Request a Transcript

Ordering Options

There are two ways to order your Houghton transcript*:

  • Online form - Select Houghton from the drop-down box and continue through the form. Use this form to track your order, and pay with any major credit card. (add to your safe senders list to receive order updates)
  • Student Self-Service- Current students may request transcripts under the "Grade" tab on Student Self-Service. You may bring the payment to our office or mail the payment separately; we will not hold your first couple transcripts for that payment.)

There is a $5 cost for every official transcript that is sent out. There is an extra $1.00 charge for all transcripts sent outside the United States. There is no charge for transcripts that are sent directly to Houghton Greatbatch School of Music or directly to a scholarship foundation.

If you use the online form, an additional $2.25 will be collected by the National Student Clearinghouse (regardless of where it is being sent). If you have any questions, please email  

*United Wesleyan students may request their transcripts through the same methods; please indicate in the Notes section or on the request form that you are from United Wesleyan.

Processing Time

If you need your transcript by a certain date, be sure to note that on your request form. Please allow 3-4 days for your transcript to be processed. 

While we strongly request that you allow 3-4 business days for transcripts to be processed; we will do our best to help if a situation arises in which you must place a rush order on a transcript. 

Please prepay overnight shipment on the UPS website for any rushed orders. Forward the electronic label from UPS to with "OVERNIGHT Transcript UPS Label" in the subject line.  We must receive the label by 9am or we may not be able to process the transcript that day.

Please Note: Regardless of urgency status, transcripts will not be released for currently enrolled or former students who have not paid their college bills in full or who are delinquent in their loan repayments.
