Official Transcript Requests

Great News! Request an official SBCC Transcript and view it within minutes. SBCC now provides students with fast delivery time; a secure network; payment options including credit cards; and easy tracking of delivery and receipt of the transcript.

Your transcript is never delivered by email – instead your recipient is notified by email that your transcript is available for download at the specific “one-time” URL identified in the email. To insure prompt delivery and receipt, make sure the recipient knows that you are sending them an electronic transcript and will accept the electronic version.

If the recipient will not accept an electronic transcript, you will have the option of requesting a paper copy delivered to a US Postal Service address. Fortunately for you, we have done a lot of the research for you and if your college or university accepts electronic transcript we will automatically default to this sending option for you.

OPTION 1: Current students and those with active Pipeline accounts

Log in to Pipeline to submit your request.
