Ordering Transcripts

Notice: On Tuesday, May 24 we moved to a new storefront to upgrade transcript services. 

What this means for you:

  • An update of your biographical information; such as name, DOB, dates of attendance; will be required and will take a few minutes to complete. 
  • You will create a new password, which allows you to access any documents related to your academics that are available in the Parchment system.

We expect the new storefront will provide you with an enhanced transcript ordering experience. For questions, please email univreg@cornell.edu or call 607-255-4232 (M-F; 10am-1pm, 2pm-4pm). 

-----------------------------------------

Transcript services are provided in partnership with Parchment. All requests must be submitted by the current or former student. Requests submitted by parents or any unauthorized parties will not be honored. During peak processing times; May-June, August-mid-October and December-February processing and mail delivery time may take additional time. 

To Begin Your Order with a Cornell NetID

Student Center - login with netID and password

  1. Navigate to "Other Academics"
  2. Select "Official Transcript" from the drop-down menu

Student Essentials - login with netID and password

  1. Navigate to "Academics"
  2. Select "Order a Transcript"

To find your NetID, go to the Cornell Directory and enter your name. The screen that appears should include your NetID. Next, go to NetID Self-Service to activate your NetID.

If ordering through Student Center, under Other Academic, select Official Transcript from the drop-down menu, to access the ordering site. If ordering through Student Essentials, under Academic, select Order a Transcript, to access the ordering site.

If you cannot access the ordering site, you may need to turn off pop-up blocking on your web browser or allow that site to open pop-up windows in your browser preferences.

After you submit your order, you will receive email messages confirming your order and updates to your order processing status. All requests for official electronic transcripts are typically processed within four hours of the order being placed unless you receive an email notification that your order was placed "on-hold". If your order is placed "on-hold" it could take 4-5 business days to be processed. Anyone with Adobe Reader will be able to receive a secure transcript. Paper transcripts are typically processed within 1-2 business days.

Self Registration Ordering Site - create new account and set password

After you submit your order, you will receive email messages confirming your order. Your order will be placed "on-hold" while our staff research your record and processes your request. Requests for paper or electronic transcripts prior to 1982 will be processed within 4-5 business days. 

Including Attachments with Transcripts

The transcript ordering site now includes the capability of adding attachments to both paper and electronic copies of your transcript. Accepted file types include .pdf, .jpg, .doc, .docx, .tiff, .txt, and .png. Please note that all attachments are delivered as submitted. If you require any part of the form to be completed by a college official, please work with the appropriate office(s) prior to uploading and submitting your attachments.

Electronic Transcript Generation for AMCAS

Students and alumni applying to medical schools can submit secure pdf electronic transcripts from our online ordering site directly to AMCAS (American Medical College Application Service).

Begin your order as specified above. After selecting Order Now from the welcome page, select the AMCAS eTranscript option. You will be prompted to enter their AAMC ID number thereby ensuring that AMCAS can link the transcript request to the correct account.

Download the Transcript Request Form, complete, print and sign the form, and mail or fax it to the Office of the University Registrar. Your request should be limited to 10 copies per order.
