Requesting your transcript

  • Northwestern College has appointed Credentials Inc. as the designated agent for processing and sending official electronic transcripts on behalf of the college. The PDF transcript that is produced using this service contains the identical information as the printed transcript and can be certified as unaltered by uploading the file to the company's website that is provided during the delivery process. Credentials Inc. has been granted the authority to deliver all such electronic transcripts on behalf of Northwestern College and respond to any inquiries regarding the transactions.

  • The registrar’s office will no longer accept transcript requests that are mailed, faxed, emailed or called in to the registrar’s office.
