Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why is the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) our partner for providing transcript services?

The transcript ordering system is an extension of the Banner Student System-the University's official system of record for student information. Ellucian, the developers of the Banner system, selected NSC to be their strategic partner in offering online ordering and electronic delivery of transcripts. In short, the NSC system is the recommended transcript ordering solution and is fully integrated with Banner, providing secure and real-time access to transcripts.

2. What fees are associated with transcripts?

The PDF costs $4.25, of which $2.50 is paid to the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), and $1.75 is paid to Adobe for their charges associated with the security features of the PDF. The paper transcript costs $6.00 if mailed. Each additional paper transcript costs $1.00 per transcript order. The NSC charges $2.50 per paper order, and the remaining monies are put toward the costs associated with the secure transcript paper, the envelopes, and the postage.

3. I'm a current student. Do I have to order a transcript to view my grades?

No, current students do not have to order a transcript to view their grades. Current students can view their transcript on Student Profile > Academic Transcript. If an account balance hold prevents access to the transcript, students can click Final Grades to view grades on a term-by-term basis.

4. Is my transaction secure?

Yes. All transactions meet the current Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). In addition, the information sent over the Internet, when using Clearinghouse applications, is encrypted using the latest Transport Layer Security / Secure Socket Layer (TLS/SSL) protocols.

5. How do I find my transcript order number?

On the Order Confirmation at the end of the request the order number is shown. Also, the confirmation email you received when you submitted your request contains your transcript order number.
