To complete your transfer credit process, you must request that your official transcripts be sent directly to Rasmussen University. You will receive email notifications alerting you when your transcripts are received and credits post to your account.
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.

If you are having trouble finding your school or transcript on the National Student Clearinghouse website, we recommend contacting your previous school directly for more information.
