Academic Forms & Transcripts

Transcript Requests

The University of King’s College and Dalhousie University have teamed up with MyCredsTM, a renowned expert in digital credentials, and a platform that certifies, shares and validates academic credentials. Documents issued via the network are authentic, tamper-proof and legally recognized.

All current and former King’s students can access and share transcripts digitally through the MyCredsTM learner portal, as the most timely and accessible transcript option; however, official hard copy transcripts are still available upon request.

Requesting, receiving and sharing transcripts

All current and former students should expect a wait time of 1-2 business days for a digital transcript issued via MyCreds or 5-7 days for a physical copy transcript. Students must pay a fee of $10 for the release of their transcript through either of these services. A priority physical copy transcript service is available for $15.

Current Students

All current King’s students, including Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) and One-Year Bachelor of Journalism students, will initiate requests through Dal Online under Web for Students > Student Records > Request Official Transcripts. For information on how to request transcripts through Dal Online, how to share transcripts with third parties and other topics, please visit Dalhousie’s MyCredsTM page or review the information below.

Former Students

For former students in the Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) and the One-Year Bachelor of Journalism programs, please initiate requests through the King’s Registrar’s Office via one of the two following request options:

For former King’s students in Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Music, Master of Fine Arts or Master of Journalism programs without access to Dal Online:

  • Submit your transcript request via the Dalhousie Registrar’s Office UStore. The UStore is only to be used by former students who are not able to access Dal Online. Please allow 1-2 business days processing time for a digital transcript and 5-7 business days processing time for a hard copy transcript.


Is there a cost to have a document issued through MyCredsTM?

Transcripts will be uploaded to MyCredsTM before charging a fee. Once the transcript is uploaded, students will then have to purchase a share credit for each copy they wish to send. They will not have to request a new transcript for each share.

Document Fee Share Period
Digital Official Transcript $10 plus tax Pay per share
Printed Official Transcript $10, $15 for priority service Pay per copy

What happens after I have made my transcript request?

Digital transcript orders are processed and transmitted from King’s or Dalhousie (depending on your degree type) to MyCredsTM within 1-2 business days. When your digital transcript is ready, you will receive an email notification from MyCredsTM. You can use the sign-in link in this email or log in via Institution on the MyCredsTM website.

You will be prompted to use your Dalhousie NetID (email) and password.

You will be prompted to provide your mobile number to set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

You will see your issued transcript on your Documents landing page. You must purchase at least one share credit to access your transcript. The share credit can then be used to share your transcript with a third party or yourself via an email address. Additional share credits are available for purchase.

Note: If it is your first time using the MyCredsTM Learner portal, you will be prompted to register for a MyCredsTM account. You will also need to set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) with your mobile phone. To add or update your mobile number select Account Settings in the top right corner.

I just want to download a PDF for myself, can I do that?

While you will not be able to download a PDF of your transcript in MyCredsTM, a downloadable PDF of your unofficial transcript is available in Dal Online free of charge. You can access this under Web for Students > Student Records > Academic Records.

How do I sign in to MyCredsTM?

If you have the email notification you received from MyCredsTM when the document was issued: follow the link in the email notification and use your NetID and password.

If you no longer have the email notification you received from MyCredsTM please allow 1 business day for processing and then:

Navigate to the MyCredsTM sign in page.

Use the Sign in with your Education Provider button and select ‘Dalhousie and UKing’s’ from the list.

You will be prompted to use your NetID and password.

How do I send my transcript to someone?

The MyCredsTM Learner portal works on the premise that the document is yours, you are in full control of it, and thus you “share” access to it with others.

To share your digital transcript, you must pay the $10 share fee for each unique share by buying share credits (see below for more details). If you don’t have any share credits, the SHARE button will be grey. At least one share must be purchased to initially access your transcript.

When you have purchased a share credit, the SHARE button will become blue.

Select the SHARE button to send your transcript to your chosen destination.

Note: should there be any updates to a document, the third-party recipient will immediately be able to access the updated version.
