Access Transcripts (Current Students)

This topic discusses how to view an unofficial transcript and how to request an official transcript. Additionally, an explanation of how a service indicator might hold the release of your official transcript is provided.

 

NOTE:

You must pay in full for each online transcript before it is processed. The fee is $5.00 per transcript. A $7.75 convenience fee is applied to each order where payment is made with a credit card.

Alternately, you may obtain an official transcript by coming to the Transcript section of the Office of Admissions and Records (University Center A3900) and presenting your student ID.

 

CAUTION! If you are viewing/printing the unofficial transcript, you must have the browser's pop-up blocker turned off. For instructions on how to do this, reference the Allowing Pop Ups section of the Browser Settings—Tips and Tricks How-To topic.

IMPORTANT! A variety of service indicators (holds) can block access to features of your student record.

HOWEVER, if you have the Academic Record Review service indicator (SI), that particular SI blocks ONLY the release of your official transcript until the pending review is complete.

There are four possible Academic Record Review types, and your record could be under review for only one, any combination of, or all four of those review types. To see what kind of Academic Record Review SI has been applied to your record, click the Academic Record Review link for details.

 

3. Upon clicking the Academic Record Review link, the Hold Item appears, and the Instructions area notes the reason for the SI. The four possibilities types of review are:

FSU Credit Reviews

Program/Plan Review

Transfer Credit Review

Transcript Notes
