It is your responsibility to ensure that all official transcripts have been received by the University. Additional evaluations may apply.

Many colleges work with the National Student Clearinghouse, a secure 24/7 online order system, to help you order and process transcript requests. Click on the button below if you're ready to request your transcript.
