How to Request a Transcript

All matriculated students enrolled at Trinity in spring 2001 or later and who have kept an active Trinity account may view unofficial copies of their own transcripts online, using TC Online, Trinity's Web-based student record system.  Unfortunately, students who have not maintained an active TCOnline account cannot have it reactivated. 

Occasionally, students require printed official transcripts for prospective employers, graduate school applications, etc.  In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (also known as the Buckley Amendment), you must request all transcripts in writing. You can: 

  • Use the transcript request form located at the Office of the Registrar (located in Trinity Commons room 139), 
  • Write a letter
  • Print our online request form

If you write a letter, please include the following: 

  • Your name as it was when you attended Trinity
  • Your signature
  • Your Trinity student ID number or social security number
  • Your class year or dates of attendance
  • The address where you would like your transcript sent

There are several ways to submit your request:  

fax your request to (860) 297-5179.

mail in your request to the address below: 

Office of the Registrar
Trinity College
300 Summit Street
Hartford, CT 06106

or scan your request and e-mail it to registrar.office@trincoll.edu   If a request is sent by e-mail, an attachment of a physically signed document requesting the transcript must be included--electronic signatures are not acceptable. 

All requests should include some form of contact information (phone number, e-mail address, etc.) in case there are any questions about your request.   

You may request either official or unofficial transcripts. There is no fee for either type of transcript.  Both types of transcripts can be requested by using this form.

  • Unofficial transcripts are printed on plain white paper, they do not have the Trinity embossed seal or the Registrar's signature, and they are stamped "Unofficial."  After you receive your transcript, keep a copy so that you can photocopy it on an as-needed basis.
  • Official transcripts are printed on special transcript paper, which includes the Registrar's signature and Trinity's seal. On the back of the transcript is a key explaining how to interpret the transcript. The transcript is issued in a sealed envelope with the Registrar's signature across the flap.  Official transcripts may be sent directly to students, but please note that some places will not accept a transcript as official if the envelope has been opened.

If you need an electronic copy of your transcript, you may request an unofficial copy of your transcript and have it sent to you as a PDF attachment via e-mail.  Only unofficial transcripts are available in this manner.  If you wish to have your unofficial transcript sent to you electronically, please indicate the appropriate e-mail address when you submit your request.

Please allow up to 10 business days for us to process your transcript request.  The Registrar's Office will make every effort to accommodate urgent requests, however it is suggested that you take in account the processing and mailing time when making a request.

If you have any questions, you may call the Records Assistant at 860-297-2122.
