Transcript Policies

  • If you need a transcript sent after a Grade Change is made, please confirm the grade in Self-Service before ordering your transcript.

  • Picture ID is required to pick up transcripts in person.

    NOTE: Transcripts held for student pick-up will be held for a maximum of 30 days. If they are not picked up within this time frame, they will be destroyed and you will not be refunded. A new order and fee will be required.

  • The first two transcripts (lifetime) a student can request are FREE. However, FREE requests are not available through Parchment. FREE orders must be done in person at the Admissions and Records counter as a 21-business day request. These orders take significantly longer to process and will be mailed within four to five (4-5) weeks.
