Request a Transcript

Electronic transcripts are available:

Brenau University, in partnership with Credentials, can 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.

Methods for requesting a transcript:

NOTE: Electronic transcripts will still be processed on a normal work schedule when permitted. Please note that, due to the current health crisis, mailed transcripts are currently delayed and could take up to two weeks to process.  If you need your transcript issued sooner, please choose the electronic option.  There will be no express printing of transcripts at this time.  

In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), all transcripts must be requested in writing. Transcripts cannot be requested by email or telephone. Transcript requests are ordinarily processed once a week, but please allow two weeks for processing. Transcripts will not be issued for any student whose financial obligations to the university have not been satisfied. Transcripts will not be faxed.
