Ordering Narrative Evaluations

Transcript & Evaluation Information

There are two types of documents Fairhaven students and graduates hold:

1. Western transcripts. This document is an official traditional transcript with grades and degree (majors, minors, certificates) listed. To order these official transcripts, please visit the Western Registrar's Office website.

2. Fairhaven Narrative Evaluations. This document is supplemental to official transcripts and contains student self-evaluations alongside faculty narrative evaluations. To obtain this document please read the Narrative Evaluation order process below.

Narrative Evaluation Options

Graduates may need OFFICIAL or UNOFFICAL evaluations. Official evaluations cost $10 to process and come in PDF or paper form. Unofficial evaluations are obtained by the graduate through the Western login and can be printed personally.

*Printed Name Information: All transcripts and evaluations will have a person's legal name printed. If you have a name change and need that to occur before purchasing transcripts, please review the following information.  Registrar's Office name change information. LGTBQ+ name change information.

Official Narrative Evaluation Order Process

Official Evaluations: Cost - $10/transcript for email (please see notice for electronic order below) or USPS mail orders. These are processed by the Fairhaven Registrar and can be sent to the person ordering or directly to the requesting organization. Detailed information about the request will be gathered during the order process. 

NOTICE FOR ELECTRONIC ORDERS - Please note that your Fairhaven Official Narrative Evaluations are sent as a PDF attachment in a standard email. Some institutions do not accept official documents in this way. Please research the exact requirements for your receiving institution to ensure that your narrative evaluations will be accepted, we do not know the requirements for all schools. If a PDF will not be accepted by your receiving institution, please order a mail copy of your narrative evaluations.
