Transcript Ordering Options

An official academic transcript may be processed only if requested by the student or alumnus.  No one may request a transcript on someone’s behalf.  SUNY ESF complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), which governs access and release of information from student educational records.  Current students and alumni may request an official transcript at any time using the online ordering service Parchment. Services offered includes direct mailing (paper transcript) or electronic delivery. 

Electronic transcripts cost $3.00 per copy. If you choose to use Parchment to order a paper transcript to be mailed or picked up in the Registrar’s Office then the $3.00 service fee will also apply. You can request a printed transcript to be mailed or picked up in the Registrar’s Office for no charge using option 2 below.
