How to Order an Official Academic Transcript
Academic Transcripts may be ordered in the following ways:
- Internet, the most secure way to order a transcript is to use a credit card at the National Student Clearinghouse. The cost is $3.00 per transcript plus a $2.25 processing fee. To ensure confidentiality and to comply with federal regulations, the National Student Clearinghouse will require a faxed signature release form when ordering a transcript. For frequently asked questions regarding the Clearinghouse, please click on the link in their website.
- In person, at the Enrollment Services Office, complete the Transcript Request Form provided and make payment by cash, credit card, check or money order in the amount of $3 at the Business Office (open 7:30 am - 5 pm).
- By mail or fax, by sending the Transcript Request Form to the Enrollment Services Office. The request must be signed.
- Cost: $3.00 per copy
- Faxed transcripts: Additional $3.00 per facsimile transmission
- Transcripts are generally sent within two business days of receipt of the request.
- If a transcript is requested to be sent by a method other than first class mail, the student is responsible for and will be billed for the additional charge(s). Call the Enrollment Services Office at (406) 496-4256 to make these special arrangements.
- If an undergraduate student has not completed a Bachelor’s degree but wishes certification on the transcript that he/she completed the General Education Core at Tech, that request should be indicated on the request for transcript.
- With the exception of those Montana post-secondary institutions that hold membership in the "Montana Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers" (MACRAO) organization, faxed transcripts are not recognized as official.
