A student wishing to have a transcript sent to another institution should make a request
3-5 business days before it is needed. The request must be approved by both the Registrar
and the Student Financial Services office. No transcript is issued to or for a student
who is in debt to the University until such indebtedness has been paid in full.
Transcripts are issued only at the student's written request. Release of student academic records is subject to the provision of the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
