Request a Transcript
A transcript is a certified official copy of your permanent academic record. You are the only person authorized to request a copy of your transcript. It is the Registrar's goal to process all transcripts within one business day of receipt.
Unofficial vs. Official Transcripts
If you are enrolling to become a Donnelly student, unofficial transcripts are accepted for the enrollment process, but official transcripts must be submitted by the first day of classes. Unofficial transcripts can be emailed to the admissions office. Official transcripts must be submitted from an issuing institution. You can order your official transcripts at the National Student Clearing House or have them mailed from your high school.
- Unofficial transcripts: Transcripts that have been in the hands of a student such as student copy are not considered official. Unofficial transcripts are printed on plain paper and do not have a college seal or registrar's signature. Students with a myDonnelly account may print off an unofficial transcript through their Self Service account.
- Official transcripts: An official transcript is one that has been received directly from an authorized organization. Official transcripts are printed on official transcript paper and must include the college seal, date and the registrar's signature. Hand-delivered copies of official transcripts are only accepted in an original institution sealed envelope.
Official transcripts may be requested any of the following ways:
Online: Donnelly College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to manage the ordering, processing, and secure delivery of student transcripts.
