Requesting a Transcript

How to request a transcript:

There are two types of transcripts, official and unofficial. Unofficial transcripts are generated primarily for your own records or for internal college use. An official transcript must be requested in writing or through the National Student Clearinghouse Website. (An additional $2.25 fee does apply for National Student Clearinghouse services.)

Your transcript can be requested online here.

The transcript request form can be printed from the following link:
