Official Transcripts
Students may order an official academic transcript by accessing the online-transcript-ordering system through the secure website, National Student Clearinghouse. This process is very efficient and easy to use. If a student has any financial obligations to the university, the balance must be paid in full before an official transcript can be issued.

Note: A transcript sent to the student is considered unofficial.
