Ordering an Official Transcript?

Your official Colorado College transcript is bound by the Federal law FERPA (Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974)

Colorado College has retained Credentials Inc. to accept and process transcript orders online. Please click on the "Order Official CC Transcript" button above to begin your order. Colorado College has appointed Credentials Inc. as the designated agent for processing and sending official electronic transcripts on behalf of Colorado College and for processing official paper transcripts which are mailed directly from the Registrar's Office. The PDF transcript that is produced using this service contains the identical information as the printed transcript and can be certified as unaltered by uploading the file to the company's website that is provided during the delivery process. Credentials Inc. has been granted the authority to deliver all such electronic transcript requests on behalf of Colorado College and respond to any inquiries regarding the transactions. If you are uncomfortable placing an order online, you can call Credentials Inc. at 1-847-716-3005 to place your transcript order instead. There is an additional operator surcharge for placing orders over the telephone.

The quickest and most convenient way to send a transcript is to order an electronic version. In most cases, electronic transcripts are sent on the same day as the order is received. Paper transcripts normally take 3-5 business days to process.

Credentials Inc. is a fully automated online transcript ordering service that provides a secure, compliant, and easy to use transcript ordering solution.

For credit card orders, we do not actually charge your credit card at the time you place your order. Instead, we validate your card information and "pre-authorize" the amount that will eventually be charged to your card when your order is completed. If your order is cancelled before it is completed, there will not be any charge to your credit card.

You have the option to provide an attachment with an official transcript order. Once you indicate 'yes', instructions will be given after your order has been submitted. This includes attachments that need to be completed by the Registrar's Office. We do NOT accept paper attachments in the office. You are responsible for uploading the document to the order. Certain application services will auto-generate a cover sheet, or you may upload one yourself.
Please note that College Reports (Common Applications) take 2-3 business days to complete. To ensure your request is processed as quickly as possible: send the College Report with your portion completed to, include the email addresses of the college you would like it sent to. We are working quickly to process all requests however this is a form that must go to multiple offices. We appreciate your patience.
Before ordering a transcript, please review your unofficial transcript on SSB to ensure all courses, final grades, and/or your degree displays properly. Degrees take several weeks to post to the transcript, they are not conferred on the day of graduation. You have the order option to hold the transcript until grades for the current block are posted, or until your degree is posted.
