office of the registrar
the registrar's office provides a variety of services: providing student and alumni transcripts, answering questions about courses and class schedules, processing forms for class schedules and changes to student schedules, providing classroom reservations for on-campus events, handling forms for changing academic programs, and more.
students and alums can request official and/or unofficial transcripts. the transcript request form can be used to request either type of transcript and must be submitted to the registrar of mercyhurst university. unofficial transcripts do not carry the seal of the university and are free. official transcripts bear the mercyhurst university seal and the signature of the registrar. a fee of $10 is charged for the issuance of each official transcript. an official transcript is ordinarily mailed directly to other institutions and agencies. due to the embossed seal official transcripts cannot be faxed. the registrar's office can only email the student copy of the transcripts. whenever an unofficial transcript is released to a student, it bears the stamped message "issued directly to student" or "student copy."
*** please allow 7-10 business days for processing after the request is received. incomplete or illegible forms may delay processing.***
