What is my transcript?

A transcript is a certified, official copy of your permanent academic record.

The Privacy Act of 1975 prohibits us from releasing your academic record to anyone without your WRITTEN permission. Your signature is required, we can accept mail, fax and email requests if they include your scanned signature. We cannot accept phone requests or email requests that do not include a scanned signature.

Please note: We CANNOT release transcripts if you have a financial hold with Tabor College.

How To Order A Transcript

Preferred Method: Secure Transcripts® by Parchment

Tabor College students and alumni can request a transcript through Secure Transcript® provided by Parchment. To request a transcript, you must first set up a free Tabor account by following the link above.

You may request a transcript 24/7 through your Parchment account. Parchment can deliver your official transcript via secure electronic delivery or U.S. Mail for those who attended Tabor after 1989.


Tabor is providing your first transcript from Parchment at no cost, but the Parchment processing fee may be assessed. After the first transcript, the cost will be $6.00, plus the processing fee. The processing fee currently is $2.55.

Alternate Method

Parchment is the preferred method for sending a transcript. It costs less and you have the ability to track your transcript online. If necessary, you can still request a transcript directly from Tabor following the instructions below.

Important things to note:

  1. No one else may pick up your transcript without your written permission/consent. If you are authorizing someone else to obtain your transcript, identify, by name, the person and include your original written signature.
  2. If you are delinquent to the college or are in default on any student loans, transcript services are withheld.
  3. A transcript picked up by you or sent directly to you is stamped “Issued to Student.” Many institutions will not accept a transcript that is marked “Issued to Student” unless it is in a signed, sealed envelope.
