Official Transcripts can be ordered online via the Web 24/7 through the National Student Clearinghouse at Transcript Ordering.  All major credit cards are accepted for online orders.

Official Transcripts can also be ordered by mailing a signed Transcript Request Form, to Registrar's Office.  Please note that the Registrar's Office is currently closed but all services are available online or by email, registrar@cwsl.edu. If you choose to send a signed, written request, please note that the request may take up to two weeks to process.  For quicker response, please use the National Student Clearing House.

IF you decide to mail in a request, please include:

All Requests will be processed upon receipt of the payment and signed form. Requests are usually filled within 2-3 business days. More time may be required during busy periods.

Please note: Transcripts not picked up within 30 days will be discarded and will have to be reordered.

Current students wishing an unofficial PDF copy of their transcript may log on to the student portal. You will need your CWSL email address, password, and student ID. If you have forgotten your student ID you may look it up online. PDF copies of transcripts for Alumni are no longer available.

Please be aware that each trimester there is a two-week period prior to the release of grades during which transcripts are not available.  (This applies to current students only). Please contact the Registrar's Office if you have any questions.

The Registrar's office will not make copies of transcripts issued by other schools which may be part of your student file.
