Free-of-charge paper copy of the transcript of studies

If you are an attending student (including exchange students, students under the Flexible Study Right Scheme or those completing non-degree or Open University studies) with a valid study right, you can receive one official printed transcript of studies free of charge per academic term from Student Services. You can collect the transcript in person or order it to be sent by mail.

Exchange students can receive the transcript also during the following term after their study right has expired. In any other case, if you do not request a transcript during the term, you cannot order one retroactively.

Paid paper copy of the transcript of studies

In addition to a free-of-charge digitally verified transcript, everyone who has completed studies at the University of Helsinki can request a paper copy of their transcript of studies for a fee at Kaisa House, Viikki, Kumpula and Meilahti Student Services. See contact details for Student Services.

As the Student service points do not handle cash, you will have to pay the transcript fee in advance. You can pay by cash, debit or credit card or with your student card at the UniCafe locations listed below. You can also pay the fee to the University's account.

You can retrieve your transcript from Student Services or order it to be sent by mail. Bring a receipt of the payment with you if you fetch the transcript. If you want the transcript mailed to you, enclose the receipt with your order.
