This can no longer be done online. Contact the Counseling Office.
How do I send a paper transcript? It is the responsibility of each student to mail his/her transcripts. Students requesting transcripts must complete a form in the counseling office stating the number of transcripts needed. Each transcript will be “officially” sealed in an envelope that must not be opened by the student for it to remain official. The cost is $5.00 for each. Please allow 3-5 days for completion of your request.
