The registrar’s office mails academic transcripts upon written authorization from the student. There is no fee charged for students currently attending class at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM). A fee of $5 for each transcript requested is charged to students who are no longer attending or who have graduated. Transcripts are not released for students with financial holds. Although we attempt to process transcript orders within three working days of their receipt in our office, during peak times it may take longer. Allow sufficient time for your request.
