Transcripts

New transcript services coming soon! Alma College will soon be transitioning to Parchment transcript services. This will provide current and past students the convenience of online ordering, quick processing, and secure delivery of your transcripts.  Processing fees will apply to all current and past students and will vary based on the method of delivery.

Types of Transcripts

Official: These transcripts are sent directly to a third party (such as an institution or prospective employer) from Alma College.

Issued to Student: These transcripts (with the Registrar’s Office seal) are sent to the student in a sealed envelope. Breaking the envelope’s seal will invalidate the official transcript. This type of transcript may not be considered official by all receiving parties.

Unofficial: These transcripts are issued with a “copy only” stamp on them. They are not assured by Alma College as being an official, unaltered version of the transcript. E-mail and fax copies of transcripts are considered unofficial.

Ordering Transcripts

(Please note: Transcripts take three to five (3-5) business days to process. Your hand-written signature is required for us to release a transcript. If you are on a business office hold your transcripts cannot be released, until the hold has been lifted. A new transcript request form is required if the business office hold is not lifted within 3 months.)
