Transcript Requests Sent by US Mail
Due to our limited access on campus, we currently only process transcripts once a week on Wednesday. All request received by Sunday will generally be processed the same week. Additionally, we have very limited ability to send transcripts electronically and only with a small number of institutions within the state of Washington; if we are able to we will process your request electronically, otherwise all transcripts are sent via US Mail with no tracking option.
The most efficient way to order your transcript is through the National Clearinghouse. If you choose to submit your payment through South, there may delays in processing payment thus holding up the timeliness of mailing your transcript. Click here to order from National Clearinghouse.
For more information see our Transcripts webpage.
Transcripts Sent via US Mail for Evaluation
If you sent a transcript for evaluation via US Mail that would have reached our offices after March 10, only a few of those mails were received before the college move to fully remote operations and US Mail began to be held. If you submitted a transcript for evaluation using US Mail and have not received confirmation of that evaluation, email SEvaluations@seattlecolleges.edu to make alternative arrangements.
