Effective August 27, 2012:
Brenau University, in partnership with SCRIP-SAFE International, can now provide electronic transcript delivery directly to any third party designated by the student. Electronic Transcript Delivery is a secure option in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) that protects students’ privacy rights regarding their educational records.
Electronic transcripts are delivered to a secure website in an encrypted format. They are not delivered via email or by email attachments. When you place your order, you provide the email address for the recipient. The recipient will receive an email informing them that your transcript is ready for pickup at the specific URL in the email notification.
