Transcripts and Enrollment Verification

Graduate and GLS Students

Transcripts

An official transcript is a comprehensive record of a student's academic record at Duke Kunshan University. Students can request official transcripts for personal use, or request them to be released to a third party. Only one recipient may be identified per request form. It is possible to stipulate that transcripts be withheld until grades and/or degrees have been posted.  

For Chinese and non-US international students, please request official hard copies of the transcripts by completing this form and sending it to dku-registrar@dukekunshan.edu.cn by email or mailing it to the following address:

Academic Building Room 3124, Duke Kunshan University
No. 8 Duke Avenue, Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, China, 215316

Students can also request an electronic transcript by completing the email transcript request form, print and sign the completed form, and email the scan copy to dku-registrar@dukekunshan.edu.cn as an attachment. The recipient box on the form should include the name of the recipient, Student ID number or Duke Unique ID# (just in case the name is same as other students), and the email address to which the transcript should be sent.

For US students, please use DukeHub for the submission of transcript requests. More information can be found here.

Enrollment Verification

The Enrollment Verification documents students' enrollment status in the current and past terms. Enrollment Verifications are frequently needed to verify eligibility for visa applications, health insurance coverage or for certain types of financial aid.

Official enrollment verifications are available through the Office of the University Registrar at no cost.
