Official transcripts may be obtained online, in person, mail, or by phone (via Credentials Inc only). If ordering official transcript(s) in person, there is a limit of one per person.
A transcript will NOT be released if the student has any holds on their record (e.g., Bursar, Library, Financial Aid, etc.). The hold(s) MUST be cleared before a transcript is released.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. S.1232g) protects the confidentiality of student education records. Student records CANNOT be released without the student's written authorization.
