What is a Transcript?

A transcript is a comprehensive record of an individual's academic progress, including transferred courses, credit earned by exam, and degrees awarded. It contains confidential information. In compliance with federal privacy laws, a student's signature is required to release transcripts.

Note: If you attended before 1994, eTranscripts would not be an option. Please choose "Mail" or "Pick Up" when submitting an official transcript request.

How to order an Official Transcript

Each transcript order will cost $3.90 and will grant 30 days of access. Below is a user guide to assist with any questions through the eTranscript ordering process.
