Additional Information 
Most official transcripts are distributed within the week after receipt of the request. However, requests that specify inclusion of grades just earned or verification of a degree just awarded cannot be filled until two to three weeks after the end of the term. Students may provide a pre-paid Express Mail envelope with the request to expedite the mailing process.

All official transcripts are mailed to the address designated on the Transcript Request form or letter. All transcripts received by students are marked "Issued to Student" and may not be considered official by other educational institutions. In addition, employers and other businesses may not consider these transcripts official if the seal on the mailing envelope is broken. Students must specify in their request form or letter if they desire transcripts to be sent in separate sealed envelopes.
