Delivery Options

Electronic (fastest)

Many recipients now accept “paperless” official transcripts. Before placing your online order, ask the recipient whether an electronic transcript is acceptable and, if so, the email address you should use for delivery.

Transcripts Update

New Transcript Design

Paper transcripts printed after August 11, 2016 have a new look that aligns the transcript with the appearance of our e-transcript. The new design allows for easier scanning by recipients, but still maintains several safety features to ensure the integrity of the document. The transcript is printed on “wolf” gray paper with visible red and blue colored fibers in the actual paper stock. A chain link fence watermark embedded in the paper fibers will be visible by holding it up to the light and the ink and paper have features that expose counterfeiting efforts.
