Official transcripts are issued by the Office of the Registrar. We accept online, mail-in or in-person requests. We cannot accept telephone, fax or email requests. Transcript requests are generally processed within three to five business days. Online requests can be made to the National Student Clearinghouse.

Official transcripts are $10 each. If you have a financial obligation with the University, we will not be able to fulfill your request. If you suspect that this is the case, please contact the Cashier's Office at 708.534.4055 before you submit a transcript request.
