Federal law requires that we issue transcripts only upon receipt of a signed request. This means that transcripts may never be ordered by telephone or by electronic mail (and, in any case, 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 herself. They cannot be accepted from family members, friends, employers, or any third person. Again, this is required under Federal law; and it is for your protection that we must observe that law.
There is a charge of $4.00 (U.S. currency from a U.S. bank only, please) for each transcript sent. We regret that we cannot issue transcripts on credit, but must have full payment with each order; orders not accompanied by payments will be returned (unprocessed) to the sender.
We can furnish transcripts of work completed at Mount Holyoke College only. For official transcripts of work done elsewhere, you must write directly to the institution where the work was done.
The College reserves the right not to issue transcripts if the student's financial obligations to the College are not paid or are overdue.
To order a transcript, use print the form linked above or write to us, including the following required information in your request:
- Your name (current, as well as the exact name under which you were here)
- Your signature
- Your current address, in full
- The class of which you were a member, or the year of your graduation
- The full address(es) to which you wish official transcript(s) sent
- Check made out 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
Please allow us plenty of time to process your request. We handle all requests as quickly as possible, usually within two or three working days. At our busiest times of year (from mid-December through mid-March, and in particular during the December holidays), it may take a bit longer to honor your request. Many other students and alumnae have deadlines; you can help yourself and us by getting your request to us well ahead of the date by which transcripts are due somewhere else. Also remember that the U.S. Postal Service may take extra time around holidays and that international mail can take two weeks or longer to reach its destination.
If further expediting of your request is essential, you may purchase a pre-paid UPS label (via UPS.com) and email that label to firstname.lastname@example.org. When we receive your mailed request, we will use the UPS label to ship the transcript to its destination. We cannot accept labels from the U.S. Postal Service or FedEx.
