Ripon College maintains a complete academic record of a student’s enrollment at the College. An official transcript is a copy of the student’s academic record, signed by the Registrar and embossed with the College seal. In compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, all transcript requests MUST BE MADE BY THE STUDENT. Requests from a third party, including parents, will not be fulfilled.
Normal processing time for all transcripts is 5-7 business days after the request is received. During peak work times, holiday breaks and end-of-term activities the processing time may be extended. Transcripts are not released until all financial obligations to Ripon College are met.
Official transcripts may be ordered in three ways:
1. Online: Secure electronic transcript delivery or paper transcripts: this method requires payment for the transcript with a credit card. The fee per transcript is $7.00. Order online here.
2. Mail: Paper transcripts only: complete the following form and mail along with a check, money order or cash payment. The fee per transcript is $4.00. Transcript Request Form (PDF)

- The name you had when you attended the College
- A contact number in case we would need to contact you
