An official transcript is a certified copy of a student’s permanent academic record created by the university. It is printed on unique, security-marked paper and sealed in the university’s envelope. In electronic form, the transcript is protected by data encryption. An unofficial transcript does not grant the same assurance, since it does not come directly from the Office of the Registrar. Before requesting a transcript, it is important that students check with the intended recipient to see what type of transcript is accepted and/or required.
Ordering Official Transcripts
At any time, a student may order an official transcript online in electronic or paper form. The university has partnered with Parchment, Inc. to deliver secure and certified electronic and paper transcripts.
Students and former students may request official transcripts utilizing the Parchment, Inc. link found in their Student Central account.
Official Transcript Fees
Individuals ordering an official transcript are responsible for all fees associated with each request, including shipping and handling charges. The cost per transcript is dependent upon how quickly you need your transcript to be sent.
The university will honor the previous policy of providing three (3) no-cost official transcripts through December 31st, 2020 for all students who start class prior to December 31, 2019. Students will still be required to request their official transcript utilizing the Parchment link and pay any associated fees. Stanbridge University will reimburse up to $3 (USD) of the completed transcript request. All reimbursement requests should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accessing Unofficial Transcripts
Students and former students may view and print their unofficial transcript through their Student Central account.
The Office of the Registrar maintains the official transcript of academic record. A student may not be eligible to receive an official transcript if they have a transcript hold placed on their student record. A hold is placed on a student record when a student has not met a particular enrollment or academic requirement.
It is the sole responsibility of the student to clear any holds prior to requesting an official transcript. The Office of the Registrar will remove a hold within forty-eight (48) working hours after verification of the hold removal from the issuing department.
