How to request a paper transcript
Log in to Mosaic with your MacID and password. Navigate to your Student Center.
If you have never accessed Mosaic, or if you’ve forgotten your MacID, you will need to activate your credentials.
Before you begin the activation process, you will need your student ID number, 14-digit barcode number and date of birth. If you do not have your student ID number and/or barcode number, please complete this request form.
We will provide you with your barcode and student ID number within five business days and you can activate your MacID, here.
Once you have access to Mosaic, please continue to follow the steps to request a transcript.
In your Student Center, select the other academic drop down menu and select “Transcript: Request Official”. Use the “next” arrow.
