Requesting Transcripts from Kettering College

The student may obtain an official transcript by submitting an electronic request or a written request to the records office. Student accounts must have no “holds” for loan exit counseling and be at a zero balance, and graduates must complete all graduation requirements for transcript release clearance.

There are two ways students may use to request transcripts from Kettering College:


  1. Electronic request: Students may complete the process for electronic transfer of Kettering College transcripts by using to request official transcripts that will be sent to participating institutions of higher learning.
  2. Written request: Federal regulations require a written release from the student. This release may be in the form of a letter or completed transcript request form.  All requests must have a signature in order to release the record. Requests may be sent to: Registrar's Office, Kettering College, 3737 Southern Boulevard, Kettering, OH 45429. At this time we cannot accept requests by telephone or e-mail.Transcript requests received without payment or signature cannot be honored.

Is there a transcript fee?
Electronic requests: For electronically issued transcripts, Kettering College waives college processing fees.  Students will be required to pay a $3 fee for electronic processing.

Written requests: A $5 fee is charged per transcript for written requests. In-person payment may be cash, check, or money order. Mailed payments should be made by check or money order. We urge you not to send cash through the mail. A $7 charge per copy is made for same-day service.

How are my transcripts sent?

Electronic requests: If a school is not a participant in the electronic transcript process, transcripts are sent by first-class mail through the U.S. Postal System. If a school is a participant, the transcript is sent via electronic transfer.

Written requests: Transcripts are sent by first-class mail through the U.S. Postal System. Most colleges refuse hand-carried transcripts and require transcripts be mailed directly to them. If the recipient requires transcripts in a sealed envelope, the initial request must indicate accordingly. We do not e-mail or fax transcripts.

When can I expect my transcripts to be sent?
For both written and electronic requests, you should allow five to ten business days for processing during end-of-the-term grade processing times. Regular transcripts are released within three to five business days. Written request same-day service is available for $7 per transcript copy and will be mailed within 24 hours. Same-day service does not mean transcripts are sent by express mail. Students must present photo identification when picking up transcripts.

Can I order an "unofficial transcript"?
No. All academic transcripts are official.
