Placing your order

Parchment is our official supplier of transcripts. They deliver secure transcripts by mail or electronically.

You may wish to review the Parchment Support page on how to place an order before you begin. There are step by step instructions that are very helpful. The page also includes a how-to video and a downloadable PDF guide.

Be careful when entering your information and check it carefully. Any differences in name, birth date, graduation year, etc., will delay the delivery of your transcript.

If you have trouble while you are on the Parchment website and need help, click on the Support button at the bottom and select Contact Support.

Tips, tricks, and notes

  1. Use the Other Destinations tab to send an electronic transcript to an email address (for employers, scholarships, etc...).
  2. Some schools have a preferred delivery method saved into the Parchment system, so you may not be presented with a choice of delivery methods.
  3. Do not edit an address unless you are positive that the changes you are making are correct; you cannot correct an incorrect address once an order has been fulfilled.
