How Do I Request a Transcript?
Official transcripts cannot be released unless the student (or alumni) has satisfied all financial or other obligations to the College.
Transcript requests are not accepted via phone or email.
Paul Quinn College (PQC) has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcripts ordering via the internet. This provides students and alumni online ordering service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Transcript requests are processed in the order they are received twice a day during business hours. That is, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Requests placed after 1:00 p.m. are processed the next business day. Requests that are placed during holidays or days the campus is closed will be processed in the order they are received when the office reopens.
The website walks you through placing an order, including delivery options and fees (see below). You may order as many transcripts as you like in a single session. To ensure confidentiality and to comply with federal regulations governing education records, you must authenticate yourself. This is done during the ordering process.
To order a transcript, login to the National Student Clearinghouse secure site here.
Walk-in requests for official transcripts may be made at the Registrar’s Office located in the Adams Building - Room 214, 3837 Simpson Stuart Rd, Dallas, Texas.

Photo identification is required to order a transcript to be picked up.
Official transcripts can be mailed to both Paul Quinn College and Bishop College students, alumni, and other third parties. Transcripts requested to be mailed to other institutions must be requested via the National Student Clearinghouse secure website here.
Paul Quinn College official transcripts may be sent electronically via PDF to other institutions or third parties for students who attended Paul Quinn College after summer 2007.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the receiving institution or person accepts electronic PDF transcripts. The PDF option must be selected when ordering online. PDF transcripts can only be requested online for an additional cost.
NOTE: Recipients must be designated under the original order placed through the NSC secure website where they must retrieve the official transcript. The PDF bears the PQC logo in the background. Forwarded copies are classified as unofficial transcripts. Recipients have 30 days in which to view or print the PDF transcript from the first day it is made available to the recipient. After 30 days the PDF will expire. PDF transcripts may NOT be saved to the recipient’s computer.
Paul Quinn College and Bishop College students and alumni may pick-up their official transcripts at the Registrar’s Office in the Adams Building - Room 214, 3837 Simpson Stuart Drive, Dallas, Texas. Business office hours are listed above. Photo identification is required.
