Transcript Requests

KCU has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide a transcript ordering service software interface on behalf of KCU. There are multiple delivery options available through NSC, therefore we recommend reviewing transcript and delivery fees prior to requesting a transcript. The site will walk you through placing your order, including delivery options and fees. All transcript requests must be accompanied by an authorized signature of the requestor, either digital or in writing. 

You may order as many transcripts as you like in a single session. Order updates will be emailed to you and you may also track your order online. If you need your transcript to be sent with additional documents you may upload them with your transcript order.

You may order transcripts using any major credit card, which will be charged after your order has been completed. Requests for KCU transcripts will not be released until all financial requirements to the University have been met.

If needed, you may request a paper transcript request form. However, transcripts processed outside of the NSC delivery system will be subject to additional service and handling fees.
