Transcripts & Diplomas


Requesting a transcript
In order to protect students' privacy rights, we must receive a signed, written request before releasing transcripts. 
You can request transcripts using the Transcript Request Form (PDF) or by mailing, faxing, or scanning and e-mailing your written request with the following information:
  • Full name, the name under which you attended (and any name changes since)
  • Clarion ID or social security number
  • Dates of attendance or graduation
  • Daytime telephone number
  • Current address
  • Complete mailing address where transcript should be sent (specify department or person to whom transcript should be addressed)
  • Your signature (Requests received without a signature will not be processed.)

No fee is required with your request; therefore there is a limit of three transcripts per request and only one request per day. Multiple daily requests will not be honored or held.

Transcripts can be requested by:

  • Personally delivering your request to the Office of the Registrar at 148 Becht Hall. In most cases, transcripts can be taken with you.
  • Mailing your request to:    
                                                          Clarion University of PA
                                                          Registrar's Office
                                                         840 Wood Street                 
                                                        Clarion, PA 16214 
  • Faxing your request to +1 814 393 2039 (No cover sheet is necessary)       
  • E-mailing your request to as an attachment.                                            
Transcript delivery methods include:
  • Regular mail
  • Pick-up in person (Photo ID is required)
  • Electronic Delivery (This service is only available for students who attended fall 1985 to present.)

Transcripts cannot be faxed. If the transcript is being sent directly to you to forward to a third party, please indicate if you would like it sent in a sealed envelope.

Electronic transcript delivery is a delivery method Clarion is offering via eSCRIP-SAFE. Transcripts to institutions that are participating in the eSCRIP-SAFE network will be delivered electronically. To see a list of institutions that we can send electronic transcripts to, view the eSCRIP-SAFE network membership list. If the institution is not on this list or if you would like your transcript sent to an individual, please provide the name and email address of the recipient and we will deliver it electronically through eSCRIP-SAFE's out of network service. 

Also, student transcripts from previously-attended institutions that were provided for admissions consideration become the property of Clarion University and are considered official only at the time of receipt. Clarion University does not provide copies of transcripts from other institutions that are part of a student's education record. In order to obtain accurate up-to-date information and assure that no protocol of the issuing institution is circumvented, a student must contact the originating school for a copy of that transcript.

Note: Transcripts cannot be released for anyone with holds on their account for unpaid fees, materials not returned or some other obligation to the university until the hold has been properly resolved with the appropriate department and the office of the registrar has been notified.


Diplomas will be confirmed after all grades are posted and, if applicable to your program, comprehensive/oral exams results are received and final copies of these are submitted. All graduation requirements must be completed and any course with a grade of Incomplete or In Progress must be changed to a letter grade before your degree can be granted. Also, all transfer credits must be received and recorded.  If you did not attend the commencement ceremony to receive a diploma cover, you may request a diploma cover in writing to the Registrar's Office 840 Wood St, Clarion, PA 16214 and include $3.00 for postage made payable to Clarion University.

All holds and outstanding balances on ones account must be cleared from your record before your diploma can be released. Holds include any financial obligations to the University, including fees, parking tickets, Hreachmack loans, keys returned to Public Safety and the completion of the Perkins Exit interview.

Diplomas bear the name of your degree (ex. Bachelor of Science) and last date of the term (not the day of the commencement ceremony). Your academic transcript will include all majors, minors, and academic honors.

Diplomas will be mailed to students who have been cleared for graduation approximately 8 weeks after grades are processed.  You will receive a confirmation email to your Clarion Eagle Mail once your diploma is shipped.
