  • Electronic Delivery: Secure electronic PDF transcripts are delivered by National Student Clearinghouse to the recipient email address requested within 3 to 5 business days. Once processed and sent, electronic transcripts that are not accessed within 30 days by the recipient will need to be reordered at the requestor’s expense.
  • Mailing Delivery: Transcripts are mailed via standard first class with the U.S. Postal Service.

Transcripts that do not reach their final destination must be reordered at the requestor’s expense.
    • Transcripts can be sent priority delivery. The priority fee is an additional fee for US destinations and for international destinations.
    • The priority service expedites the mailing of the transcript and provides tracking information, but does not shorten office processing time.
