An “official” transcript is one bearing the Mercyhurst University seal and the signature of the Registrar and is issued only upon the written authorization of the student. Official transcripts are normally mailed directly to other institutions and agencies or released directly to the student in a sealed envelope. A fee of ten dollars is charged for the issuance of each official transcript. An “unofficial” transcript does not bear the seal of the University nor the authorized signature. These are issued free of charge to the student upon request.
Students and alumni may obtain a transcript (either official or unofficial) by stopping in at the Office of the Registrar, Main 106, during regular office hours and completing a transcript request form or by accessing the University website at https://www.mercyhurst.edu/academics/registrars-office where instructions for downloading and completing the form are located.
