Please read the following for information on the available ways to send, request, and pay for transcripts.
Methods of sending or receiving
Electronically: LCU sends official transcripts electronically and securely using eSCRIP-SAFE®. Transcripts can be sent to a participating school in this list or to any individual or institution as long as we receive the recipient’s email. Note: The transcript is not sent insecurely as an email attachment. The email is used to notify the recipient of how to download the transcript.
Advantages of electronic transcripts:
- It’s cheaper. You pay only $7 per electronic transcript, whereas you pay $10 per mailed transcript.
- Faster transmission.
- Can’t be lost in the mail.
- You receive an email confirmation when it is sent and when it is opened by the recipient.
Important: Students enrolled before 1995 may not be eligible for electronic transcripts.
There is no reason to request more than one electronic transcript to be sent to the same email address or an electronic transcript to be sent to a school that says they do not accept electronic transcripts. There is no refund for transcript fees paid for unnecessary transcripts.
Also, if a mailed transcript is ordered to be sent to a school that accepts electronic transcripts from eSCRIP-SAFE®, the transcript will be sent electronically, rather than mailed, and there will be no refund for the $3 difference in charge.
Regular Mail: Sometimes a student or alum may still need a sealed official transcript to include in an application packet or to take to a job interview. If you have these or similar situations we can still mail an official transcript to you.
If you’re in the area, you may stop by the Registrar’s Office to pick up a transcript. Please allow some time for processing, as the office can sometimes be busy. Regular hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. most weeks from Monday through Friday.
