Buffalo State College has appointed Credentials Solutions as the designated agent for processing and sending official electronic transcripts on behalf of Buffalo State College. Any transcript requests to schools that have been identified as “partner schools” (those preferring to receive electronic transcripts) will only have the option to be sent electronically. The electronic transcript that is produced using this service contains the identical information as the printed transcript and can be certified as unaltered by uploading the file to the company’s website that is provided during the delivery process. Additionally, electronic transcripts arrive much faster (in some cases, almost instantaneously) compared to paper transcripts. Credentials Solutions has been granted the authority to deliver all such electronic transcript requests on behalf of Buffalo State College and will respond to any inquiries regarding the transactions.
Transcripts being sent to “non-partner” schools or other institutions or individuals (such as insurance agencies, scholarships granting entities, etc.) can be sent electronically and securely as PDFs versions of student transcripts as well.
Students can ask that paper transcripts are produced and mailed on their behalf. These documents will go out with the U.S. Postal Service as First Class mail.
Priority Printed Delivery is also available:
Domestic Federal Express to main 48 states $20.00 per recipient
Domestic Federal Express to Hawaii or Alaska $23.00 per recipient
International Federal Express $43.00 per recipient
Within the online order form, students can request to pick up their transcripts at the Office of the Registrar service windows at 210 Moot Hall. Those transcripts may take between 2 and 3 days for processing. When the transcript is ready for pick up the student will receive an email.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO KNOW
Any student that knows their Banner ID and PIN, can access the self-service portion of Banner and print an unofficial copy of their transcripts. This type of transcript is an informal listing of your academic history which can be used as another tool in your academic planning. There is no fee for viewing your unofficial transcript nor printing it out on your own.
To print your unofficial transcript, follow these steps:
• Transcript will show institution credit, transcript totals and courses in progress.
• Unofficial transcripts will not be available through student self-service during faculty grading dates at the end of each semester.
Unofficial transcripts are not available if you do not have access to the Banner SSB portal. Please order an official transcript as it contains the same information.
