Requests for transcripts (copy of permanent record) must be made in writing. Procedures may be found here. Official transcripts (bearing the seal of the University) may be issued to you, but are deemed "unofficial" if the digital transcript is received by you, or if the sealed envelope of a printed copy is opened. Official transcripts may also be sent directly to another college, employer, etc., at your request. You may request an unofficial transcript for your records by requesting an official copy and opening it, or print one from Self Service while currently enrolled.
