The fee for a student’s official transcript is $5 per copy, which must be paid before the transcript can be sent or picked up. There is an additional fee for rush transcripts. Official transcripts can be sent directly to a school, employer, or other agency or issued to a student, provided it remains sealed until sent to the recipient. An official transcript will bear the official seal and signature of the University.

Please note that a minimum of three (3) working days should be allowed for the processing of official transcripts, and that the average processing time is five (5) days. A delay may be encountered during the two weeks preceding and the two weeks immediately following the beginning and end of each semester. Additional time is needed during these periods to accommodate the process of adding degree statements and certification statements to transcripts.
In addition, as a result of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, transcript requests must be made in writing by the student (official transcripts may not be requested by parents, siblings, etc.); requests must include the student’s signature; and requests must be received by mail, fax or in person.
Email requests will not be processed as the student’s signature is required for the release of records. Finally, no transcript request will be honored until the financial account has been given clearance by the business and finance office.
