COVID-19: Essential Information
How do I order a transcript for my AMCAS or LSAC application?

The easiest, most efficient method is to order an electronic transcript. Our agent, Parchment, has a special in-network arrangement with AMCAS & LSAC. When you choose AMCAS or LSAC from the drop-down menu, you will have additional fields into which you can plug your special ID #s. Those will then automatically transfer to AMCAS or LSAC along with the transcript. There is no need to upload a separate form. 

To understand this process better contact Parchment.

What’s the difference between an OFFICIAL and an UNOFFICIAL transcript?
  • An OFFICIAL [paper] transcript is printed on special, watermarked paper. Official paper transcripts are sent in a sealed, signature-stamped envelope.
  • An electronic transcript is considered OFFICIAL if the intended party is the direct email recipient. If emailed to the requestor, then forwarded, it is then considered UNOFFICIAL.
  • An electronic transcript which is printed then re-scanned in an email is considered UNOFFICIAL.
What are the options for requesting a transcript?
  • Please see our Transcript webpage for paper-copy or electronic options.
  • We accept paper form transcript requests via USPS or intercampus mail with payment in cash or with a check.
  • Both paper and electronic transcripts can be ordered using a credit card using Parchment the online transcript ordering system. Only paper transcripts are available to order on line for pre-1987 alumni.
  • We do not accept nor provide FAXed or emailed requests.
What ID do I use?
  • Your 8-digit student ID# [beginning with ‘00’ or ‘000’] is the best for our locating your records.
  • The next-best # is your SSN.
  • We also can locate your record with a complete name [including the full middle].
What if I only want part of my transcript sent?

Middlebury does not issue partial transcripts.  Each transcript includes the student’s complete record at Middlebury College and the Middlebury Schools.


What are the fees?
  • Middlebury assesses a $5 fee per transcript request. We accept cash, check, or money order for mailed-in paper requests.
  • Parchment adds on a $3 non-refundable surcharge to all orders placed online, payable using a credit card only.
How do I know which type of transcript to order?
  • Middlebury Undergraduate, Language Schools, Bread Loaf, Schools Abroad, School of the Environment. Choose if you've attended any one or combination thereof.
  • Middlebury with Monterey credits: Choose only if in addition to other Middlebury College records. If you ONLY attended MIIS, request directly from MIIS:
What about including extra documents/forms with the transcript?
  • Include any extra forms [with signature, if necessary] with your paper request form.
  • Upload any documents with the online Parchment process. They will be printed at our office and included with the paper requests, or emailed with the electronic requests.

  • Cancelling an online order-in-progress before submitting is easy on the Parchment website.
  • For mailed-in requests, simply contact the Registrar’s Office to see if the order has already been processed (
I received an email indicating I have a HOLD on my account and cannot get my transcript. How do I clear that?
How long does it take to receive a transcript?
  • Most orders are filled within 1-3 business days. During high volume times, requests can take up to the full 3 business days to process.
  • We cannot predict performance of the USPS system. At this time paper transcripts leave the office once per week. Please plan accordingly for delivery time.
  • Alternately you may order an electronic transcript which can be delivered to the recipient as quickly as by close of business the same day, [conditions apply].
Is there a way to track my order?
  • For orders placed online you should receive updates from our agent on the status of your order or you may check your own orders on their site.
  • We do not track paper copies sent via first class mail and cannot comment on USPS’s ETA.
  • We can track if a recipient has accessed an electronic transcript. Please contact
