Request Transcripts

Currently, Southeast Tech can only provide transcripts electronically and will be delivered in PDF format. You will not experience any delays in the delivery of electronic transcripts. An email address for the transcript recipient will be required during the request process. To be considered official, the transcript must be received directly from Southeast Tech.

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 may be requested online at www.getmytranscript.com. Transcripts will be processed within 5–7 days of receipt by the Registrar's Office. 
 
Cost 
Electronic PDF: $6.75 
 
How to Order 
  1. Go to www.getmytranscript.com.
  2. Type in "Southeast Technical Institute" in the drop-down box. 
  3. Start the transcript ordering process and enter the required information. 
  4. Once complete, your card will be charged, and Southeast Tech will receive your request. 
Note: A transcript will not be released if the Registrar's Office has been notified of financial indebtedness to Southeast Tech. 
Unofficial Transcripts may be requested by emailing registrar@southeasttech.edu. There is no fee for requesting an unofficial transcript. Transcripts will be processed within 5–7 days of receipt by the Registrar's Office.

Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) was implemented in 1974 as a federal law to protect the privacy of student education records. FERPA also gives students the right to review their education records, seek to amend inaccurate information in their records, and provide consent for the disclosure of their records. This law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA information is published in the Southeast Tech Catalog/Handbook.
