3. How do I order an official transcript?
Official transcripts are ordered online through the
National Student Clearinghouse. Make sure to spell out “Saint Paul College” when you are searching and not “St. Paul College”.
When ordering electronic transcripts, it is your responsibility to ensure the recipient has the ability to receive them. Ordering and downloading an electronic transcript to yourself makes the transcript unofficial. In most cases the “recipient” part of the form if the email address of the college or university that you are transferring to, for example
firstname.lastname@example.org could be the “recipient” if you are transferring to the University of Minnesota. Make sure to verify the “recipient” email address with your new college or university before ordering.
The transcript serves as the official record of student effort while enrolled at the College. All financial obligations to the College must be met before transcripts are released. Paper form requests are currently not available. Please utilize the online request option until further notice.
If you are transferring to a college or university within the Minnesota State system, they can access your official Saint Paul College transcript free of charge as long as there are no holds on your record. There is no need to submit a transcript request. Please see question #2 above for further detail.
