Frequently Asked Questions
What is an electronic transcript?
An electronic transcript is an official transcript that has been digitally signed, certified, and delivered via e-mail. Please make sure your recipient accepts official electronic transcripts before submitting an electronic transcript request.
How do I have a paper copy mailed?

Ask your recipient which is preferred. Remember that if you are a current student, your unofficial transcript is available for download 24/7 via My.Pomona.
