Order transcripts

Ordering your high school or college transcript on Parchment.com is fast, easy, and secure - and you can track the entire process on our website. We also have a user guide and a video that explain how to order transcripts:

A few things first

  • You must have an account with us. To set up an account, go to the Registration page. You may also want to read the Registration help topic to understand how the registration process works.
  • If you attended more than one school and need to order more than one transcript, you can add more schools in step 3.
  • We recommend using Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer when you order your transcript.

Order your transcript

  1. Log in to Parchment.com. Or, if you haven’t registered yet, click Sign up and follow the onscreen instructions to register.
  2. Click Send transcripts.
  3. You now need to find the school that has your transcript.
    • Enter your school's information and click Search.

    • If your school does not appear or you see Transcripts Unavailable, please contact your school directly to request your transcript.

      • For minors, a parent must sign, type their name, and check the box that certifies they are authorized to sign. However, if you are a minor and ordering your college transcript, you will be able to sign.
    • If you haven’t completed high school yet, you will see a box that you can check if you want a copy of your high school transcript stored in your Parchment account.
  9. Click Save & Continue.

Select your destination

  • Some schools have a preferred delivery method saved into our system, so you may not be presented with a choice of delivery methods. For example, some schools may only want to receive electronic transcripts.
  • Do not edit an address unless you are positive that the changes you are making are correct. You cannot change an address after you place an order. You will have to resubmit your order.
  • Use Other Organization or Other Individual to send transcripts to employers, military addresses, or specific individuals/departments at a college.
  • You cannot send other admissions documents with your transcript through Parchment. You should speak to your school if you need to submit other documents. They may be able to upload and send these other documents when they send your transcript.

Here's what happens next

Your school will receive your transcript request.

Or your school will prepare it themselves if it's not available electronically. You can track your order online.
