Academic Transcripts

RIT maintains a single academic transcript reflecting all courses taken at RIT.  The transcript is the University’s certified statement of your academic record.  All transcripts are provided on security sensitive paper (or secure PDF) that contains the RIT seal and the signature of the Registrar. All requests for transcripts must go through the Parchment Services using the appropriate link below. Requests made by paper, email, phone, or other methods outside of Parchment Services will not be processed.

Unofficial Transcripts:

Current students and recent alumni can review and print a copy of their unofficial transcript from the Student Information System (SIS) at no cost.

RIT complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, which governs access and release of information from student educational records.  More information on Student Privacy.

Additional Information:

  • Transcripts are not released for students or alumni with outstanding financial or student conduct obligations.
  • Transcripts will NOT be distributed by fax.
  • RIT does not provide copies of other institutions' transcripts. Transcripts from high schools or other colleges cannot be duplicated; you must contact them directly for official transcripts.


Students/former students/alumni who need to send their transcripts to one of the associations found here, can do so via the above method. These associations are all considered In-Network Recipients and have already established accounts with Parchment. Simply type in their abbreviation (AMCAS, AACN etc) in the search box when ordering, select the recipient and follow the process through to checkout. Often, these associations accept and prefer electronic transcripts which are a lower cost and quicker solution.
