Academic Transcript Information
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, a student’s academic record can only be released upon request by the student. As such, the university does not accept 3rd party requests, including those from parents or employers. Regretfully, the university cannot accept authorization by telephone.
A transcript will not be issued unless all financial obligations to the university have been satisfied.
Transcripts will be processed within five (5) business days from when the request is received.
Transcripts requested to be sent prior to the official date of graduation will not include a notation of your degree. If you need a transcript with the graduation date included, please indicate that on your request and it will be processed approximately five (5) business days after the official conferral date.
