Your Albion College transcript is a permanent record of all coursework you have completed at Albion College, all transfer coursework, and all classes that you are currently registered for at Albion College. Transfer coursework is shown on the transcript through credit earned. No grades are transferred to Albion College. Any course that you are currently registered for will be listed as “courses in progress.”
You have the option of requesting transcripts electronically via the National Student Clearinghouse or by submitting a completed Transcript Request form directly to the Registrar’s Office.
You will need either your Student ID number or your Social Security Number to order a transcript electronically.
