Request an Official Transcript

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts cost $9.00 each. The easiest way to request a transcript is by ordering it directly through the Parchment system. Official transcripts may also be ordered in person, by mail, fax, or online. We cannot accept transcript request forms by email.

If you are not able to use the online Parchment system or need to submit payment by cash or check rather than credit card, please contact the Registrar’s Office at 605-256-5144 or

Transcript Request Details 

Official transcripts include all of your courses taken at any South Dakota Board of Regents institution, both undergraduate and graduate, as well as degrees awarded and honors received. Courses transferred from other institutions may appear on your transcript, depending on time frame and level.

Please note that the six South Dakota state universities have a combined database and a request sent to one university will generate a transcript from each South Dakota state university you attended. Please indicate if you have course work prior to 1990.

We will not be able to issue an official transcript if you have a hold on your record due to unsettled obligations with the university. If you think you might have an unresolved hold from any office at DSU you can call the Office of the Registrar at (605) 256-5144 so that we can check your account. If you have a hold, you will need to contact the appropriate office to resolve your hold before submitting your transcript request.

Transcripts requested online require payment via credit/debit card. In person requests must be paid at the time of the request in the form of cash, check, or credit/debit card.
