Ordering Transcripts

Oberlin College has appointed Credentials Inc. as the designated agent for processing and sending official electronic transcripts on behalf of Oberlin College. Official printed (paper) transcripts are available for ordering as well. Please click on the link below to enter your order.  If you are not comfortable placing an order over the internet, you can call Credentials Inc. at 847-716-3005 to place your transcript order.  There is an additional operator surcharge for placing orders over the telephone.

Online ordering dramatically decreases processing time, while electronic sending capability makes delivery virtually instantaneous. Our goal is to streamline the entire process so your transcripts reach their destinations more efficiently, giving you peace of mind by making your application and transfer processes easier. The PDF transcript that is produced using this service contains the identical information as the printed transcript and can be certified as unaltered by uploading the file to the company's website that is provided during the delivery process. Credentials Inc. has been granted the authority to deliver all such electronic transcript requests on behalf of Oberlin College and respond to any inquiries regarding the transactions.

Pricing: The total cost for one official transcript is $9.00. Payment is accepted via credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover).

Transcript Processing Time: Generally, you can expect that your transcript will be delivered to the requestor within three working days, assuming your authorization has been submitted and no holds restrict the issuance of a transcript. If you need the transcript delivered in less than three days, please contact our office for special arrangements.

Unofficial Transcripts

If you are a current student and need an unofficial transcript for reference purposes, you have several options. An unofficial transcript can be a scan or photocopy of an official transcript, or may be printed directly from Banner Self Service. There is a task in OberView titled View My Unofficial Transcript that will guide you to the correct Banner Self Service page. If you are using Banner Self Service, you may wish to copy and paste the unoffoical transcript information into a word processing program so that you can adjust the formatting if necessary.

If you are not a current student, the Office of the Registrar can provide you with an unofficial transcript. You may submit the form below to initiate your request.

An unofficial transcript is not considered certified because it is not printed on security enhanced paper and does not have the registrar's signature.
