    3. When you have verified that your Unofficial Transcript is accurate, select “Official Transcript” in WebPortal
    4. Select your desired format: “Certified Electronic PDF” or “Hard Copy Paper”
    5. Select “Continue”
    6. Complete all fields and follow all instructions.

    Important Information

    • The fee for each official transcript is $10.
    • Ordering an official transcript before your grades are posted on WebPortal will result in a blank transcript.
    • Transcripts will be sent to the address or email address that you indicate. It is your responsibility to enter a complete and accurate address.
    • For electronic transcripts, check with your university to ensure they accept PDF documents.
    • All transcripts will say “Undergraduate Transcript.” Graduate classes are designated by a course level 600 and above. If needed, we can provide a letter stating you were enrolled as a graduate student.
    • You will receive a confirmation from the registrar’s office once your order has been sent.
    • Paper transcripts should arrive 6–8 weeks from the send date. If yours do not arrive, please email the Transcript Unit at
