Transcript Request

There are 3 ways to request official transcripts, online, by mail or in person as shown below.

Online

Order your transcript online through Parchment Exchange – It is quick and easy.

Check with the receiving institution which format they would like the official transcript to be sent: electronically or by mail.

If you have holds/blocks on your account you may not able to receive your transcript until those blocks or holds are resolved.

***If you order a transcript to be sent to your personal e-mail account, it will be considered an unofficial transcript***

You are emailed a Parchment confirmation when your order is complete. Check your order details via your Parchment account.

You will need to provide your student ID number when ordering your transcript. If you do not know you student ID number, you can look it up here.

Forms and attachments are not supported by Parchment. To include attachments with your request, order your official transcript in person or by mail

You can request to have your transcript sent electronically, by mail or by mail via FedEx overnight. Mail and FedEx orders are sent out by Parchment. Transcript orders are approved by college staff Monday-Friday. Orders are not processed on weekends or holidays.

This does not include delivery time which will depend on where the transcripts are being sent and timeliness of the US Postal Service.
