Transcripts/Certifications

Official Transcripts 

Official Transcripts with a Georgetown University seal and signature of the University Registrar for students and graduates of Georgetown University can be requested as detailed below:

Official Transcripts

Effective March 21, 2022

Official transcripts must be requested via Parchment (new window). You will need to create an account with Parchment to place your order. You may use your account to track the status of your transcript and to upload any documentation that must accompany your transcript.

1) Qatar students/alumni should select “main campus” as their location. However, they should not select the “pick up” option, unless they are actually in DC on the main campus. If students/alumni want the digital transcript sent directly to them they must give their GU email address in the delivery option.

2) If a student/alumnus needs a paper transcript in Qatar (the “pick up” option), they should email the Associate Registrar at GU-Qatar the completed signed Transcript Request Form. The transcript will be placed in the GUQ student mail boxes in the basement of the building for pick up (alumni should contact the Associate Registrar to make an appointment to collect their transcript).  Please note that, depending on the office workload, it may take 7 to 10 calendar days to process these requests. 

3) Please note that Parchment allows you to add a document, such as the Commons App college report or LSAT application, to your transcript request.

4)  Transcript requests are not charged to you directly (there was concern as the demonstration video showed a payment requirement).

Diploma Attestation for Qatar

For attestation to work in Qatar,  the GU-Q graduate needs to bring the original diploma and translation to the office of the Associate Registrar for GU-Qatar (room 1D13 in the GU-Q building). S/he will make copies and certify the copies, then place them in a stamped sealed envelope. The originals together with the  copies in the sealed envelope are then taken to the Qatar Foundation Government Affairs office to be stamped by QF. The stamped certified copies can then be taken to the relevant Ministry for attestation.

Confirmation of Enrollment / Graduation letters 

GU-Q students who require a letter of confirmation of enrollment as a full-time student / graduate should request this from the Associate Registrar for GU-Q by email. The following information is required:

  • Full names (as on diploma for graduates)
  • GU student ID number
  • Date started at GU-Q (e.g. Fall 2016)
  • Expected graduation date (e.g. May 2020), or exact graduation date if graduated (e.g. 9 May 2020)
  • Major, certificates, minors (if declared)
  • Language(s) of foreign proficiency (state if completed or still in progress)

If the letter is for the purposes of obtaining a visa for travel to another country, then in addition to the above information the following is required:

  • Name of country to be visited
  • Dates of travel (start and end dates)
  • Purpose of travel.

Please note that, depending on the workload in the office, requests for letters will normally be processed within 5 working days. Letters of enrollment will be placed in the student mailboxes in the basement of the GU-Q building. Graduation confirmation letters will be scanned and emailed to the requestor.
