In compliance with FERPA guidelines, all requests for transcripts must be in writing and come from the student. Official transcripts may not be requested by parents, siblings, etc. Requests must include the student's signature. If you want to submit a request by email, you must email a signed and scanned transcript request form to email@example.com.
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.
There is no charge for regular transcripts. Allow a minimum of 3 to 5 business days for processing. There is a $25 fee for rush transcripts. These will be processed the next business day, and are available for pick-up or can be mailed via first-class mail.
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: No transcript request will be honored until the financial account has been given clearance by the business and finance office.
