Requesting Transcripts Online

SPECIAL NOTE:  In person requests and pick-up orders for transcripts are now being processed.  However, you are strongly encouraged to submit an online request for PDF electronic delivery for your transcript orders to be processed in a timely manner.  If you need to order a transcript by mail or request paper delivery of your transcript, there could be delays in processing due to limited on-campus staffing.

Current and former students can request transcripts online via the National Student Clearinghouse.  Payment is accepted by credit card.

There are several request options:

  • Paper mailed:  Marquette uses USPS and Federal Express (FedEx) to receive and send transcripts.
  • Paper held:  pick up at Marquette Central.
  • eTranscript:  available to the recipient for 30 days.  eTranscripts that are downloaded and saved have no expiration date.

Transcripts that are held for pickup at Marquette Central must be claimed within 1 month of request.  Transcripts not claimed within 1 month will be destroyed and a new request must be submitted.

Marquette accepts eTranscripts via a secure 3rd party method that has been verified by the sending university but does not accept or send transcripts via email or facsimile.

Students who need assistance with anything concerning transcripts should contact Marquette Central at 414-288-4000.
