FAQ — Frequently Asked Questions
1.Can my Father walk-in and pick up a copy of my transcript? The answer is No, because without written permission to do so, the record belongs to the student and only the student has the right to get a copy of his academic record.
2. My Wife is coming to campus, I have asked her to pick up a copy of my transcript. How can she pick up my transcript? Students can provide written permission for the Wife to pick up the transcript. What the Office of Admissions requires is a “permissions” note, that is, student needs to write on plain paper:
> who is picking up the transcript (full name, address, date of birth or some other identifier),
> specify the relationship to student (Mother, Father, spouse, friend), and
> identifying information of the student (student’s printed name and signature, last four digit of the Social Security Number, CASC ID preferred, date of birth), and
> copy of their photo ID and the number of copies.
3. I have a FERPA release form on file that gives my Sister permission to my academic records. Can she pick up my transcript or do I still have to give her a “permissions” note? When students give another person permission (with the FERPA release form) to their academic records, then, that specific person may walk-in to the Office of Admissions and pick up a transcript with their photo ID. Sister may also submit the Transcript Request form by mail or fax with their photo ID. (A standard form is available to students who want to give their parent, spouse, or other permission to their academic records.

The answer is No. Students who have “Holds” on their Business Accounts from unpaid tuition, fees, fines, or other expenses can not receive an Official transcript. (Additionally, students should know that once the Transcript Request is given to the Office of Admissions and the transcript “ordered”, the official transcript will be automatically printed once the Business Hold is removed. )
