You can request a transcript through Bannerweb by following the instructions below. Please note, if this is for a state license, typically they will require the transcript to include the degree conferral date. Therefore, please be sure to indicate you need the transcript to be released only after the conferral date has been added. Though the Registrar's office does prioritize our students, this can take a few weeks post-graduation.

All licensing pages requiring verification and a dean’s signature should be submitted to the Student Affairs Coordinator. The forms must be originals and can be directly dropped off or mailed to the RSO physical address. Graduation verification will be completed and given to the Dean for signature. This process is dependent on the Dean's schedule so please plan ahead and consider all license application deadlines when coordinating this process.

Once completed Student Affairs will contact the graduate or alumni to inform the document is ready for pick up. For those coordinating this process remotely, we can mail the original document back to the graduate or alumni. Please provide us with the physical address.

  • For Texas State Board – must provide the original document, page 6
  • If submitting remotely/externship site, mail form directly to Student Affairs and provide an address where to mail it back
