Transcripts & Verification Services


Please note: Requests for mailed transcripts are being processed once a week at this time. There are two types of transcripts, official and unofficial. Unofficial transcripts are generated primarily for your own records. They are printed on plain white paper with no official college signatures or seal. Current students may obtain an unofficial transcript from the student Portal, Lake Erie Online (LEO). Prior students may request one by completing the Transcript Request Form.

Official transcript requests must be submitted in writing with a signature or through the National Student Clearinghouse Website.

The cost for an official transcript is $5.00 for each transcript. An additional service fee applies to orders through the National Student Clearinghouse. Unofficial transcripts are provided at no cost and cannot be ordered through the National Student Clearinghouse.

Transcripts may be requested online here. Students will be given the option to order a paper transcript or an official eTranscript. Processing times apply.

The transcript request form can be printed from the following link: Transcript request form
