Submit a Transcript to TCC
Prior to registration, your official transcripts should be sent to any Admissions/Enrollment Service Office directly from the high school or college you previously attended. Also, Compass or ACT should be taken before you enroll. Students meeting the criteria can enroll at TCC while in high school, as a high school concurrent student.
What is an official transcript?
- An official transcript is a college, university or high school's certified and comprehensive statement of the student’s academic record.
- Official transcripts from each institution attended will be required.
What does TCC look for in an official transcript?
- Official college transcripts are typically printed on security sensitive paper and contain the university seal and signature of the University Registrar.
- High school transcripts are submitted with the final graduation date, final GPA, school seal and signed by the designated school official. (Not every school district will have a seal.)
- Transcript is submitted in a sealed envelope from the receiving institution.
In Person or Mail Transcript Delivery
Effective October 1, 2012: Any transcript submitted to the TCC for admission purposes must be received in an envelope that has been sealed by the high school or college to be considered official.
- To be considered official, transcripts that are submitted to an Academic Division or Student Services Office within the college must have a signature and date from the employee who opened the documents.
- Homeschool transcripts, test scores and foreign transcripts do not need to be submitted in sealed envelopes.
- For any possible exceptions, please see the Director of Enrollment Services on any campus.
Electronic Transcript Acceptance Policy
Many high schools, colleges and universities now have the ability to send transcripts electronically. Tulsa Community College is currently partnered with XAP for students to submit official electronic high school transcripts. Tulsa Community College will accept electronic college transcripts as official if the following criteria are met:
- The transcript is certified as official from the college or university using a third party agency for the certification process. (i.e. Docufide, Escrip, Avow, etc).
- The transcript must be a PDF certified document that has no indication of tampering.
- A college official must receive the transcript from an approved e-transcript service sent directly to Metro.firstname.lastname@example.org or another TCC employee e-mail address.
- TCC will not accept electronically forwarded transcripts from other colleges or from the student.
- TCC has the right to refuse electronic transcripts or request additional information if there is a question about the authenticity of an electronic document.
- Processing of electronic transcripts can take up to five business days to be marked as received.
NOTE: Electronic Transcripts that are not sent directly from the college or university to TCC will be considered unofficial.
