HOUSTON (May 17, 2019) – Texas Southern University has refined its process for current students and alumni requesting official university transcripts. With the click of a button, thanks to a partnership with the National Student Clearinghouse, a transcript can be delivered electronically without a visit to the campus registrar’s office.

“This is a win for both our current and former students,” said TSU president, Dr. Austin A. Lane. “In today’s environment, quick turnaround with maximum convenience is the expectation, so TSU is delivering upon that expectation. This is long overdue.”

Students will have multiple delivery options once they make the electronic request. The transcript can be handled electronically, via USPS first-class mail, or in-person pickup, if desired, on the second floor of the E.O. Bell Building. TSU does not release copies of transcripts received from other institutions.
