Transcript Request

You may request a copy of your academic record at any time. Your record may be released directly to you or to third parties with your appropriate written authorization.

You may request that your transcript be released 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.

The Office of Bursar Operations places holds on the release of transcripts of students who are in debt to the University. Please be aware that if there is a “Bursar Hold” on your transcript, and you choose to pay what you owe the University via myLSU using a credit card, it may take up to 48 hours to clear your account and to lift the hold. For questions, you may contact the Office of Bursar Operations at 225-578-3357.

This office is only able to issue transcripts for courses taken through the following campuses: LSU A&M - Baton Rouge, LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, and the LSU Law Center. 

PLEASE NOTE: LSU uses USPS as our preferred carrier. Once a document is mailed, there is no way of tracking the transcript. We do not maintain responsibility for the documents once in the possession of USPS.
