• IB Program Graduates - Requesting Transcripts

    How can I send my scores to my school after I have graduated from LWHS?

    After a student graduates from LWHS, we are no longer able to send official copies of your exam scores to your colleges and universities. Please read through the information below regarding sending official copies of your scores to your school for credit. All transcript requests must be made through IB, not LWHS.

    All IB Diploma Program graduates must request their transcripts to be sent to institutions directly by placing a request through rrs.ibo.org. A fee will be charged for each additional request that is submitted, regardless of whether any previous requests have been made by that student. 

    A Note Regarding Payment to IB -

    • All requests include a processing fee of $17 USD for each transcript you request.
    • The IB does not accept cash or postal orders.
    • Please note that the IB does not accept American Express. If your payment is not accepted, please contact your card provider to authorize the international transaction.

    How/When will the university receive my transcript?

    If your chosen institution opted to receive IB transcripts via a secure IB website, they will receive yours as soon as the results are released (or for graduates, as soon as the IB has processed your order). Otherwise, they will be mailed a paper transcript.

    Please note that due to the volume of requests received during the peak months of December and January and July through September, transcript requests may take longer to process. The IB is not responsible for delays in the postal service or in processing transcripts at universities. This process may take up to 14 working days.

    It is the institution that decides on the following:

    1. The format in which it receives an IB transcript (electronic or paper format).
    2. The receiving address for the transcript. This is usually a general/centralized admissions office.

    Therefore, if you need to check if your chosen university has received your transcript, please check with the university admissions office first. If they are unable to locate it there, then please contact IB Answers. When you contact us please include your name, school where you obtained your diploma, university, and the date that you requested for your results to help us process your request faster.

    Important tips for students submitting transcripts

    Tip 1: It is best to check the university’s admission policy before placing a transcript request. Some universities will only accept undergraduate applications through a centralized admission center. For example, candidates applying to Oxford University in the UK are required to complete an online UCAS application form. When submitting a transcript request for UCAS, if you have your 10-digit application number, you can include it in the transcript request form (under Notes if a request is done via rrs.ibo.org).

    Tip 2: If your transcript was sent electronically and the university informs you that they are unable to access your record, please ensure that you have provided them with the correct information (spelling of your name, date of birth, and session).

    Tip 3: Under no circumstances should candidates reveal their PIN to universities or admission centers.
