When employers, higher education institutions or other organizations or agencies ask for a transcript of a student's higher education coursework, they are usually referring to transcripts which are transmitted to them by the sending institution and which bear some secure means of identifying them as unaltered, accurate records.
These are often referred to as "official transcripts." Southeast Tech official transcripts are printed on security paper and bear the official seal and the signature of the Registrar.
How to Obtain Official Transcripts
Official transcripts are issued by Southeast Tech’s Registrar's Office and bear the Registrar's signature and official seal. Official Transcripts are not processed if the student has an outstanding obligation, financial or otherwise. Cost is $7.00 per transcript.
Southeast Tech has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering and credit card payment through a secured internet connection. To order an official transcript, login to the Clearinghouse Secure Site.
