Transcript Requests

COVID-19 Update

In an effort to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus disease, Holy Cross employees have been asked to transition to working remotely as much as possible for the foreseeable future.  While the Office of the Registrar staff will continue to work, answer phones and emails, and process transcript requests during this remote working period, this may mean that we are in our on-campus office and checking on-campus mail less frequently.

In light of this, for quickest transcript processing, we encourage students and alumni from the Class of 2003 and later consider submitting requests for electronic official transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse. For quickest transcript processing for those from the Class of 2002 or earlier, if possible, we kindly ask that you email (not fax or mail) your Holy Cross Transcript Request form to our office at registrars@holycross.edu or that you submit a request for paper official transcript through the National Student Clearinghouse.

Note:  Requests for official transcripts that are faxed or mailed will still be processed during the remote working period, but there may be some delay.


Transcripts at Holy Cross

An official transcript of the College record will be issue by this office either with the written consent of the student or by electronic request made through the National Student Clearing house.  Transcript requests cannot be accepted over the phone.  All official transcripts bear the signature of the Registrar of the College, and paper official transcripts also bear the impression of the Seal of the College.

No transcripts are sent by email, and transcripts may not be released in the case of a Bursar Transcript Hold.
