A student wishing to have a transcript sent to another institution should request one at least a week before it is needed. The request must be approved by both the Registrar and the Student Financial Services office. No transcript is issused to or for a student who is in debt to the University until such indebtedness has been paid in full.
Transcripts are issued only at the student’s written request. Release of student academic records is subject to the provision of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The first 10 transcripts requested will be free. Each additional transcript will cost $5.00.
