A transcript is a copy of a student's permanent record.
A BCC transcript is a chronological listing of all the credit courses attempted by a student at Berkshire Community College including the grade received, credits earned and grade point average.
Students that want to obtain a copy of their transcript for informational, advising, transfer or employment purposes have several options depending on the purpose.
Students that need to send an official transcript to another college, university, organization or prospective employer can request one from the Registrar's Office. The request must be in writing and be signed by the student. The request can be made by filling out a Transcript Request Form and submitting it to the Registrar's Office or by sending a letter or fax. The request must be accompanied by payment of $3 per transcript. Students making the request in-person may pay using cash, personal check (made out to Berkshire Community College), or by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express). Mailed requests should include a check or authorization to charge to a credit card (charge card number and expiration date). Faxed requests should include credit card authorization. Requests are generally processed within 2 business days of receipt if the student has no outstanding financial obligations to the College.
Official transcripts are generally sent directly from BCC to the receiving institution. Students can request that an official copy be sent to them. These transcripts will be sent in a sealed envelope and the transcript will be stamped "Official Transcript Issued to Student". It is the student's responsibility to determine if the receiving institution will accept an official transcript from the student.
The official transcript is printed on secure paper stock and bears the college seal and the signature of the Registrar.
For less formal purposes, an unofficial transcript might be sufficient. The unofficial transcript contains the same information as the official transcript but is not printed on security paper and does not carry the college seal or Registrar's signature. The process for requesting a copy is the same as above except there is no charge for an unofficial transcript. Requests made in person at the Registrar's Office can be processed immediately.
Students enrolled at BCC since the Spring 2007 semester can use the "Transcript" menu item of their WebAdvisor account to view or print a list of their attempted coursework, grades received and cumulative grade point average.
