Ordering tips

Order after final grades are available

If you order your transcript at the end of the quarter, it may not include final grades for the term. To ensure a complete transcript, you should avoid ordering for 14 days after the end of the quarter. This includes the last week of class through the week after the end of the term.

Factor in processing fees

You’ll pay a processing fee every time you order an official transcript. If you’d like your transcripts sent to multiple institutions, you’ll need to make separate requests. You can use a credit card, debit card, or Visa gift card to pay these fees.

Keep your transcript handy

Once you’re in the platform, you’ll be able to store a copy of your transcript in your Parchment account. You won’t be able to mail it, but you’ll have it there for reference.

Unofficial transcripts

You can always request an unofficial transcript free of charge by emailing the registrar team at [email protected]. Keep in mind that unofficial transcripts do not include the registrar’s signature or the school seal.
