Transcript Requests

Official transcript requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis according to the date received.  Regular processing for electronic transcripts is 2-3 business days.  Rush processing for electronic transcripts is completed the same day if the request is received by 11 AM Central time.  During summer hours, rush requests on Fridays must be submitted by 8:30 AM.  Transcript requests cannot be made by phone or email.  Please see the other options below.  If you are requesting a rush transcript, the online process is best.

Unofficial transcripts are available only for current students via the Courses and Grades section of SIS.  Former students can request an official transcript to be sent to themselves to use as an unofficial transcript.

Transcripts requested at a time when a grade has not yet been posted for a course will show “IP” (in progress) for the grade instead of a final letter grade. To ensure your recently completed semester and/or graduation date shows on your transcript, please select “Hold for Grades” on your request.

Please call 507-786-3015 or email with any transcript questions.
