Hold on Your Record: You will be notified during the transcript ordering process if a hold exists on your record. Your transcript order cannot be processed until the hold is removed. Once the hold is resolved, your transcript will be released.

Paper Transcripts (no charge): Paper transcripts are processed within 1-2 business days after receipt of your order. Official transcripts are mailed in hard-copy via U.S. Standard Mail. Expedited mailing is not available. The Office of the Registrar also offers same day in-person transcript request and pick up during regular business hours.  Valid identification is necessary to claim your transcript in person.

Processing Delays

Your order may be delayed for the following reasons:

  • Holds: Holds on your record will delay transcript processing. Consult the Holds on Your Record.
