Request Transcript

Students who have attended Cincinnati Christian University at any time can request an official transcript of their classes and degree(s) earned. This request is processed by the Office of the Registrar. Requests are submitted exclusively online, and most transcripts will be sent digitally as well. We use a service called Parchment to process requests.

Due to the closing of CCU and a limited transition staff overseeing student and financial records, please allow at least 7 business days for processing and delivery.

All requests will need to be made directly with parchment. Please use the link below to access your transcripts.

Please CLICK HERE to register within the Parchment system.

My school or organization does not appear when I search for it. 
This is a common occurrence; simply click “ENTER YOUR OWN” next to the text “Not finding your destination?”

Can you send my unofficial transcript for free?
We do not send unofficial transcripts.

To Access a Copy of Your Unofficial Transcript:

  1. Go to MyCCU.
  2.  Log in with your CCU username and password. If you have forgotten your password, we cannot help you retrieve an unofficial transcript.
  3. Click on the “Students” tab.
  4. Click on the “My Grades” link in the left sidebar.
  5. Click “View Unofficial Transcript”
  6. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Custom Transcript.” You will have a PDF document that can be saved, emailed, printed, etc.

I have to send another document with my transcript. Can you include that?
Yes. During the request process you will be prompted to attach a digital file to be included in the email or envelope with your official transcript. This does not cost extra.

Is an electronic transcript “official”?
Yes. Both the electronic and paper documents are official copies. Electronic documents are certified PDFs that contain a digital signature and other security features.

NOTE: an official transcript sent to yourself becomes unofficial when you share it with an agency or school requiring an official document. CCU should send the transcript directly to the agency or school to maintain official nature of the document they require.

Can I send a transcript to myself?
Yes. If you are a recent student, you can access your unofficial transcript for free by logging on to MyCCU (see instructions above). If you want to send an official transcript to yourself, simply click “Send to Yourself” on the page titled “Where would you like your document(s) sent?”

How do I cancel an order that I submitted? Will I get a refund?
To cancel an order, please contact the Registrar’s Office: 513.244.8170 or [email protected] Once an order is cancelled it cannot be undone. You will need to submit a new request.
You are not charged until the transcript has actually been sent, so rather than getting a refund for a cancelled order, you will simply not be charged.

I received an email that my order is on hold. How do I clear the hold so that my transcript can be sent?
Contact Enrollment Services ([email protected] or 513.244.8130) and make arrangements to clear the hold that is indicated. When you have received confirmation that the hold is cleared, send documentation to [email protected] (forward an email from the applicable department verifying that the hold can be cleared). Your transcript will not be sent unless you notify the Registrar’s Office that you have resolved the problem.
Transcript requests on hold due to a Financial problem will remain active for 30 days. If the hold is not cleared within 30 days, the Parchment request will be deleted and you will not be charged
