Requesting a Transcript:
Note: Students who attended High Point University prior to 1984 must provide a copy of a form of photo identification along with the completed transcript request by mail, fax, or email: Legacy Transcript Services. Only one recipient may be identified per request form.
For students who attended High Point University after 1984, online transcripts requests can be made via the National Student Clearinghouse or in person at the Office of the Registrar in several formats:
- Mailed or Electronic: Through the National Student Clearinghouse, current and former students can request electronic transcripts in the form of a PDF or mailed paper transcripts. The charge for PDF or USPS mailed transcripts is $5.00 per transcript. Additional charges apply for express mailing via FedEx.
- Mailed transcripts are printed on security paper, bear the official University seal and signature of the University Registrar, and are mailed directly to other institutions or agencies in sealed envelopes. Transcripts will not be considered official if faxed, emailed or released directly to student or alumni.
- Electronic transcripts are secure PDF documents delivered either to a participating university via Electronic Transfer or to an individual through the National Student Clearinghouse’s secure portal. PDF transcripts are processed and delivered on demand. Please note that we cannot produce electronic PDF transcripts for students who attended prior to 1984. If a PDF transcript is sent directly to a student’s personal email address, it will NOT be considered official.
