Transcripts are confidential records and must be ordered by the student whose record is being requested.

About your transcripts:

  • Transcripts will not be released until holds on accounts are cleared.
  • Transcripts held for current session grades or degrees are mailed approximately two weeks after the end of the term.
  • Transcripts held for pick up in our office must be claimed within 30 days. Picture identification is required to pick up transcripts.
  • Because your original signature must be included, a transcript order cannot be accepted over the phone. Computer generated signatures are not valid.
  • Please allow two working days for processing your transcript order. Allow extra time for processing at peak periods (end of semester and commencement).
