Only current students (or very recent graduates who can still log into Engage) can immediately print out unofficial transcripts, but all alumni and former students can fill out the online form that everyone uses to order an Official transcript. There is a small basic fee for transcripts for alumni and former students, even if you can only get an unofficial transcript.

The National Student Clearinghouse processes Berkeley transcript requests, so you can go directly to this website and choose Berkeley College from the dropdown box to see the instructions and get to the online order form:
https://tsorder.studentclearinghouse.org/school/select

Students with outstanding financial obligations cannot get official transcripts, but may request Unofficial transcripts from the Clearinghouse website while making arrangements with Student Accounts to resolve their balance. In case you need an unofficial transcript because you have a balance, put Unofficial Transcript in the "Special Instructions" box under the Delivery Options field of the form.

For students who attended Dover Business College before it merged with Berkeley College in July 2013, you must indicate that you are requesting a Dover Business College transcript in the "Special Instructions" box under the Delivery Options field. If you still owe either college money, put Unofficial transcript for Dover Business College in that box.

But Official transcripts will be automatically issued as long as the student does not owe money to the college. Official transcripts mailed directly to students will be certified & signed by the Registrar with a college seal, and stamped "Issued to Student in Sealed Envelope". If you receive an Official one, we recommend using a photocopy when you only need an Unofficial transcript, and saving the legal one for when you need an Official transcript (such as to enroll in school, or when an employer requires proof of a college degree).

Note: If you are a current student, see How can I print my unofficial transcript? for instructions.
