Official PLU Transcripts

Official transcripts are printed on secure paper and include the University seal and Registrar’s signature. Each transcript is sealed in an individual envelope. PLU uses the National Student Clearinghouse for online ordering. PLU DOES NOT use Parchment for transcript services: transcript orders placed through Parchment will NOT be fulfilled. Electronic Transcripts are $10 each with a $2.90-$3.40 handling fee per order. Physical copies sent via mail are $15 each with a $2.90 handling fee per order.

Please note that processing time for paper transcripts (mail orders) is 7-10 business days during holidays and peak times.  Additionally, due to significant delays with the US Postal Service we recommend electronic transcript fulfillment for all orders.

Trinity Lutheran College Official Transcripts

Pacific Lutheran University is the custodian of official transcripts for Trinity Lutheran College which closed in Spring 2016. Transcripts are the only records PLU maintains for TLC.  While PLU provides official transcripts for TLC alumni, PLU is not able to provide any interpretation of TLC transcripts.

TLC transcripts are ordered through the National Student Clearinghouse secure site. Transcripts are sent via mail and are $15 each with a $2.90 handling fee per order.

When placing an order for TLC transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse make sure to select ‘Trinity Lutheran College’ from the school list.
