Transcripts | Western Technical College


Transcript Request Procedure

Your Western Technical College transcript is the official record of your grades. Transcripts are confidential and cannot be released without your authorization. Follow the directions below to request your Western transcript.

Official Transcript

An official transcript is a complete record of a student’s enrollment at the College and is maintained by the Registrar’s Office. An official transcript includes all courses, grades, and program graduation for credit, non-credit, and basic skills education coursework at Western.

The cost for an official transcript is $8.65 plus delivery. Official transcripts can be sent electronically, mailed, or picked up. Contact the receiving school for their policy regarding transcripts. Most schools require transcripts be sent directly to them from another college and will not accept transcripts from the student. Transcripts will be stamped “Issued to Student” when picked up unless requested to be in a sealed envelope (indicates student is NOT to open).

Note: GED transcripts cannot be ordered from this web page.  Please see information on Ordering/Verifying GED and HSED Transcripts
