Official Records and Transcript Requests

An official transcript is the official record of a student's academic achievement at Lake Washington Institute of Technology. Current and former LWTech students may request official transcripts one of three ways:

Unofficial Transcripts

If you attended LWTech and your last quarter is prior to Fall 2015, we no longer offer unofficial options for those transcripts. Please fill out the form in one of the options above to order your official transcript.

Current LWTech students can view and print unofficial transcripts via the LionsLink Student View
