How to Get a Brandeis Transcript While Abroad
Brandeis University students seeking a copy of their Brandeis University transcript for summer jobs, scholarships, etc. should contact the Office of the Registrar.
Transfer of Credit For Work Done Abroad
Prior to leaving your program abroad it is imperative that you order at least ONE copy of your Official Transcript to be sent to the Office of Study Abroad:
J. Scott Van Der Meid
Office of Study Abroad
MS 073, Usdan 169
Waltham, MA 02454-9110 USA
If you are planning to apply to graduate school, please remember that your Brandeis transcript does NOT show your grades for study abroad. You will have to provide copies of both your Brandeis transcript and your study abroad transcript with every graduate school application.
If you are directly enrolled in a foreign university, additional individually-sealed official transcripts may be sent to the same address to be kept on file until you need them to be sent to graduate, law or medical schools.
If you are abroad through an American-based program you can order original transcripts on an as needed basis to be sent directly from the American sponsor institution.
