Your Mid-State Technical College transcript is the official record of your grades. Transcripts are confidential and cannot be released without your authorization. Please follow the directions below to request your official Mid-State transcript or access your unofficial transcript.
Requesting Official Transcripts
Official transcripts are needed to transfer credit to another college/institution and occasionally are requested by employers. Requests for Mid-State transcripts are made through Credentials Inc., a secure online service designed to safely and efficiently process your request.
What you'll need
To request an official transcript, you will need a credit/debit card and an email address. Financial obligations to the college must be met for transcripts to be issued.
There is a $6 charge per transcript for regular delivery. Federal Express delivery is also available for an additional fee.
When completing your request via the Credentials system, you will fill out certain information to “authorize” or prove that you are the student requesting the transcript. Your order may qualify for “Automatic Authorization” if all the following conditions are met:
- You attended Mid-State after 1983.
- The billing name on the credit card used to place the order matches both your name on the order and your name in Mid-State’s records.
- The social security number and birthdate provided in the order matches your Mid-State records.
- There are no attachments that need to be included with your transcript.
If the conditions for automatic authorization are not met, you may be asked to submit a signed form authorizing the release of your transcript before your order can be processed.
Credentials Inc. will notify you when your order has been successfully authorized.
Regular delivery orders are processed in 1–2 business days after authorized plus USPS mailing time if not delivered electronically.
