You may now request transcripts online through the Parchment Exchange portal using a credit card*. Go to the Parchment site and if it is your first time you can create a new account. On subsequent visits, you can use the account you created previously. Follow the steps to search for your recipient, select electronic or physical transcripts, and pay with a credit card. Your card will not be charged until your transcript is processed.
Alternatively, you may request a transcript by completing the Transcript Form and mailing or faxing it to the registrar*. Your signature is required. Requests cannot be taken over the phone.There is a $7.50 processing fee charged for each copy. In an emergency, a transcript may be faxed for an additional $3.00, in addition to the $7.50 mailed copy.
Mail the form to:
Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
2121 Sheridan Road
Evanston, IL 60201
Or, fax it to:
Attn: Registrar's Office
Students and recent alums can download or print an unofficial copy of their transcript free of charge from the myGETS portal. In order to access the unofficial transcript, students and alums must log in using their current myGETS login information.
* Please note that Garrett-Evangelical is only authorized to release transcripts for graduate-level coursework. Those needing records for Basic Course of Study should contact the Course of Study office at the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
Apostille Service for Transcripts
The registrar’s office is willing to submit an apostille request on the student’s behalf when needed. Transcripts needing an apostille are notarized on campus and then submitted to the Illinois Secretary of State for certification. Additional information can be found below.
Because the apostille requires special handling, transcripts needing the apostille cannot be requested through our online portal. To request a transcript with apostille, complete both a Transcript Request Form as well as the Application for Apostille and submit both forms via mail to the registrar’s office. Include a check for $7.50 payable to Garrett-Evangelical, a check for $2.00 payable to Secretary of State, and a self-addressed stamped envelope. A pre-paid Express Mail, Priority Mail, FedEx, or UPS envelope may also be used. These may be addressed directly to the intended recipient.
