Transcripts

Requesting transcripts

Transcripts being sent to a Minnesota State College or University do not need to be ordered from Riverland.  Please contact the school's Admissions or Registrar's Office and ask them to retrieve an etranscript for you. Click here for a list of Minnesota State Schools

Official transcripts have the Registrar's signature and are printed on security paper. Official transcripts are not issued to students. An official transcript must be mailed directly to an educational institution or an official of an organization.

Online Ordering - Riverland has authorized National Student Clearinghouse to provide its online transcript ordering service.  This service provides students with timely notices regarding their transcript request as well as order status history.
