Request a Transcript

Important notice: Official and unofficial transcripts will be unavailable from Monday, April 22 - Tuesday, May 21.

Pomona observes a transcript blackout period for current students while final grading period is open to faculty. During the blackout period, neither official nor unofficial transcripts are available. Current students receive multiple notifications about the transcript blackout and are advised to download an unofficial transcript and/or general education requirement audit prior to the blackout period. Transcript requests for current students received during the blackout will be fulfilled after the blackout period has ended.

Official Transcripts

Pomona uses Parchment as our transcript-processing partner. There are several options for delivery of your official transcript. When you place your order, you may select one of the following delivery methods:

  • Email a secure electronic copy of your official transcript to yourself or another recipient
  • Mail an official hard copy transcript to a specific address
  • Hold an official hard copy in the Registrar's Office for you to pick up

    Please Note: When ordering transcripts DO NOT select Pomona College as the "Recipient" for the transcript on the ordering site. This will send your transcript to the Pomona College Admissions Office. Retrieval from the Admissions Office will void the official status of the transcript.


If you are a current student log on to My.Pomona, select the “Student” Menu at the top, then select "Transcripts" within "My Academic Records." This page will give you the option to order an official transcript via Parchment, our transcript-processing partner. 

Note the message at the top of the page about the transcript blackout period. 

If you are an alumnus you will need to self-register for an account directly through the Pomona College Parchment page. Be sure to enter the correct information in the Authentication section during the account creation process - enter the name you used as a Pomona College student and only enter “Pomona” in the campus box (without the word “College”). Please save the email address and password you use to create the account to place future orders.
