Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are maintained in Student Services. Many educational facilities and employers request official transcripts to verify education. Official transcripts are generally sent directly from Southwest Tech to the entity requesting your transcript.

Official transcript requests will only be held in our ordering system for 30 days. Be sure that you are prepared to have it processed and sent within the following 30 days of placing an order. Transcripts requests that are waiting for grades to be posted or degrees to be awarded should not be placed more than 15 days prior to the end of your course(s) or end of term. After 30 days, orders are cancelled automatically.
