Former Students & Alumni
Alumni and current students may request official electronic and paper transcripts through the Parchment St. Thomas Online Storefront. If you experience any issues with the Parchment website (i.e. login issues), please visit Parchment Support to report your issue or chat with an agent.
The University of St. Thomas continues to offer official paper transcripts at no cost through the Transcript Request Form. The university will cover standard mailing postage if the paper transcript must be mailed.
Official transcripts (if paper) are printed on security paper and bear the university seal (not raised). When official transcripts are provided directly to the student, they are sealed in a university envelope and the transcript is stamped "Issued directly to the student".
Transcripts from the University of St. Thomas may be requested or released. Transcripts and documents issued to the University of St. Thomas for admission or credit transfer become the property of the University of St. Thomas and cannot be returned to the student or forwarded to other institutions. Federal policy permits a student the right to view the documents in his or her academic records. However, the University does not provide (or allow the making of) copies of these documents.
Please note: The Office of Student Data and Registrar does not hold transcript requests for future activity (such as the posting of grades or awarding of degrees). Please submit your transcript request after your grades are posted or degree has been awarded.
We are able to generate an official letter from the Univeristy confirming your education at St Thomas.
