How to Order an Official Transcript
There are now three ways to acquire a copy of your transcript:
Current and recently active students may request an official copy of their transcript through the Student Center in MaineStreet by selecting "Official Transcript" in the "other academic..." drop down box shown under the "Academics" area. This is the preferred method of requesting an official transcript. The benefits of requesting an official transcript through MaineStreet are:
- No signature is required
- Faster processing
- Requests can be made at any time of day, 7 days a week
- No postage required
- No need to hassle with a fax machine
Visit our office at 235 Preble Hall with photo identification to obtain copies of your transcript. Transcripts can be mailed, or you can pick them up at a later date.
By Mail or by Fax

Additional information about transcript ordering:
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 requires that all transcript requests be in writing, signed and dated by the person to whom the record belongs. Telephone and e-mail requests CANNOT be accepted. There is no fee for transcripts; but there is a limit of ten transcripts per request. (The Office of Student Records reserves the right to limit unreasonable requests.)
Upon receipt of the written request, official transcripts are normally mailed within seven to ten business days. Processing of your official transcript request may vary due to circumstances beyond our control. The Office of Student Records makes every effort to speed these important documents to your intended recipients.
Official transcripts cannot be faxed; however, we can fax your unofficial transcript, but still require a written transcript request. In lieu of a mailing address, please provide a return fax number.
Unofficial transcripts are merely copies of the transcript with no stamp or seal, usually used in house or by the student for personal use.
Official transcripts are transcripts in a sealed envelope that have the Director of Student Record's signature and the raised University Seal. The envelope is not to be opened until it reaches its official destination.
Please note: University policy prohibits issuing official transcripts to any student indebted to the University. The issuance of partial transcripts is also strictly prohibited.
