SIU Carbondale Transcript Request Policy


INCLEMENT WEATHER NOTICE:  On those days when the University is closed – or is operating virtually – due to inclement weather, transcripts will not be mailed out, nor will they be available for pickup.  Thank you for your understanding.


IMPORTANT COVID-19 NOTICE:  For your safety and for the safety of our office staff, transcript orders must be placed online or through the mail (see details below).  Online ordering is recommended and is faster.


Avoid delays!  Order your PDF electronic transcript today.  These are normally e-mailed within minutes of your completed order.  Please note:  Your hand-written signature might be required to complete your PDF transcript order.  Also, this option is not available for students who attended prior to Fall 1990.


Ordering SIU Carbondale transcripts:

SIUC transcripts consist of a student's complete undergraduate and/or graduate academic history at SIUC.  (Transcripts will show current term courses as in-progress starting the fifth week of the term.)  Students who need an official transcript for themselves – or for submission to an employer or other educational institution – may order official transcripts as described below.

Students who attended SIUC beginning Fall 1990 or later may view their unofficial transcript within SalukiNet Self-Service.  However, students who attended prior to Fall 1990 will not be able to do so because individual coursework information prior to Fall 1990 is stored only on physical record cards at the University.


Official SIUC transcripts can be ordered in the following ways:

  • Ordering online (via our third party vendor Parchment):
    • Ordering is available 24 hours a day
    • Complete this form (your signature may be required in certain cases)
    • Include your payment via credit or debit card (costs are shown here)
    • There are options to pick up transcripts from our office or have them mailed to the recipients via 1st class mail
    • This is the only way to mail transcripts via FedEx expedited delivery
    • This is the only way to send electronic transcripts for students who attended Fall 1990 and after
  • Ordering by mail:
    • Complete and sign this paper form
    • Mail the completed form and your check or money order to our office
    • The cost is $5 per copy
    • Your transcripts will be mailed to the recipients via 1st class mail

PLEASE NOTE:  You cannot order transcripts using e-mail, fax, or the phone.  Also, for any transcripts that will need to be mailed out via 1st class mail, such transcripts will usually leave our office within 2 to 10 business days from receipt of your order, with delivery time according to USPS standards (so please plan accordingly).


The student assumes all responsibility for the following:

  • Reading these SIUC Transcript Office policies and instructions;
  • Ensuring that the recipient can and will accept the chosen method of transcript delivery;
  • Providing the correct mailing address and/or email address;
  • Meeting the recipient's deadlines for submission of the transcript;
  • Ensuring that the recipient opens any electronic transcript within 30 days.
