Official transcripts must be sent directly to another university or college, to an official of an organization, or sent directly to the student in a sealed envelope. If the transcript is sent directly to the student, the sealed envelope and the transcript will be stamped "not official if seal is broken". These sealed envelopes are mailed in a larger envelope that can be opened by the student. Transcripts marked "Issued to Student" may be ordered for personal use.
Transcripts are issued only upon the request of the student; third party requests will not be processed.
The Registrar's office cannot release high school transcripts and other documents on file. Contact your high school principal for school records. For transcripts from another university or college, contact the Registrar's Office of that institution.
