Official Transcripts

The College of Charleston has authorized Credentials Solutions to provide official transcript ordering via the internet.  Order online via MyCharleston or the Credentials Solutions website or by phone directly through Credentials Solutions.   A major credit card is required. 

Transcripts may be mailed, sent electronically (when available) or picked up at the College of Charleston.  The cost for a transcript that is mailed or sent electronically is $10.  A transcript that is picked up at the College of Charleston is $12.  Additional charges apply for FedEx and international orders.  Effective November 1, 2017, the College of Charleston is discontinuing the provision of free offical transcripts for active employees.

Current and former students should use the Credentials Solutions ordering service available through MyCharleston to authenticate and avoid completing the Signature Authorization Form.

Teacher Recertification students and others with additional questions, please view our Official Transcript Ordering Guide (PDF) or  Transcript FAQ (PDF) document.

Transcripts Involving Coursework Prior to 1976

You may use the Credentials online ordering system. Because academic records prior to 1976 are preserved on microfilm, your records cannot be sent electronically. You must select a mail or pick-up option. Additional processing time may be required to retrieve your record from microfilm and create copies.

Transcript Key

Included with each official transcript request is a key to transcript grades and symbols.  View Transcript Key (PDF).
