What are Transcripts?

A record of your school career. You can find these on your transcript:

  • The degree you earned and the date you earned it
  • The courses you took and the grade you earned
  • Your GPA

Unofficial vs. Official


These are for your records to reference only – you can get a copy of these on myBay if you are a current student up to a year after the last semester you attended. After that you will need to order an official copy

Reasons you might need an unofficial transcript:
  • Reference your GPA or earned credits
  • Meet with your next college’s advisor

These must come from Bay College or Parchment to the person/place requesting an official transcript.

Reasons you might need an official transcript:
  • Admission/Transfer at your next college
  • Proof of credentials for a certification
  • At employer request
  • Applications into programs
A couple things to note about ordering an official transcript:
  • If you have a financial obligation to Bay College, you will need to get that resolved before your transcript can be sent.
  • There is a $5.00 fee for transcripts
  • All transcripts sent through Parchment are official and need to be sent directly to the person/place requesting the transcript.
  • If you’re unsure of your attendance dates approximate dates are acceptable
  • Please verify the recipient information you provide is correct before finalizing order.
  • Bay College will not provide refunds for transcripts that are sent to the wrong recipient email address or for downloads that have expired.
Parchment account information:
  • If this is your first time ordering you will need to create an account.
  • Use your personal email address to create this account.
  • You will also need to provide the following:
    • Name
    • Address
    • Identifying information (date of birth, last 4 digits of your SSN)
