College of Liberal Arts & Sciences

Complimentary Transcript Request

To encourage grant-seeking among the College’s graduate students, the College will cover the cost of ONE transcript for each graduate student applying for a grant or fellowship.  The grant or fellowship must require an official transcript as part of the application or acceptance process.

A student may only request this fee coverage once during their graduate career. The grant or fellowship must be taken while the individual is a student of KU. Employment applications, postdoctoral applications, and applications for fellowships or grants that will be used following graduation are not eligible.

Transcripts will not be provided for students who have active holds. Transcripts for work completed at other intuitions must be requested directly from that institution. The College will not cover any costs required by other institutions. Please allow 2-4 business days for processing.

To have this fee waived, please access and fill out the form. You can return the form in person to the COGA office in Strong Hall, room 102 or email the completed form to
