Requesting Your SUNY Empire State College Transcript
An official SUNY Empire State College transcript can only be issued at the request of the student/alumni. Transcripts cannot be issued for students/alumni who have holds on their records.
SUNY Empire State College Official Transcripts may be ordered online. Official transcripts may also be ordered by US mail or in person.
Note: At this time, we do not provide unofficial transcripts. The Office of the Registrar recommends that official transcripts be requested. The student/alumnus in receipt of a transcript may choose to copy the document(s) for their own purposes. Once the seal on the official transcript is broken most agencies will deem the document unofficial. Students/alumni can then make copies or scan to their computer as necessary.

- 24/7 Access: You may submit your request from any computer connected to the internet anywhere in the world.
