Regardless of how ordered, transcripts cannot be provided immediately upon request.  It takes approximately 3-5 business days to process transcripts.  During our busy periods, it can take up to 5-7 business days.

Your transcript request must be in writing and should include:

  • Your name (or any former name your records may be under)
  • Your current address and phone number
  • Purchase ID number and/or social security number
  • Your status ie., Graduated (including all degrees received at Purchase), Withdrawn, Continuing Education, or Current.
  • Whether an official or unofficial transcript is to be sent.
  • Where the transcript is to be sent.
  • Any special handling instructions.
  • If there is a deadline to be met, please make note of it; every effort will be made to honor it.
  • Your signature (transcripts cannot be released without your signature.)
  • Currently attending students should indicate if they wish requests to be held for current semester grades and/or posting of degree.

Note:  If you are requesting multiple transcripts to be sent to the same address, please use only one request form and mark the number you need.  There is a limit of twenty (20) transcripts that may be requested at one time.  If there is an extenuating circumstance that occurs which makes it necessary for you to receive more that 20 at one time, please contact the office at (914)251-6361.

We are not permitted to provide transcript services to any current or former student who owes money to the College. Please insure that all flags have been cleared prior to requesting a transcript.
