A new way to order transcripts!

Current and former students
Central State University and Parchment offers electronic official transcript ordering service. To order an official transcript click here and to do the following:

  • Login or Register (First time users must setup an account with Parchment)
  • Select the document type (electronic or paper transcript)
  • Provide order details and consent
  • Make payment (Regular or Same Day service before 2 p.m.) – Credit and Debit cards only
  • Confirm order

Transcripts will not be furnished until all financial obligations to the University are satisfied. Questions regarding financial matters should be addressed by contacting the Bursar's Office at 937-376-6343.

If you are a first time user of Parchment, you will need to set up an account. The following information will be required to ensure proper student matching.

  • Birth date
  • Year graduated or last attended
  • Last four digits of your SSN
  • Student ID number (in use after 2003) - optional
  • E-mail address

Electronic delivery
While electronic transcripts are widely accepted, confirm with your recipients that they will accept this format before ordering. An electronic (secure, certified PDF) transcript is “official” in its electronic form as long as it is not altered. Each time the file is opened, it will be certified electronically (internet connection required) to ensure that it has not been altered. A printed copy of a PDF transcript is not official.

Official paper transcript
A paper transcript is “official” only as long as it remains in its sealed envelope. Do not open the sealed envelope if you are forwarding the document to another party (an institution, employer or other person). Open the envelope only if you have ordered the transcript for personal use.

In Person Requests
If you are near campus, official transcripts can be ordered in person at the Office of the Registrar. The cost per transcript is: $7 (two-day minimum service) or $15 (same day service if ordered by 2 p.m.)


Current and former students are responsible for faxing their own copy of an official transcript to their desired location. Official trans.cripts will not be faxed by The Office of the Registrar.
