Processing Time

While there is no fee for processing, we do require that you allow 10 to 15 business days if you are requesting more than five transcripts.

From mid-May through early October, requestors should allow 5 to 10 business days for processing orders for one to four transcripts, in addition to mailing transport time. To expedite processing, you may send a pre-paid overnight or priority envelope (UPS or USPS only; we do not accept envelopes from Fed Ex). Note that some overnight services require delivery to a street address only (no P.O. boxes).

Official copies of transcripts may be withheld based on outstanding financial or other obligations to the college.
