There is a charge of £5 for each transcript requested (except intermediate transcripts which are free of charge for current students). Transcripts are normally issued within 3-5 working days of Registry receiving your request.
The transcript request portal can be used by alumni 1993 onwards and current students. Pre-1993 alumni should see Alumni from before 1993.
Requesting your transcript
To request a hard copy transcript, please follow the instructions below:
1) Log on to LSE for You with your LSE username and password.
Please note: If you graduated in the current calendar year, your login details for LSE for You will expire in December. In order to continue to log into LSE for You, you must create an LSE Public Account before December. In LSE for You, select the "Account Management" option on the left, then select "Manage LSE Public Account". The username of your public account will be a personal email address (e.g. gmail.com, hotmail.com, etc). Your public account will be activated within 24 hours.
If you graduated after the current calendar year and no longer have access to LSE for You, email Registry to request an invitation to set up an LSE Public Account. You can request transcripts once the account is activated.
2) Go to the Certification and Documentation menu and select 'Transcript Request'. Former students who were required to set up an LSE Public Account may find that this can take a few hours for this option to become available.
3) Follow the instructions to complete your order, including selecting a delivery/collection option as listed below.
Standard post: simply enter the recipient's address on the web form.
Collection in person from the Student Services Centre: simply enter ‘Collection’ in the ‘Address Line 1’ field.
Email / Fax: enter ‘Email to’ followed by the email address, or ‘Fax to’ followed by the fax number, in the ‘Address Line 1’ field. You can then enter a postal address from ‘Address Line 2’ onwards if you also wish a hard copy to be posted to you. If you do not enter a postal address, the hard copy will be confidentially destroyed.
Collection by courier from the Student Services Centre: enter ‘Courier’ in the ‘Address Line 1’ field, followed by the name and address of the recipient. You should then arrange for a courier (we recommend that you use DHL) to collect your transcript from the Student Services Centre on your behalf. Please ensure you provide the courier with your name and student ID so that they are able to collect the right documents. Please also remember that it will take up to three working days from the date of order for the transcripts to be available for collection.
If you are having problems accessing the transcript request option once you have logged in to LSE for You, please email Registry.
Please note that it is not possible for us to complete or include forms from LSAC or other institutions with your transcript. However, if you need to include an application reference number with your transcript, please enter it in ‘Address Line 1’ before completing any other address details from ‘Address Line 2’ onwards. This information will then appear on your transcript.
Master’s and diploma transcripts for programmes undertaken from the 1997/8 academic year onwards will show the marks students obtained in individual modules. Transcripts relating to studies from before 1997/8 will not show marks obtained in individual modules.
LLM: LSE transcripts for the LLM programme can be ordered via the Transcript Request Portal, but will not show marks for modules taken before the 2003/4 academic year. To request a transcript showing marks for modules taken before 2003/4, please contact the University of London.
MSc in Health Policy, Planning and Financing: Students who graduated after the 2002/3 academic year should contact Registry to request a transcript. Students who graduated before the 2002/03 academic year should contact the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to request a transcript.
