Official Transcripts

An official transcript is the University's certified statement of your academic record. The official paper transcript is printed on security sensitive paper and contains the University seal and signature of the University Registrar. Therefore, negating the need for notarization. The official electronic transcript is a PDF delivered through the Credentials Solutions Global Transcript Delivery Network. When requesting your transcript select the level of coursework undergraduate, graduate or both that you need. For your protection, we will not release an official transcript without your signature.

  • Maximum processing time for all requests, is three business days (this does not include weekends) from receipt of request. When placing a request, it important to be mindful of any pending deadlines. Expedited processing and delivery are not options.
  • Electronic transcripts which are sent and opened, expire within 24 hours.
  • Electronic transcripts which are sent and not opened by the recipient, expire within 30 days, and a new order will have to be placed.
  • Official transcripts will NOT be emailed or faxed (due to security issues).
  • Once orders are completed, a confirmation email is sent to the requestor.
  • Please note that you must complete your signed release with Credentials Solutions in order for us to release your transcript; this is in accordance with federal law. If you do not complete this step, your order will be cancelled.
