New Transcript Procedures as of June 2013
A transcript is the official academic record of a student’s enrollment at Roosevelt University, including all undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral coursework. All transcript requests are $10.00 per copy, plus shipping and/or handling charges. Exact pricing for filling orders will depend on the ordering options selected.
Beginning on June 3, 2013, all transcript orders must be submitted online.
Transcript requests may no longer be submitted by mail, fax, or paper forms. Roosevelt University has retained Credentials Inc. to assist with transcript orders. Credentials Inc., uses current web encryption to secure your personal information. If you are hesitant about placing an order over the internet you may choose to contact Credentials Inc. directly by calling 847-716-3005 to place your transcript request. There is an additional $10 surcharge for orders placed over the telephone.
Current students may request to hold (delay) the processing of a transcript until:
- Grades for current term are posted to their record
- Grades will be updated
- Degree is posted to their record
