Official Transcript

PDF Official Transcripts now available!*** Order Online!

The Office of the Registrar takes responsibility for handling transcript requests in a prompt and efficient manner. However, we are not responsible for mishandling by the U.S. Post Office or the receiving school or agency. Replacement copies cannot be issued without the normal transcript fee.

Contact the Library at 936-468-1497 and the Business Office at 936-468-6960 to make sure you have cleared all fiscal responsibilities to the university as this may prevent the release of transcripts.
