How to Order an Official Transcript

There are several ways to acquire a copy of your transcript

  • You can send us a written request asking for your transcript.
    • You can either send us a short letter that must have the following information:
      • Full Name (please include your maiden name, if applicable, or any other name used while attending the Seminary)
      • Social Security Number
      • Email address or Daytime Telephone Number in the event we need to contact you.
      • Dates of Attendance
      • A Complete Address to Send the Transcript to
      • Signature and Date
    • or you can print out the Transcript Request Form and fill it out. (Note: Depending on the version of Adobe Acrobat Reader which is being used you will be able to fill in the form on the computer and then print out the completed form. Simply sign and mail in)
    • There is a $5.00 fee for each transcript. Transcript requests will not be processed until payment is received.

The request can be mailed to:
Bangor Theological Seminary
Registrar’s Office
PO Box 411
Bangor, ME 04402-0411

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 requires that all transcript requests be in writing, signed and dated by the person to whom the record belongs. Telephone and e-mail requests CANNOT be accepted.

Upon receipt of the written request, official transcripts are normally mailed within three business days. Processing of your official transcript request may vary due to circumstances beyond our control. The Registrar’s Office makes every effort to speed these important documents to your intended recipients.

Official transcripts cannot be faxed; however, we can fax your unofficial transcript, but still require a written transcript request. In lieu of a mailing address, please provide a return fax number.

Name Changes: To change the name on your academic record, you must present to the Registrar’s Office copies of the legal documents which indicate the name change (driver's license, marriage or divorce certificate).

Please Note: It is the policy of Bangor Theological Seminary not to release a transcript to individuals who are indebted to the Seminary.  If a transcript request is denied for any reason written notification will be sent.
