There are two types of paper transcripts: official and unofficial. These are identical, except that the official transcript is signed, dated, and bears the corporate seal of the College. Official transcripts are normally sent directly to an educational institution or a potential employer at the student's request. All requests for official transcripts must be in writing with the student’s signature, via mail or fax. Official transcripts require a $5.00 fee. Official transcripts will be sent only if the student has paid all student account balances. Unofficial transcripts will be provided upon request.
In addition, while matriculated, all students have access to their transcript records, grades, and contact information
Instructions for Transcript Requests

- Destination(s): provide complete and legible addresses where your transcript is to be mailed whether it is to you or an institution, and indicate the number of copies you need.
- Enclose a check or money order made out to "Marlboro College" in the amount of $5.00 per official transcript. To pay by credit card, please fax your request by supplying us with the following information along with the information above:

Official transcripts are not released if there is a balance owed on your account. If you have graduated in the past year, official transcripts may not be released if you have not completed exit counseling with the Financial Aid office. You will be notified if this is the case.
