Requesting a Transcript
Transcript request forms and additional information are available on the central records web site, and in the central records office. No transcripts will be issued without a student’s written permission and signature. It can take up to ten business days to prepare a transcript.
Students are billed a one-time transcript fee, which entitles them to request transcripts both while enrolled and in the future at no additional charge. Students are responsible for expedited shipping costs.
Maintenance of Student Files
Students should inspect their academic records before leaving the College. Academic records are scanned for permanent archiving after students leave the College. Requests for changes to academic records may not be considered beyond sixty (60) days after the student’s final semester of attendance.
- Students who have outstanding financial obligations to the College may not receive official transcripts, nor will transcripts be issued to a third party.
- Transcripts will not be issued for any student who has defaulted on any federal student loan until the College has been notified by an agency that the student is no longer in default.
- If a student has not fulfilled any student conduct sanctions imposed through the Formal Conduct Process, the degree will be withheld and official transcripts will not be released.
Students who have not fulfilled obligations as described above may be issued one unofficial transcript that will be stamped with “issued to student” and “outstanding obligation.” Transcripts will not be issued to a third party.
