Transcript Request Procedure and Form
I. Transcript Information
A transcript is a certified, official of a student's permanent academic record. It contains confidential information and cannot be released to anyone without the student's written permission and signature.
Transcripts for a student's secondary and previous college education, which have been submitted to Garden City Community College (GCCC) as a requirement for admission, become a part of the Registrar's official file. GCCC does not reissue or certify copies of transcripts from other institutions. Transcripts must be ordered directly from the institution where the coursework was taken.
II. Transcript Fee
Each transcript costs $5.00 and must be paid in advance by cash, check or money order (payable to GCCC), or Credit Card (Discover, MasterCard, VISA accepted). The cost of a faxed transcript is $5.00. All fees are payable in advance.
III. How To Order A Transcript
Note: Transcript requests will normally be processed within 24 hours of receipt. However, a longer period of time may be required for processing at the end of each semester and during peak enrollment periods.
