Students are entitled to receive five official copies of their transcript (record of study) free of charge within six months after completion of the academic requirements of the program at the Rothberg International School (RIS), provided that all outstanding tuition and dormitory fees have been paid and all library books have been returned. To make sure all outstanding fees have been paid, please contact the financial department at RIS before you leave.
After this six-month period, students can obtain transcripts via mail (or unofficially via fax) for a fee of US $15 per transcript. Students who order five transcripts or more on the same request form are charged US $15 per transcript for the first four copies ordered and US$5 for each additional transcript (for example, five transcripts would cost US$65 and ten transcripts US$90).
When to Expect your Transcripts
Transcripts are sent via regular post from Jerusalem and can take up to 30 days to arrive. Once they are sent out, the Jerusalem office has no way to track them. Contact your local RIS office if they are taking longer to arrive. If you would like an unofficial copy, the Jerusalem office can fax it. Make sure to enter the fax number in the appropriate line on the request form. You still have to pay US$15 for the faxed transcript.
If you are in a hurry, the Jerusalem office can FEDEX the transcripts which takes three business days. Note that FEDEX is much more expensive, sometimes around US$80 per package. If you are sending multiple transcripts via FEDEX, we recommend sending them to your home first and sending them domestically from there. To have your transcripts sent by FEDEX, you must create an online FEDEX account ( http://www.fedex.com ), and then enter your FEDEX account number and name of the FEDEX account holder in the appropriate box on the transcript request form.
