  • When do you want this sent?

    Send Now

    • What is it? Choosing "Send Now" means that your transcript will be sent as soon as possible, reflecting your current academic record at the time of the request.
    • Who should use it? This option is ideal for learners who need to provide their current standing and do not need to include recent semester grades or degrees in progress. 

    Hold for Grades 

    • What is it? If you select "Hold for Grades," your transcript will be sent only after your most recent semester grades have been posted to your academic record. 
    • Who should use it? This option is perfect for learners who have completed a semester and want to ensure their latest grades are included in the transcript. This is commonly used for tuition reimbursement for employers. 

    Hold for Degree 

    • What is it? When you choose "Hold for Degree," your transcript will not be sent until your degree has officially been conferred and noted in your academic record. 
    • Who should use it? This option is suitable for soon-to-be or recent graduates who need their transcript to reflect their awarded degree. It's commonly used for job and licensure applications, professional certifications, or higher education applications that require proof of graduation. 
  • What is an attachment in transcript orders?

    An attachment is an additional document that can be sent with your transcript. This feature is useful for including supplementary paperwork that may be required by the recipient, such as affidavits of graduation or specific forms for professional licensure applications. The most common uses include: 

    • Affidavits of Graduation: Often required for board examinations or licensure applications to verify that you have met all graduation requirements. 
    • Forms Required by Professional Boards: Specific forms that need to accompany your transcript for applications to professional bodies or for licensure purposes. 
    • Custom Cover Letters: If the recipient requires a cover letter or specific instructions, you can attach this document to personalize your transcript submission. 
  • Can I still request transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse?

    Nightingale College has partnered with Parchment and will no longer be accepting or processing transcript requests through the National Student Clearinghouse. This allows for a more intuitive and quality experience for our learners and processing times. Through Parchment we are able to process most requests within the same hour compared to the National Student Clearinghouse where requests were processed manually once per week.
