Scholarships, Awards & Transcripts

New at Western:  Need Based Awards will now appear on Transcripts

Need based awards are awarded to students based on a combination of academic merit, demonstration of financial need, and in some cases, non-academic requirements.  

Effective immediately, need based awards along with merit awards will display on your transcript.  To review the awards that will display on your transcript, log in to the Student Center and select Scholarships and Awards from under "My Academics".  If you do not want your Need Based Awards to appear on your transcript, select the “Do Not Display Need Based Awards on Transcripts” option.  You will be reminded with each online transcript request to confirm your selection for that order.  If you are ordering a transcript in person or by fax or mail and you wish to change whether or not Need Based Awards will display on your transcript, you must make the change through your Student Center prior to placing your order.

Please note:  Bursaries, which are awarded based on financial need only, do not appear on transcripts.  

If you have any questions regarding awards that show on your transcript please contact
