Transcript Request

Requesting a Transcript


Missouri Southern State University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to process official transcript requests. Official transcripts will not be issued if there is a hold on your student account due to an outstanding financial obligation owed to the institution.

Official transcripts cost $15 per copy. The charge can be paid using any major credit or debit card. Charges will only be applied after the transcript has been processed and sent.

You will have the option of choosing the delivery method of your official transcript. You can choose to have your transcript sent electronically or physically as a paper copy through the mail. 

However, if you are mailing your transcript to another institution, the institution may limit their preferred way of receiving transcripts. This may limit the delivery options available to you. 

Official transcripts sent through the mail to a home address or other location will be sealed in an envelope with stamps across the seal. For mailed transcripts to be official, the transcript should remain in the sealed envelope and delivered to the intended recipient. A transcript in an opened envelope with a broken seal is no longer considered an official transcript. The Registrar’s Office recommends sending your transcript directly to the intended recipient.

When do you want your transcript processed? You will be required to choose from:

· Current Transcript – Process As Is

· After Degree is Awarded

· After Grades Are Posted

If you are ordering a transcript when you have previously earned a degree from MSSU, then select the Current Transcript – Process As Is option.

If you are ordering a transcript to be sent immediately after your final grades are posted, or your degree has been awarded for the current academic term, then choose the respective option.

Currently enrolled students or former students with no access to Lionet who want an unofficial transcript may either order an official one or pick up a copy from the Office of the Registrar in Hearnes Hall 101. A valid state ID will be required. Unofficial transcripts will only be issued to the student.
