SIU Carbondale Transcript Request Policy

Ordering SIU Carbondale Transcripts

SIU Carbondale transcripts are $5.00 per copy.  Exact pricing for filling orders will depend on the ordering options selected.  Credit card orders are subject to processing charges.  Request, payment, and student signature (when applicable) must be received before requested transcripts will be released.  NOTE:  A transcript will not be released if any outstanding financial obligations or holds exist on a student's Bursar account.  Transcripts are not available the same day and may take a few days to process (excluding delivery time).   Transcripts of Law School work must be requested through the SIU School of Law.  Please visit to request these transcripts.


IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Southern Illinois University will be closed for the holiday season beginning Thursday, December 25, 2014 through Friday, January 2, 2015.  In order for your transcript to be mailed in 2014, your order must be COMPLETED prior to 4:00 pm Tuesday, December 23.  YOUR SIGNATURE MAY BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE YOUR ORDER.  All orders placed or completed after 4:00 pm Tuesday, December 23 will be mailed when SIU reopens in 2015.


ATTENTION – STUDENTS ENROLLED FALL 2014:  Your Fall 2014 grades MAY NOT be complete and WILL NOT include academic standings until Thursday, December 18, 2014.  This means that Dean’s List, Good Standing, and Probation/Suspension notations will NOT appear on your transcript if ordered for immediate processing on or before Wednesday, December 17.  Transcripts ordered after this date will reflect academic standing notations.  If you order before and after this date, your transcripts will appear differently.
