Official transcripts are issued by the Office of Academic Records and University Registrar to recognized institutions and agencies that require these documents. Official transcripts are issued and mailed only upon the involved student's written request; they are not issued for persons who have financial obligations to the University. A fee is charged for each transcript. Faxed transcripts are available but are not considered official documents. There is an additional charge for each faxed transcript and for the official document mailed subsequently.
