Ordering Official Transcripts
You will need your SID number. If you have lost or forgotten it, download the SID request form.
Official Transcript Requests cannot be processed if a student has ANY holds or blocks on their profile. To find out if you have any holds or blocks on your account prior to submitting your Official Transcript Request, you can contact the Admissions and Registration Office (see contact info on side bar).

About Official Transcripts
Official transcripts are issued by North Seattle College Registrar's Office and bear the registrar's signature and college seal. Official transcripts take approximately 48 hours to process. All transcripts are mailed to the address(es) provided in the request.
Please expect a longer than usual processing time during the week directly following the end of the quarter. We cannot accept RUSH orders. All requests are processed in the order that they are received. Official transcripts are not processed if the student has an outstanding obligation, financial or otherwise.
Unofficial transcripts are free and may be retrieved from the Grades/Unofficial Transcript page on the Online Services Kiosk Web pages. Unofficial copies have neither the college seal nor an official signature. They are most often used for advising and employment-related purposes. Students and alumni may access unofficial transcripts as often as needed without charge.
How to Read Your Transcript
North transcripts, particularly those produced prior to July 1988, may contain letter codes which are unfamiliar or obsolete. For help in deciphering abbreviations and codes and in determining your GPA, check out Transcripts Legend and Determine GPA.
