Processing and Shipping
Transcripts can be resent to the same address if not received after 15 days of shipping and up to 30 days from the initial shipping date.
To request a transcript via Parchment Ordering Services with expedited shipping, you must upload a pre-paid FedEx® shipping label printed online from FedEx. The registrar's office cannot charge your credit card or your FedEx account number for expedited shipping. See FedEx delivery options.
If you come to the registrar’s office in person to request a transcript, you can add
expedited shipping by bringing a pre-paid FedEx® shipping label. Requests received in the registrar’s office after 12:00 p.m. will be processed the
next business day.
Transcripts are mailed as first class international mail. There could be extended delays in receiving your transcript in some locations. In time sensitive situations, expedited shipment through FedEx is recommended. See instructions above for expedited shipping.
