Paper Transcripts (via mail or in person pick up):

If you are in no hurry and want the free option, or if you attended prior to 1982 or Boston State College follow the steps below:

Current Students

  • Order through the WISER system: Use your UMass Boston student email and password.
  • In person:  Go to the One Stop, Upper Level Campus Center.
  • The request will take at least two business days.


  • By fax:  Submit this Requesting Transcripts form (PDF) to 617.287.6242.
  • By snail mail:  Send Transcript Request Form to: Office of the Registrar, University of Massachusetts, 100 Morrissey Boulevard, Boston, MA 02125.

You cannot request a transcript via email because we need your signature. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 requires a student’s written consent to share their transcript with third parties.  In order for the Office of the Registrar to release an official copy of your transcript, you must submit your written and signed authorization.

Boston State College Transcripts

The University of Massachusetts Boston is the certifying agent for course work taken at Boston State College, which was closed on January 24, 1982.

Transcripts for all students enrolled at Boston State College prior to its closing will carry the heading of Boston State College. Transcripts for students who were enrolled at the University of Massachusetts Boston as a result of this merger will have a record that reflects work taken at both institutions.

Some of the students will still have transcripts that carry a Boston State heading.

Allow 7-10 business days to process requests for Boston State transcripts.
