How to Request an Official Transcript (Current Students and Recent Alumni)

Step 1: Login with your MacID and password on Mosaic. Navigate to your Student Center

Step 2: In your Student Centre, select the other academic drop down menu and select Transcript: Request Official. Click the next arrow.

Step 3: Scroll down and select your processing options.

Quantity: You can order a maximum of five transcripts

Rush: Check this box if you would like rush service. It will be processed for pickup or mail the next business day by noon. A $15 fee applies.

Sealed Envelope: Check this box if you require the transcript to be in a sealed envelope. We suggest that you check this box if you are sending transcripts to professional organizations or other universities and colleges.

Also Fax: Check this box if you would like your transcript faxed. Additional fees apply.

Transcript Attachment/Cover Page: If you have a cover sheet that you need included with your transcript then please check this box. Ensure that your cover sheet has been dropped off  in Gilmour Hall, Room 108 or uploaded to our secure MacDrive.

Step 4: Enter the address you would like to send it to.

If you would like it send to yourself and your address is up to date in Mosaic then you can check off Send To My Address and your address will populate.

If you need to send it to a different address, enter the person’s name or the name of the organization in the Send To field and then click on Edit Address. Fill out the exact address you would like it sent to. After you’re done, click okay.

Please verify that the Send To and Address fields are correct. Incomplete or wrong addresses will result in delayed processing/delivery.

Step 5: You’re all done, select submit! If you have selected an option that requires payment, then you will be taken to Moneris to pay for your request.

If you have requested a transcript for pick up then keep an eye on your McMaster email. You will receive notification once it’s ready.
