Official Transcripts
Official transcripts normally are mailed directly to the receiving party. Official transcripts in a sealed envelop may be picked-up by the student in the Admissions and Records Office.(The student must produce a picture ID in order to obtain the transcript) These transcripts will be stamped "Issued to Student." It will be up to the receiving institution to accept the transcript as official or not.

Unofficial Transcripts (copies for students)
Transcripts issued directly to the student and/or faxed transcripts are unofficial transcripts. There is no charge for an unofficial transcript. Students requesting an unofficial transcript in person must produce a picture ID.

Additional Information
Transcripts are issued within a 48-hour time period upon receipt of request except during registration and drop/add periods. There may be a delay during these times

Students must show picture I.D. when requesting and picking up transcripts in the office. All financial obligations to Shelton State Community College must be cleared before transcripts can be released. Transcripts may not be picked up by another party unless the student has given written authorization with the request. The designated person will be expected to show a picture I.D. before obtaining the transcript. Transcript requests are to be signed by the individual whose name is on the transcript.
