Official Transcripts - Cost = $8 per copy or $10 for on-demand service.
Please note that typical turnaround time for transcripts is 3-5 business days after receipt of completed request form and payment.
We will do our best to process all requests as soon as possible, but please note that all requests are processed in the order they are received. Whether by fax, mail, or in person, all go into the same processing queue.

- Apostille Transript: EKU graduates who plan to work or further their education abroad may need to authenticate their degree(s) and transcripts. This process is referred to as an Apostille, which is the verification and legalization of a document for international use. Instructions for completing an Apostille Transcript Request are available on the Apostille Page.
If There Are HOLDS On Your Record
Students who owe the university money or property (e.g. library books) may have holds placed on their record that will prevent the release of transcripts. If a request is received and the student has such a hold then the request will be returned to the student and the student will be informed as to which office placed the hold. Only that office can release the hold and the student should contact that office. Once the hold is released the student can resubmit their transcript request.
For further information regarding transcripts, you may contact the Registrar Transcript Department at (859) 622-5045 or (859) 622-1102.
