What is an Official Transcript ?
Transcripts contain confidential information. They are released in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
A transcript is a comprehensive record of an individual’s academic progress, including transferred undergraduate-level courses, credit earned by exam, and degrees awarded.
Official transcripts include the University seal and the signature of the registrar. There is a $5.00 charge per transcript. Payment is due upon request.
Transcripts are NOT issued for students with financial holds, parking fines, library holds or incomplete files.
How to Order a Transcript ?
Transcripts may be ordered by mail, by fax, email or in person.
In accordance with the Texas Open Records Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, student academic records are classified as confidential, and may be released only with the student’s written authorization and signature.

Issued to Student in a Sealed Envelope
The office that asked for your transcript may require that it be issued to you in a sealed envelope. If you request this service, the transcript is stamped "issued to student in a sealed envelope" and is placed in an envelope with a seal across the back flap. Opening the envelope renders the transcript invalid for many purposes.
Hold for Grade or Degree Posting
Previous School Transcripts
