Transcripts, Diplomas, & Verification Letters

Official Transcripts

We have partnered with Parchment for all of our transcript delivery services and can send out secure, official transcripts electronically or through the mail. The fee per transcript request is $8 for electronic transcripts or $10.50 for paper transcripts. Place your order using the "Request Transcript" link below.

You will need to set up an account for your first time use. As of 5/11/2021, we moved to a new Parchment platform.  If you created a Parchment account prior to May 11, 2021, you will need to create a new user account.

Transcript requests are generally processed within 1-3 business days. Any holds on your account may result in delayed processing.
