Official Transcripts

An Official Transcript is a sealed or verifiable PDF document detailing a student’s academic record at Sierra College. Students may order an official electronic transcript or elect to obtain a sealed official transcript. A PDF transcript is considered official for the recipient only. When resent, PDF transcripts become unofficial.

First two transcripts you request from Sierra College are free, excluding On Demand Transcripts, regardless of the processing option you choose.

Unofficial Transcripts are only available through your mySierra account or in-person, free of charge from Admissions and Records. They are unsealed photocopies.

Sierra College has retained Credential Solutions to accept and process Internet transcript orders through their secure site. Credential Solutions provides students with Internet transcript processing on behalf of Sierra College. The college, however, maintains the transcript records and processes the actual transcript order. TranscriptsPlus can accept an order for up to five transcripts going to five different recipients. If you need more than five transcripts or have more than five recipients, you’ll need to place additional orders.
