Important Information about Paper Transcripts

All Credit Transcripts

  • Transcripts will not be processed for those with holds placed on their account for financial or other obligations to the University. Students may check for holds on LionPATH.

  • Students may request that we delay processing your transcript order until final grades for degrees conferred for the current semester. This option is not available for Third Party Orders. Please see important information regarding the deadline date to receive these requests to process for specific semester.

  • You may attach a document to accompany your transcript. It may be in one of the following formats: jpg, jpeg, gif, png, eps, cdr, ai, pdf, tif, tiff, bmp, zip, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, txt, xml.

  • Attached documents that must be routed through other offices, such as the academic college or Office of Student Conduct, will take additional processing time. Some offices may charge a processing fee.

  • Paper transcripts are certified with the University seal and University Registrar signature. If you believe you need a notarized copy of your transcript, please review the information on the Notary Services website and follow the instructions provided there.
