Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much does it cost to order my transcript?
A.  Transcripts are provided to all students (current, former and alumni) at no charge.  This includes mailing, so please do not list your credit card on the form (unless you are requesting to have your transcript sent via Fed Ex). If you have an outstanding balance from a request made prior to July 1, 2005, your current request will be processed, and you will receive notification of the total amount you owe. Payment will need to be made by check as we do not accept credit or debit cards as a means of payment.

Q. Can my transcript be sent to me by email?
A. Yes, an unofficial transcript can be sent by fax, or by email.  If you require an official the transcript must be sent by mail.

Q. How long will it take for my transcript to arrive?
A.  Requests are typically processed within 2 - 3 business days.  However we are currently receiving a high volume of requests.  The processing time may take up to one week. When transcripts are sent by mail, we use standard first class mail.    Mailing time will depend on how long it typically takes the Post Office to deliver mail to the address you provided.

Q. Can the mailing be expedited?
A.  Yes.  We typically use Fed Ex for expedited mailing. If you would like to have your transcript sent by Fed Ex, you must provide a credit card number and expiration date for the Fed Ex fee.  There is space provided on the transcript request form.  Fed Ex cannot deliver to a Post Office Box.  You must include a street address for the recipient.  If you have more than one recipient, please indicate which transcript should be sent via Fed Ex.
