Order a TESU Transcript

Students and graduates from July 2008 to present:

Electronic PDF transcripts are released in real time (within an hour or so from the completed request) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including weekends and holidays, for TESU students and graduates from July 1, 2008 to present who have no financial or academic holds on their account. Mailed transcripts are processed Monday – Saturday for TESU students and graduates from July 1, 2008 to present who have no financial or academic holds on their account.

Students and graduates prior to July 2008:

Please submit your request using this system. When you submit it, you will be notified that there is a hold on your account. The hold is an indicator that it is being routed to us at TESU to produce and release your transcript instead of it being sent immediately. We encourage you to still select the electronic PDF transcript as we can release it very quickly in that case. Select an Electronic transcript when you order if you want your transcript sent electronically. Mailed transcripts are processed by the University during work hours. Please allow 5 business days for processing, in addition to delivery time. Requests for mailed transcripts are not processed when the University is closed, this also applies to express shipping requests.

Order a TESU Transcript
  1. Thomas Edison State University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide 24/7 online transcript ordering to our students and alumni. The cost per transcript is $18 plus applicable shipping and handling for mailed and express shipping requests.
    The National Student Clearinghouse will collect the Thomas Edison State University transcript fee, as well as a small processing fee after the transcript has been released by the University.
  2. Transcript order updates are automatically emailed or texted to you as your request moves along the process of being fulfilled or if there are any issues that need to be resolved. You can also track your order online for added convenience.
  3. Transcripts can be sent to participating colleges and universities via Electronic PDF with participating schools. Be sure to check out this service as it is the easiest way to be sure your school has received the transcript.
  4. If you order an electronic PDF version of your transcript sent to yourself, it will be an UNOFFICIAL transcript. In order for your electronic transcript to be official, you must have it sent to another institution directly. If you need an official copy sent to yourself, it must be sent by mail.
  5. Requests for mailed transcripts are usually processed within 5 business days of you submitting your request to the National Student Clearinghouse.
  6. Although a student is certified for graduation before the actual graduation date, the degree will not appear as conferred on the Thomas Edison State University transcript until the next business day after graduation.

If you have any questions about how to order a transcript, please contact Enrolled Services at (609) 777-5680, or

Do you want to pick up your transcript in person?

We are no longer providing printed transcripts for pick up in person or on-demand and we are no longer accepting transcript request forms in person. Mailed transcripts are now issued directly from the National Student Clearinghouse.

If you are an investigator and need a transcript for a job applicant to your company or organization, please ask the applicant to request their own TESU transcript at to be sent to you. Please encourage them to have it sent to you electronically, as that is the fastest method to receive a transcript.

If you are a student or graduate of TESU, please request your transcript online via the National Student Clearinghouse at
