Transcripts & Institution Evaluations


Transcripts contain all academic information about a student, including classes, grades, class rank (pre-doctoral students only), GPA and degree(s).  Graduating students, please note that your degree and graduation date will not appear on your transcript until all final grades have been recorded and the appropriate/official graduation date has passed.  Transcripts include the signature of the School of Dental Medicine Registrar and the Boston University seal.

Requests are normally processed within three business days.  There is no charge for this service.
