The quickest and most convenient way to send a transcript, is to order it online. In most cases, transcripts are sent on the same day as the order is received. See option #1 on this page for details. There are two kinds of transcripts: unofficial student copies and official copies.
An unofficial transcript is a student copy that the student can request for his/her own records.
Student's who have attended from 2003-2013 and are currently enrolled can obtain their student (unofficial) copy of their transcript free of charge through their Student Center in CUNYfirst. However, if your last date of attendance was prior to Spring 2003 or if you are unable to claim your CUNYfirst account, you will need to order your transcript online as indicated in Option 1 or complete the transcript request form as indicated in Option 2 or 3.
To access your unofficial transcript: Go to Self Service → Student Center → Academics → Other Academic drop down → Select Transcript: View Unofficial → Click the Go icon/pointer next to it → Click View Report → Unofficial transcript will open up in a new window.
