Request an Official Transcript

An official transcript is a copy of the student’s academic record, which includes all courses taken and grades received for a specific program at ACU. Official transcripts are issued by the Office of the Registrar with the official seal of the university.


According to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), the Office of the Registrar must have written permission to release a student’s transcripts; therefore, no transcripts will be released unless requested through this webpage. Students must fill out a new transcript request for each set of transcripts sent.

  • When completing the request, please verify that the Recipient’s address and/or email was entered correctly. The Office of the Registrar cannot be responsible for delivery errors due to inaccurate information reported on the form.
  • When completing the form, please choose the desired Delivery Method:
    • Standard mail
    • Encrypted email to an institution of student’s choice 
    • Hold to be picked up by the student
    • Some institutions do not accept emailed or hand delivered official transcripts. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the institution will accept transcripts in the requested format as official before requesting them.
    • Official transcripts cannot be emailed directly to the student.
  • There is a nominal fee for sending official transcripts. Consult ACU’s Schedule of Tuition and Fees for the amount. Students will be asked to enter their credit card information on the transcript request form. If a student prefers to pay by another method, he or she should contact the Office of the Registrar to request a paper form and further instructions. 
  • Current students: Please wait at least 2 weeks after the term ends to request transcripts to allow time for grades to be finalized and for degrees to be conferred.  Please consult the Academic Calendar for specific term dates.
  • Arizona Christian University is currently the custodian of the student records for Judson Baptist College (1956–1985) and Arizona College of the Bible (1971–1998). If you are a student of Judson Baptist or Arizona College of the Bible, please note this in the Additional Instructions section of the electronic request form.
  • If you have a form that needs to be sent with the transcript, please make a note in the Additional Instructions section, and then email a scanned copy of the form to [email protected].
  • Institutions requesting transcripts on behalf of a student may send the official request to [email protected]. Please attach the student authorization showing the student’s signature.
  • Transcript requests are processed within 3 to 7 business days of receipt of the request.
