NEW: As of August 1, 2019, Lehman College was scheduled to debut an electronic transcript delivery service to our current online ordering services. However, due to technical difficulties beyond our control, this option will be postponed until further notice is received from CUNY and Credential Solutions. During this time, we will continue to provide on-the-spot transcript services to all students. Students who request to pick up a sealed, official transcript will be provided one copy. We strongly encourage students to plan ahead and submit their transcript requests with enough time to meet their deadlines. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

To utilize this service, students will need to have their CUNYfirst ID or social security number and a valid major credit card (Visa, Master Card, American Express or Discover). Online orders are generally processed within one to three business days. Students who attended Lehman prior to 1993 may take longer to process.
Benefits to ordering your transcript online:
NEW! Electronic delivery: Transcripts can be delivered electronically to the recipient in a PDF file format. Transcripts sent electronically can take as little as 5 minutes to be completed. Web encryption technology ensures your transcript information is secure.
24/7 access: You can place online requests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any computer without being dependent on our office hours or school closings.
No lines: By ordering online, you avoid standing on 2 separate lines on campus—the Registrar to place the order and the Bursar to pay the fee.
Email/Text notification: After placing an order online, you automatically receive an email or text notification (according to your preference) containing a confirmation number which you can then use to check the status of your request. You also receive a separate notification when your order has been processed and the transcript sent.
Address look-up: The service provides a menu of pre-completed addresses of many schools, saving you time by preventing the need for multiple, separate searches.
Use of FedEx: You have the option of using FedEx to expedite delivery of your transcripts. This is only available through use of the online service. Additional fees apply.
Exact addresses: If the address you need to send your transcript to is not listed in the online menu, you will type in the exact address as you need it to appear. This prevents the risk of mistakes that can occur from the inability to read a hand written request.
Quick and easy order status checking: There is no longer the need to call or send an email to the Registrar’s Office to check the status of your order. You receive a unique confirmation number for each order placed online. Simply go to here to check the status.
Credit card charges: Your credit card is charged only when your order has been processed and mailed by the Registrar’s Office.
Notification of holds: If you have an outstanding balance on campus or other item that would prevent your transcript request from being processed, you are immediately notified and provided with the contact information of the appropriate office to rectify the situation. This saves much time and allows quicker turn-around for your order to be cleared for processing.
Quicker processing: Since the logistics of accepting the initial request information are handled by Credentials, Inc., more in-office time is available for Registrar staff to process the order and mail the transcript(s) quicker and more efficiently.
