• Transcripts Requests

    Privacy

    A student's educational records are private. Transcripts of records can be issued to the student and to other persons as allowed by FERPA only (please see the Student Policy Manual Confidential Information and Privacy Policy section for more information on FERPA). Requests from any other party must include a release/authorization duly executed by the student.

    Transcript Types

     All transcripts (paper & electronic) issued by the Office of the Registrar are official.

    Electronic transcripts are digitally signed secure PDF documents available via Piperline and are available to students who attended in 1986 or later.
