Transcript Requests for Current Students
Current students must request official transcripts via my.mtholyoke. Under the Self-Service Menu, choose Academic Records, then choose Official Transcript Request.
Transcript Requests for Alumnae/Former Students
Per the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), transcripts may not be released without the student's consent and signature. This means that transcripts may never be ordered by telephone or by electronic mail (and, regardless, payment may not be sent over the phone or by email). U.S. mail is the best method.
Requests for transcripts must come from the student or alumna. They cannot be accepted from family members, friends, employers, or any third party. Again, this is required under Federal law, and it is for your protection that we must observe that law.
The College reserves the right to withhold transcripts if the student's financial obligations to the College are not paid or are overdue.
There is a charge of $4.00 (U.S. currency from a U.S. bank only, please) for each transcript requested. We accept cash, checks drawn on U.S. banks, or money orders for U.S. currency only. We regret that we cannot issue transcripts on credit, but must have full payment with each order; orders not accompanied by payment will be returned (unprocessed) to the sender.
We can only furnish transcripts of work completed at Mount Holyoke College only. For official transcripts of work done elsewhere (including study abroad programs taken while at Mount Holyoke College), you must request a transcript directly from the institution at which the work was completed.
Transcript requests are generally processed within two to three business days of receipt. During busy periods (beginning and end of term, registration, and holiday breaks), transcripts may require up to five business days to process, not including mail time (see Mailing below). It is students' responsibility to request transcripts in time for their deadlines. Incomplete requests may cause processing delays.
To order a transcript, print the Transcript Request Form PDF linked above or send us a letter including the following required information in your request:
- Your name (current, as well as the exact name under which you were here, if it was different)
- Your signature
- Your current address, phone number, and email address, to be used if we need to contact you about your request
- Your class year or the year of your graduation
- The full address(es) to which you wish official transcript(s) sent
- Cash, check, or money order (payable to Mount Holyoke College) in an amount covering $4.00 for each transcript ordered
Requests should be addressed to:
Office of the Registrar
Mount Holyoke College
50 College Street
South Hadley MA 01075-1498
All transcripts are sent via USPS First Class Mail. This mailing type does not have a tracking number nor a guaranteed delivery date. Remember that the USPS may take extra time around holidays and that international mail can take two weeks or longer to reach its destination.
Please allow plenty of time to process your request. We handle all requests as quickly as possible, usually within two or three business days. When ordering under a deadline, you can help yourself and us by getting your request to us well ahead of the date by which transcripts are due to your graduate school, employer, or other destination.
If expediting your request is essential, we recommend using an overnight or other accelerated shipping method to send your request to our office. To further expedite your request, or if you would like a guaranteed delivery date and tracking number, you may purchase a pre-paid UPS label (via ups.com) or a USPS Click-N-Ship label (via cns.usps.com). Email an electronic copy of the label to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail a printed label directly with your request (no additional envelopes or packing supplies are needed). Please contact our office at 413-538-2025 or email@example.com for additional details or any questions. When we receive your mailed request, we will use the label to ship the transcript to its destination. We cannot accept labels from FedEx, DHL, or any other shipping provider.
