Official Transcripts

An official transcript is different than an unofficial transcript because:

  • It is used as official documentation for transferring credits to another institution, job applications, scholarships, etc.
  • It originates in the Student Records Office
  • It is sent to a specified recipient directly
  • It is printed on specialized paper and includes both the Registrar's signature and institutional seal
  • It is delivered in a sealed envelope. Once the envelope is opened, it can no longer be used as official documentation and becomes an unofficial transcript.

To request your unofficial transcript, follow the steps below.

  1. Log in to the Online Student Center (If you need your User ID and/or password, please contact the Enrollment Center at (616) 234-3300.)
  2. Select "Online Student Center" from the Enterprise Menu
  3. Under "Academics," select "Grades or Transcripts"
  4. Select "request official transcript"
  5. Indiciate quantity
  6. Provide recipient information (See below)
  7. Select "Submit"
  • Step 6 continued: For a home address on file at GRCC, select "Send To My Address" and choose from the dropdown menu. For a specific recipient such as another institution, provide the recipient name in the "Send To" text field, select "Edit Address" to provide the complete recipient street address, and select "OK." For pickup in the Student Records Office, type "GRCC pickup" in the "Send To" text field, select "Edit Address" and type "143 Bostwick Ave. NE" into the "Address 1" text field, "Grand Rapids" into the "City" text field, "MI" into the "State" text field, "49503" into the "Postal" text field, and select "OK".

Once your request is submitted, a "Transcript Request Confirmation" will appear. You may wish to print this page for your records. Receiving this confirmation assures you that your request was successful, and your transcript will be processed within 3 business days. If you selected the GRCC pickup option, the official transcript can only be picked up by the student when photo identification is provided.

NOTE: If you have holds on your account, you will not be able to view your unofficial transcript or request an official transcript. The Student Records Office can only provide status information on the transcript request process up until it has been sent. We are not responsible for mail delivery times or how the recipient processes incoming mail.
