How do I request my transcripts?

To request your transcripts, you must go into LSAC/CAS and add each undergraduate and graduate institution you have attended. This includes but isn’t limited to work done at community colleges or as a dual-enrollment student in high school regardless of whether or not this status appears on your Penn State transcripts. For more information about required transcripts, visit Requesting Transcripts.

CAS will generate a Transcript Request Form for each institution.  You must print and sign the form and request your transcripts from each school by following its transcript request procedures. IMPORTANT NOTE: CAS does not request your transcripts for you; you must follow each institution’s rules for requesting your own transcripts.

How do I request Penn State transcripts?

To request Penn State transcripts, you can go into LSAC/CAS and under Penn State, you should see an option to request transcripts electronically or  via the Transcript Request Form.  If you select to request them electronically, you will be directed to Parchment Exchange that Penn State uses to send transcripts, pay the $5 transcript fee and select LSAC as the recipient.  If you want to request your trasnscripts in person, you can print the Transcripts Request Form and take it to the Office of the University Registrar in 112 Shields with $15 cash, money order, or check. You need to request that Penn State send one copy of your transcripts directly to LSAC at the address on the form.  See details at Penn State Official Transcripts

How long does it take?

Transcripts can take up to two weeks to process at LSAC so plan ahead! Request your transcripts after grades post for the semester before you plan to apply. For example, if you plan to apply to law school in the fall of your senior year and you are not taking classes during the summer, you can request your transcripts after grades post at the end of the spring semester of your junior year.
