Most Important Tips:


  • Once your transcript request has been processed, you will receive an automated email confirming your order. (Please provide your email address on the transcript release form) All requests are processed within 5 - 7 business days. Please allow 6-13 business days for receipt of the transcript via US Postal Service.
  • The Office of the Registrar is not responsible for incorrect mail or email addresses provided to us in the original transcript request. If an incorrect address is provided to us and your transcript has been processed, an additional order will need to be submitted.
  • Faxed/emailed transcripts may not be considered “official” dependent upon the institution requesting the transcript. Be sure to verify this before submitting the transcript request. If your request has been processed under these circumstances a new request will be needed.
