All transcripts will have all grades included. Partial transcripts cannot be issued. Transcripts can be used as proof of registration or as a requirement for an application.

Alumni, current and past students can order transcripts online at wlu.ca/transcripts. Your order can be tracked online through your LORIS account, under the "Student Services" tab.

The cost per transcript is $15. It takes approximately three business days to process a request; up to five business days during peak periods. Transcripts can be mailed to whatever location you provide. You can also pick up your transcript at Service Laurier or have someone pick up your transcript on your behalf. For an extra charge, transcripts can be faxed or couriered.

Service Laurier provides the option for students to have a transcript printed directly with an in-person visit for an additional fee of $30. Alternatively, online orders can be rushed for the additional $30 fee. Online rushes will be processed the same day if submitted by 11 a.m.. We guarantee orders for transcripts requested after 11 a.m. will be processed by the following day.

If you have a hold on your student account, you will not be able to request a transcript until your hold is removed.

Transcript Legend

Course Number

A first digit of 1, 2, 3 or 4 normally corresponds to the year level in an undergraduate program. Honours level courses are usually identified by a first digit of 4 or a second digit above 4. All other undergraduate courses are at the General level.

A first digit of 5 or above represents a course at the graduate level.

Weight

The weighting factor is used to count course credits and calculate averages. A weight of 1.00 approximates a 26-week (two term) course of three lecture hours per week. Other weights are accordingly proportioned by duration and/or lecture hours.
