Transcript Requests

Your request for an official Capella transcript is fulfilled through our vendor, Parchment, a leading company in secure transcript delivery. They manage transcript processing and delivery, while Capella retains the official transcript data.*

To request your transcript, you will need to register with Parchment. Once you register with them and they have your electronic signature on file, future requests are easy to make.

The first step is to complete a Transcript Authorization Form (TAF) and sign it electronically, so Parchment can process your request for a Capella University official transcript. Requests will not be processes without the electronic signature.

Ordering tips

  • During the ordering process, you will select the recipient of your Capella transcript on the Select Destinations page. Use the Other Destinations tab to specify recipients of your transcript for both admission and employment purposes. Don't select Capella as a destination; we already have access to your transcript.
  • As part of the one-time account setup and for identity verification, you will be asked to provide either your Capella student ID number, or the last 4 digits of your Social Security number.
  • If you have an outstanding financial balance with Capella, your transcript cannot be released. If you have requested a transcript, Parchment will email you to tell you that your transcript is on hold. A transcript fee will be assessed, even if your transcript is on hold.
  • If you think there might be a hold because of the status of your account, contact the Business Office at 1.866.933.5994 before ordering a transcript.
  • If your transcript request has been placed on hold, you have 30 days to settle your Capella account, and then your transcript request will be fulfilled. If your account balance is not cleared within 30 days, your transcript order will be cancelled without a refund. If you cancel your order before the 30-day deadline, your transcript fee will be refunded in full.
