Requesting Transcripts

A transcript is a complete and unabridged copy of all academic work attempted at Marquette.  Course and grade information contained on the transcript is released only with consent from the student or as otherwise allowed by the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

Issue to student or send directly

Transcripts issued directly to a student are marked as such.  Many institutions and other entities will not accept a transcript that has been in the student's possession.  We strongly recommend you request the Office of the Registrar to send a transcript directly to the institution/entity involved.  If you choose not to follow this recommendation, you are liable for any further charges for additional transcripts.
