Transcripts are confidential records and must be ordered by the student whose record is being requested. (No email orders please.)
About your transcript request:
- Payment of $16 per copy must be made at the time of order. Currently enrolled students may apply the charges to their university bill.
- Transcripts released to students are stamped "Issued to Student." Some institutions will not accept transcripts unless mailed by the Registrar.
- For transcripts sent to more than two addresses, complete a separate form or attach a sheet listing additional addresses.
- Transcripts will not be released until delinquent accounts have been paid.
- 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 214 Enrollment Services Center must be claimed within 30 days. Picture identification is required to pick up transcripts.
Payment must be made at the time of the order (credit card orders are considered payment).
