ELECTRONIC TRANSCRIPTS should only be sent directly to the person who needs to use them.  DO NOT request electronic transcripts to be sent to yourself, as you will not be able to print or forward them.

Transcripts issued to the student are stamped “ISSUED TO STUDENT” and enclosed in a sealed envelope. If you are forwarding the transcript to another party (e.g., another college or university, potential employer, etc.) where an official transcript is required, you should not open the envelope.

Cornell cannot provide copies of transcripts from other schools you attended. If transcripts are needed from those schools, please contact them directly.

Unofficial Transcripts:
Unofficial copies of Cornell transcripts are available to currently enrolled students only without charge. They do not bear the registrar’s signature or College seal and are for your use only. Log in to our secure student records site to view and print your current class schedule, unofficial transcript, and an enrollment verification statement.

Transcript requests are processed on Tuesdays and Thursdays; transcripts cannot be mailed on holidays or Winter Break when the College is closed.
