Requesting a Transcript
Academic transcripts can be issued either to you or directly to a third party. If they are issued to you, they bear the comment "issued to the student" even if they are sealed and signed over the flap.
In general processing and mailing time is 3 to 4 days, however, delays may be expected during the period at the end of each semester, the month of January, and at Commencement due to the high volume of requests.
Please contact the Registrar's Office at (413) 542-2225 for information about expedited transcripts via FedEx.
