Unofficial PDF Transcripts
If you are a currently enrolled student, you may request a copy of your unofficial transcript by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org from your CMC email account. Unofficial transcripts are considered "working copies" only.
Claremont McKenna College (CMC) Army ROTC cadets who attend(ed) a college or university other than CMC must complete and return a signed transcript request form. Transcripts cannot be released without your signature. Contact email@example.com if you need assistance.
There is a $5 fee per electronic copy requested. Additional postage charges apply for paper transcripts. The charge is pre-authorized when you order, but your card will not be charged until the transcript is sent.
- Email a secure electronic copy of your official transcript;
- Mail an official paper copy transcript to specific address*; or
- Hold an official paper copy in the Registrar’s Office for you to pick up during business hours.
If you have a form or cover letter that requires action from the Registrar’s Office (a signature, or fields to be filled in), bring the form to us for completion prior to submitting your order. Allow sufficient time for us to process your form. Once we return the completed form to you, submit your transcript order and attach the completed form.
*AMCAS and LSAC require hard copies to be mailed. Select “Paper Transcript – Mailed” and upload the signed cover letter as a PDF attachment to your order during the on-line ordering process. Transcripts with attachments in formats other than PDF will not be sent.
Recipients of electronic transcripts have 30 days to access the transcript. The transcript can be downloaded up to 7 times within those 30 days.
If you requested a transcript for your own use, we recommend downloading the PDF to your computer. That way you have a permanent record you can use beyond the 30 day/7download access window. Once you download the transcript to your computer, you can use it as many times as you need to for on-line applications.
Most electronic transcripts are processed within minutes. Paper transcripts are generally processed in 1-2 business days. If you attended CMC prior to 1985 or are requesting an ROTC transcript, allow extra time for processing.
You can check the status of your order by logging on to the ordering site and clicking “Order Status” at the top of the page.
Transcripts are not processed on major holidays. There will be a delay in transcript processing for current students during grading periods at the end of each semester. See the bottom of this page for a list of holidays and blackout dates.
