Pick Up in Office
Students presenting a driver’s license, passport, or Vanderbilt ID may pick up a transcript in the Office of the University Registrar during regular business hours.
If the student is unable to pick the transcript up, and a secure electronic PDF transcript will not suffice, the student must make prior arrangements with our office by signing a Third Party Release authorizing another individual to pick up the transcript. The release should be sent directly to our office the day before the transcript will be picked up. The individual who is designated to pick up the transcript will be required to present a driver’s license or passport to pick up the transcript.
Special delivery is available through Federal Express if you provide a Federal Express account number, the destination name, street address, phone number, and type of delivery (Priority, Overnight, or 2 Day). Federal Express will not deliver to a P.O. Box.
