Requesting Buffalo State Transcripts

Official Buffalo State transcripts are not issued directly to students but are forwarded, upon request, to authorities whom the student designates. Student copies may be ordered for personal use. A $5 fee is charged for each transcript request. Photo identification is required when picking up student copies. Transcript request forms are available in the Registrar's Office, Moot Hall 210, or online.  

Transcripts will not be furnished for students who have incurred a financial obligation to the college. Transcript requests sent by mail must include the student's name, current address, Social Security number, dates of attendance, graduation date (if applicable), name and address of the party to whom the transcript is to be sent, the student's signature authorizing release of the transcript, and a $5 check or money order payable to Buffalo State College. All checks or money orders must include the student's social security number. Transcript requests by telephone cannot be honored.

Requests are filled in the order they are received. Sufficient time is necessary for processing. Requests for transcripts should be made well in advance of the date needed.
