Official copies of transcripts are those sent directly from the Office of the Registrar to a third party.
Unofficial copies of transcripts stamped "issued to student," are those given directly to the student in person or by mail.
Official copies issued to students are in a signed, sealed envelope. Breaking the seal makes the transcript unofficial.
There are two ways to request transcripts:
Transcripts can be obtained by following this link to the National Student Clearinghouse. Follow the onscreen prompts.
You may follow the instructions listed below:
Federal regulations prohibit the processing of transcripts without a written request from the student or former student. E-mailed requests cannot be accepted. You may submit a completed transcript request form or letter.

No transcript will be issued for a student or former student whose financial obligation to the college has not been satisfied.
