Transcripts are released by Rochester College only upon receipt of a signed, written request from a former student. Official or unofficial transcripts may be picked up or will be mailed within 4 business days following the date received by the Academic Services Office. Unofficial transcripts may be provided on a “same day” basis. Official transcripts may not be provided on a “same day” basis, as they are processed in the order in which they are received. Both official and unofficial transcripts can be obtained for $5 per transcript.
Transcripts mailed to students are not considered official and are marked “issued to student.” Transcripts released to colleges and employers are considered official as long as they are mailed directly to the college or employer. Transcripts may be released only when accounts are paid in full.
Rochester College also maintains the academic records of William Tyndale College by request of the Michigan Department of Education. Tyndale alumni must follow the same procedures listed on this page to obtain transcripts of work completed at Tyndale.
