You may request a copy of your academic record at any time. Transcripts can be delivered to you or to a third-party, such as an employer or to another university. You have two delivery options available. You may: request your transcript to be sent electronically; OR request your transcript to be printed on security paper, sealed in a secure envelope, and mailed to the third party.

Need your transcript sent with an attachment?
Our office does send transcripts to Central Application Services (such as: NursingCAS, AMCAS, CASPA, LSAC etc.) on your behalf. You may mail, fax, or scan/email a hard copy transcript request form and your matching form to our office (email@example.com).
AMCAS and LSAC do allow electronic submissions as well. If you would like your transcript to be sent electronically to these services, please fill out the electronic transcript request form and mail, fax, or scan/email the request form along with your matching form to our office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Note: If you are currently enrolled, please do not use myLSU for your hard-copy transcript request to a Central Application Service. This will cause your transcript to be mailed without the attachment. Also, if you are sending your transcript electronically to LSAC or AMCAS through myLSU, please scan/email your matching form ASAP to email@example.com informing our office that you have already requested for it to be sent electronically through your myLSU.
