A transcript is a sealed document containing a record of all the courses taken by a student by term in the MBA Program along with his/her final grades and the degree received, if applicable. To ensure the confidentiality of these records, requests must be made in writing bearing the student's signature for verification. Please note that transcripts cannot be sent via fax or electronically via e-mail.
A certificate of attendance is a letter confirming a student's attendance and degree signed by the Registrar and bearing a raised seal. Because it contains no confidential information, this certificate can be ordered by simply e-mailing our office (registrar+hbs.edu) or calling us at 617.495.6247 (choose option 1). A certificate may be sent by fax or it may be emailed as a PDF attachment, but please note that the seal will not be visible on the facsimile nor on the PDF. Certificates of attendance are provided free of charge.
Please allow three business days for processing. Alumni records dating back to 1980 or earlier may require additional processing time. Rush delivery via Federal Express is available for $10 per address.
Transcripts may not be faxed. If you require urgent confirmation of your attendance and degree, please e-mail our office (registrar+hbs.edu) to request a certificate of attendance.
