Requesting Transcripts Online

Current and former students can request transcripts online through Parchment.  Payment is accepted by credit card.  Students who need assistance with anything concerning transcripts should contact Marquette Central at 414-288-4000.

There are three delivery options:

  • Email (fastest and recommended option):  Electronic transcripts are issued by Parchment via secure email typically within an hour of online ordering.  Orders that include attachments, legacy transcripts (pre-1985), or other special instructions will take up to three additional business days for processing.  Secure eTranscript links are available to the recipient for 30 days.  eTranscripts that are downloaded and saved have no expiration date.
  • Mail:  Paper transcripts are printed and mailed by Parchment within one business day of ordering using USPS or FedEx for an additional fee.  Orders that include attachments, legacy transcripts (pre-1985), or other special instructions will take up to three additional business days for processing.
  • Pickup:  Paper transcripts available for pick up at Marquette Central within three business days or one business day for an additional fee.  Transcripts must be claimed within one month of request.  Transcripts not claimed within one month will be destroyed and a new request must be submitted.

Do you have special instructions associated with your transcript request?

Complete the Transcript Order Special Handling Addendum to convey any special instructions related to your request.  When prompted to include attachments with your request in the Parchment system, attach the completed Transcript Order Special Handling Addendum.  Your request will be routed to the Office of the Registrar for review and processing.  Please note that additional time is required to process transcript requests with special instructions.
