Transcript Requests

Request a Transcript

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are issued to designated institutions, individuals, agencies, etc., only with the student's written authorization. Official transcripts will be issued to current or former students in a sealed envelope. If the envelope is opened, it will not be accepted as official. Requests are processed in the order in which they are received; therefore, please allow 3 business days for processing.

Transcripts are released only after all outstanding balances are cleared in the Business Office. Thus students requesting the release of transcripts may wish to verify first with the Business Office that the transcript can be released. NOTE: The current semester's grades will not be on the transcript until the end of the semester.


Associated Fees

There is a $5.00 fee for each official transcript requested. Please remember that an OFFICIAL transcript in a sealed envelope sent directly to a student will no longer be considered official if opened by the student. You may submit and pay for your transcript request online. We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover, or American Express payments. 



Unofficial Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts can be faxed, mailed or scanned with written permission. You may order your unofficial transcripts online.
