Understanding Transfer Credit on Your Transcript

Releasing Transcripts Sent to the College

Allegheny College cannot provide copies of official or unofficial transcripts to students or to other third parties. This includes all forms of transfer credit, including credit by examination, college in high school courses, study away, summer courses, etc. Transcripts are provided to Allegheny College at the request of a student with the understanding that they will not be shared with anyone other than the intended recipient. Any transcript is a static version of a dynamic document and may have changed since the transcript was issued. Students who need copies of their transcripts to share with graduate schools, employers, fellowship providers, or for any other purposes, must request those transcripts from the school of origin.
