ALERT: Starting March 16, 2020, we encourage all official transcript orders as an electronic (pdf) online delivery. The electronic (pdf) online delivery option is safe and represents one of the fastest methods of delivering your transcript to the receiving institution. Due to the precautionary measures surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, regular hard-copy transcript orders may require additional time for processing.
Unofficial transcripts are available at no cost through CUNYfirst Student Self-Service or from your Dossier Account. Official transcripts may be requested by the following three methods (Online, By Mail, or In-Person).
- A transcript fee + a handling charge per transcript is automatically added for all internet orders.
SOJ students go here.
1. Current or former GC students with CUNYfirst login access. After login, go to Student Center and select the Official Transcript Ordering link.
Online Order Methods: (GC students only)
2. All other GC students
Details are listed below.
