St. Mary’s University has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to offer our students the ability to order transcripts online and have transcripts created and sent electronically. St. Mary’s University only releases complete transcripts to students. Current students can access an unofficial transcript via Gateway. The Registrar’s Office does not provide copies of transcripts for work done at other institutions. Please resolve all financial obligations to St. Mary’s University that may prevent you from obtaining transcripts.
Types of Transcripts
Official Transcripts — Official transcripts are printed on blue security paper, have the seal of St. Mary’s University, the date and signature of the University’s Registrar. Electronic transcripts through the NSC are considered official certified PDFs.
Unofficial Transcripts — Unofficial transcripts for currently enrolled students is accessible via Gateway. Former students may request unofficial transcripts via the Unofficial Transcript Request Form. Unofficial transcripts are printed on plain white paper and state “Unofficial.” Maximum of one copy.
Cost of Transcripts
Official Transcripts — Official transcripts are $10 per transcript.
You can order your transcripts online via the NSC website. The site will walk you through placing your order, including delivery options and fees. You can order as many transcripts as you like in a single session. A transcript fee will be charged per recipient. If there are documents that need to be attached with your transcript, you may upload up to two documents electronically with your order. Electronic delivery of transcripts ordered online will complete within 24 hours.
If you are unable to complete an online order of your transcript, requests for official transcripts may be made in writing with the student’s signature either in person or by mail, fax or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We cannot accept transcript requests over the telephone. Transcript request forms are available online or in person in the Registrar’s Office.

Transcripts can be picked up, mailed or be electronically sent. Allow one to two days for processing a picked up or mailed order transcript. During peak periods such as registration and graduation processing times may be delayed. Electronic transcripts requested through the National Student Clearinghouse will be processed within one business day. You can order and/or track your transcripts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the NSC website.
