Transcripts

The transcript is a complete record of a student’s enrollment at MTSU, including all undergraduate, graduate, and transfer courses. Partial transcripts are not available. 

Official transcripts are available as an eTranscript (PDF) or printed on secure blue paper. MTSU does not fax transcripts.  Transcripts will not be issued until all debts or obligations to the institution have been satisfied.  The MT One Stop does not provide unofficial transcripts. Unofficial transcripts can be accessed on-line using PipelineMT.  Select Registration & Student Records > TranscriptTranscript iconicon.

FAQs

What is the quickest way to send my transcript?

If you are a current student or prior student with access to PipelineMT, the quickest and most efficient way to order your transcript is through the Order Transcript-Official link in PipelineMT under the Registration and Student Records Menu.  Former students without access to PipelineMT who were here in Fall 1990 or later should order directly through Parchment's website. Students enrolled before Fall 1990 may be eligible to receive transcripts through Parchment, but if transcripts are not available electronically will need to submit a transcript request form.

What is an Electronic PDF (eTranscript)?

The term eTranscript refers to any transcript delivered to the recipient in an electronic format instead of being printed and mailed to the recipient. MTSU offers the electronic delivery of your transcript as a PDF document. If you choose this option on the Parchment online order form, it means that your transcript will be created as a PDF document and the intended recipient will be notified by email that it is ready to be downloaded. This method is used when you have selected a school that is participating in the Parchment Network and is able to receive PDF transcripts electronically or when you have designated an individual or other non-educational institution who is not a participant in the network as the recipient.

Once an order is submitted the email recipient cannot be changed.  Please verify the email recipient is correct before submitting your order. 

Things to know:

  • Link to PDF expires 48 hours after it has been initially downloaded (excluding weekends/holidays)
  • The email link cannot be saved or forwarded to another recipient
  • If printed, PRINTED COPY will print across the front of the transcript
  • Modifications are not allowed
  • Copying is not allowed

See Parchment FAQs here: https://parchmentsupport.force.com/s/parchment-faq?language=en_US 

Is the eTranscript (pdf) an official transcript?

Yes.  As long as the listed recipient accepts eTranscripts (pdf), the  eTranscript ordered through Parchment is considered an official transcript. The eTranscript is no longer official if printed and will state “PRINTED COPY” on the face of the transcript.

How many transcripts can I order at one time?

There are no restrictions on how many transcripts you may order through Parchment. However, you may only order up to five paper transcripts when at the MT One Stop in person.

Will you let me know if there is a problem in processing my request?

Yes.  After you submit your request through Parchment you will receive an email notification if there is a transcript hold on your account preventing the release or if you need to submit any further information.

Can I request express mail delivery?

Yes, but only if you use Parchment online ordering. FedEx is available for domestic and international to verified addresses.  FedEx cannot deliver to a PO Box.

Mailed - Overnight Domestic FedEx   $30.00 plus printed transcript handling
Mailed - International Priority FedEx   $55.00 plus printed transcript handling

What if I have a transcript hold?

Transcripts will not be released until all debts or obligations owed to the institution have been satisfied. Those with access to PipelineMT should check for and remove any transcript hold prior to ordering transcripts.  In PipelineMT > Select Registration & Student Records > View My Holds View My Holds logo icon. If your hold is not cleared within 30 days of placing an order, your order may be canceled and you will be notified via email.

Yes.  You will have the option to attach documents to your Parchment order before you submit it for processing.

Where can I have my transcript sent?

How will I know if my order was successfully received by Parchment?

When you have successfully entered your order through Parchment, you will see a confirmation screen. This screen will state that your transcript order has been accepted and will provide you with an order ID number that you should retain in case you need to contact Parchment about your order.
