If you would like to request a transcript, need a graduation verification letter, have deferment/licensing forms our office needs to complete, or want to verify dates of enrollment and degree conferral, then please click on the link below which best describes your affiliation with the Harvard School of Dental Medicine:

Completed request forms (and additional documentation) should then be submitted via ONE of the delivery methods below:

  • Fax:  617-432-3881 / ATTN: Registrar Services, or
  • Email:, or
  • USPS: HSDM Registrar Services, 188 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115 (transcript requests & payment should be sent USPS, only)

Important Information- Please Read Carefully:

  1. Requests are generally processed 5-7 business days after being received by Registrar Services; however, during certain times of year (commencement, orientation, etc.) and for more complex requests, processing times may increase up to 10-15 business days.

  2. Repeatedly submitting the same request to different departments and/or not allowing enough processing time will only further delay the process.

  3. We do not use the National Student Clearinghouse for credentials verification; all credentialing requests are processed by Registrar Services.

  4. Requests must be made using one of the request forms above; incomplete forms and/or missing information will cause processing delays.

  5. We are unable to provide electronic transcripts or verifications at this time; email is not a delivery option.

  6. We do not provide phone or verbal verifications; all documents are returned via fax or standard USPS.

  7. We do not accept credit cards at this time; cash, money order or check only, please.
