Official Transcript Orders

All official transcripts are usually processed 24-48 hours after order except during peak periods of the year.  Use the Online Transcript Ordering System to submit an order for a transcript in either electronic PDF format or the traditional paper format from Colorado School of Mines. All payments are collected at the time the order is processed.

All PDF transcripts are encrypted with security properties to protect the integrity of the academic record, and may not be accepted for upload by unsophisticated websites.  It is always the responsibility of the student to ensure that the transcript will be accepted as official by any third party and that the recipient will accept an electronic version of their transcript. 

All Electronic PDF Transcripts are available for download for one week once the order has been processed. It is the responsibility of the requestor to save the PDF file before the download period expires. If the download period has expired, a new PDF transcript must be requested.

Pre-1988 Coursework:

Please note that if you completed ANY coursework at the Colorado School of Mines prior to Fall 1988, you may order a PDF transcript. Please select Pre-1988 Official Transcript through the Online Transcript Ordering System.
