Ordering Transcripts

information iconImportant Information about ordering transcripts:

  • Transcripts are confidential records and may only be ordered by the student whose record is being requested.
  • Because your original signature must be included, a transcript order cannot be accepted over the phone or email. Computer generated signatures are not valid.
  • Transcripts will not be released until holds on accounts are cleared.
  • Transcripts held for pick up in our office must be claimed within 30 days. Picture identification is required to pick up transcripts.
  • Transcripts held for current session grades or degrees are mailed approximately two weeks after the end of the term.

Please allow two working days for processing your transcript order. Allow extra time for processing at peak periods (end of semester and commencement).
