Records & Registration

Requesting Transcripts

Requests for transcripts are processed by the Office of Student Records. Please select the type of transcript you need below and follow the instructions to complete the request.

  • Official Transcripts

    Based on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (1974), requests for official McLennan Community College transcript requests must be in writing by the student with the student’s signature. FERPA guidelines permit colleges to accept electronic consents and signatures to issue transcripts to themselves or a third party when reasonable security is provided for the process. McLennan adheres to the Federal Student Aid (FSA) "safe harbor" standards for electronic signatures. The U.S. Department of Education has determined that the FSA standards satisfy the FERPA written consent requirement. The method in which students access the National Transcript Clearinghouse and/or WebAdvisor by using PINs and passwords that are only known or possessed by the student, identifies and authenticates the student as the source of the electronic consent. Students can requests transcripts using one of the following options:

    • National Transcript Clearing House

      Go to www.getmytranscript.com. Select McLennan Community College from the lsit of schools and click submit. (This is the fastest way to receive a transcript.)

      Please note: Cost is $2.25 per transcript. Official transcripts may be delivered via secure PDF delivery for an additional charge of $1.75 per transcript, for a total of $4.00 per transcript. Students are encouraged to select this Option for fastest delivery. Electronic delivery allows the student to be notified via email or text (if applicable) when the transcript has been received by the third party. It is the student’s responsibility to confirm the email address provided and that the third party accepts this delivery method.
