How to Order a Transcript

Official Transcripts

The Office of the Registrar accepts online transcript requests through a secured site. Students, alumni, and ex-students may complete the transcript request form 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Transcript request payment is done using PayPal. 

This service:

  • Eliminates the need to come to CBS to place your transcript order.
  • Eliminates the delay created by submitting requests by mail.
  • Gives you the ability to use your credit card for payment.
  • Allows you to submit your request any time day or night.

Note: Online ordering accommodates three types of requests:

  1. Regular Service: transcript(s) will be mailed as requested within approximately 3 business days after processing clearance.
  2. Pick-Up Service: transcript(s) are available for student, alumni, or ex-students to pick-up their transcript within 3 business days (Monday - Thursday ONLY) after processing clearance.
  3. Same Day Mail or Pick-Up: Same day processing to be mailed or pick-up after 1:00 p.m. after processing clearance.

Transcript Policies

Student records, including the academic transcript, are protected by the FERPA privacy act. Only the student may request a copy of his or her academic record. Family or friends are not permitted access to student records without the written consent of the student.

Only College of Biblical Studies transcripts may be requested or released.  Transcripts and documents from other institutions are the property of the College of Biblical Studies Houston and, as such, are under the control of the Office of the Registrar. Under federal policy, a student has the right to view the documents in his or her file; the College is not required to provide (or allow the making of) copies of these documents. Transcripts submitted to the College of Biblical Studies Houston for admission or credit transfer become the property of the College of Biblical Studies Houston and cannot be returned to the student or forwarded to other institutions.

Transcript orders will not be processed until all outstanding debts and/or holds are cleared.

Student must be present and picture I.D. is required to order and pick up transcripts in person. NOTE: Transcripts are held for pick-up for a maximum of 30 days. If they are not picked up within the 30 days following the printing of the transcript, they will be destroyed and will not be refunded. A new order and applicable fee will be required.

Transcripts cost $8.00 each.
