How to request your transcripts
Admitted students must have official transcripts sent to the college.
The Office of the Registrar has limited staff on campus as a precaution during this COVID-19 Pandemic. As a result, in-person pickup of transcripts will be available by appointment only. Contact the Office of the Registrar to coordinate a pick-up date. In addition, paper (vs. electronic) transcript orders will be fulfilled twice a week until further notice.
Note: Expedited order requests, must be submitted in Parchment by Monday or Wednesday in order to be mailed the next day.
Columbia College has partnered with Parchment to fulfill transcript requests.
To order your transcript online:
- Create an account on the Parchment page
- Fill out the order form.
- Submit Payment
You will need to provide specific information such as your student ID or partial social security number to complete your request.
For your convenience, transcripts can now be sent electronically (excludes Columbia College transcripts for students who attended prior to January 1980 and Realtor University® transcripts). A processing fee of $10 will be charged for each request (additional fees for expedited shipping). Transcripts are usually processed and sent within one business day.
To order a transcript on behalf of a student, use our Third-Party Ordering page. Do not use this option if you are the student. This option should be used only by a third party such as another educational institution or third party ordering the transcript for the student. The fee for third-party orders is $15.
Note: A student's current account balance must be in good standing prior to the release of the transcript.

Columbia College requires official transcripts within 90 days of enrollment. Transcripts are considered official if they are marked as such as sent directly from the school to the Office of the Registrar.
When all transcripts and required documents are submitted, a student’s file will be deemed complete. A complete file includes:
- Application for admission
- Official transcripts from all institutions
- Official transcripts from military/civilian training, if applicable
Processing time varies throughout the school year. Submit transcripts and other documentation as soon as possible to keep processing time to a minimum.
The Transcripts and Credentials Policy provides additional details about credit earned prior to applying at Columbia College.
