Ordering an Official Transcript
There are two ways to request an official transcript:
Ridgewater College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide its online transcript ordering service. Visit www.getmytranscript.com to request an official transcript. This service provides students with timely notices regarding their transcript request as well as order status history. Students who have a major credit card and a valid email address can request an official transcript through this service. Credit cards will be charged only after orders have been processed.
The cost of an official Ridgewater College transcript ordered from the National Student Clearinghouse is $9.25 per transcript for a mailed paper copy sent within two to three business days. The cost of an electronic transcript is $9.25 and will be sent the same business day as requested if received by 3:00 pm.
In Person and Outside Organizations
If requesting a transcript in person, you will need to submit the transcript request form [PDF] to the Office of Records and Registration. Cost is $15.
Outside organizations requesting an official transcript on a student’s behalf will need authorization and a handwritten signature from the student, as well as submission of the transcript request form [PDF]. Cost is $15.
Transcripts CANNOT be requested via telephone or email unless the transcript request form is attached in the email.
Make all checks or money orders payable to Ridgewater College. Requests will not be processed without payment.
Please note: If you currently have outstanding financial obligations to the College, your transcript request will be denied.
Questions regarding transcript requests should be directed to the records and registration office.
