Requesting a Transcript

To request a copy of your Lake Superior State University academic transcript, please print the Transcript Request Form. You will need to complete and sign this form, then mail, fax, or scan and email the form to the Registrar’s Office. Our contact information is on the form. We will only accept email requests where the completed and signed Transcript Request Form is attached. All transcript requests must contain the student’s signature. Electronically signed Transcript Request forms are not accepted.

Transcript requests are normally processed within three to five business days.

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are printed on security transcript paper and contain the University seal and the signature of the Registrar. Official transcripts mailed to the student or picked up by the student will be stamped “Issued to Student”. Many institutions will only consider a transcript official if it is mailed directly from the issuing institution to their institution.

Unofficial Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts are printed on white paper and contain the statement “Unofficial Transcript”. Unofficial transcripts can be requested by completing our Transcript Request Form, or can be picked up at the Registrar’s Office, located in the Fletcher Center for Student Services. Students picking up an unofficial transcript will need to present picture identification. The transcript will be prepared immediately, free of charge.

Students may also obtain a copy of their unofficial transcript online by logging into My.LSSU, then entering Anchor Access. Transcripts from Fall Semester 1992 to present are available. Students need to know their username and password. If you don’t know your username and/or password, please print the Request for Password Reset.

Faxed Transcripts

Only Unofficial transcripts can be faxed. The fax number must be provided on the Transcript Request Form.

Cost

The very first transcript requested is free. After, each transcript (official, faxed unofficial, or mailed unofficial) costs $5.00. If more than 5 transcripts are ordered at one time, the charge is reduced to $1.00 per transcript for each transcript requested above the 5 original. As an example, 7 transcripts = $27.00 ($25.00 for the first 5, then $1.00 each for the additional 2). Transcripts will not be issued until payment is received.

Holds

Transcript requests for students with outstanding financial obligations to the University will not be processed until the obligation has been met.

Anchor Club Members

Anchor Club members of the Alumni Association receive certificates for up to three free transcripts a year. The certificate must be completed and submitted for processing for the transcript to be considered free. For more information see LSSU Alumni Association
