Official – National Student Clearinghouse
National Student Clearinghouse processes official transcripts for Piedmont University. Current students, former students, and alumnae will have 24/7 access to transcript ordering, electronic exchange with other participating colleges, automatic email confirmations, online order tracking and optional text message alerts.
Access Piedmont University Clearinghouse Official Transcript site. The online service will walk you through placing your order, including all delivery options. You may place orders to multiple recipients in a single session. On the Transcript Ordering Welcome page, step-by-step help is available at the bottom of the page “Transcript Ordering Help.”
Electronic PDF – This is the preferred delivery method as orders are typically processed and delivered within 24 hours or less, assuming there are no holds on the account and the consent form has been signed. Electronic transcripts expire 30 days after the order is processed.
Note: Please verify with the receiving organization before requesting an electronic transcript. For requests being sent to institutions that do not accept National Student Clearinghouse electronic transcripts, the student will need to request a hardcopy to be sent via mail. Failure of the student to verify the acceptance of the National Student Clearinghouse electronic transcript will result in additional requests and payment by the student.
