How to Request a Transcript
Don’t Wait to Register for Spring Semester

Your college transcript is the official record of all courses taken at RCTC. There are two ways to access your transcript.(RCTC does not accept transcript requests via fax machine nor do we fax transcripts)

RCTC transcripts cannot be released in the following scenarios:

  • There is a hold on your RCTC record.
  • There is a discrepancy (duplicate) on RCTC record.
  • If you attended RCC prior to 1968 and/or RTC prior to 1990*

*RCTC will continue to require a transcript request and charge transcript fees for all archived records.

Official Transcripts:
If you need an official copy of your transcript, you must make a request to RCTC through the National Clearinghouse. An official transcript cost $7.50/transcript for a two-business day turn-around time. For an additional $5/transcript the Records and Registration office will try and release your transcript within two hours of your request, except during peak periods. All official transcripts go regular postal mail. To send transcripts to a MinnState institution, please see below.

Unofficial Transcript (Student Copy):
You can access your full transcript for FREE via the eServices. This transcript is identical to the official transcript in content, however it is not printed on security-paper and thus is not certified as an official RCTC document. Unofficial / Student copies of transcripts are not acceptable generally for employers or other colleges.

To get a FREE copy from the eServices site, follow these instructions or view the steps:

  1. Log in to eServices.
  2. On the left menu select, “Grades and Transcripts”.
  3. Then select from the sub-menu, “Academic Record”.
  4. Select the option by which you want to view your academic record, then select “Get Academic Record”.
  5. Your academic record will be displayed by the criteria you selected. To get just a printable, text copy, select “Text Copy of this Academic Record”.
  6. Remember to log out of your account when finished.

Send Transcript to another Minnesota State Institution
Electronic transcript retrieval is now possible among all MinnState institutions for students who are enrolled or transferring to another MinnState institution. As a result, it is no longer necessary for most students to order transcripts to be sent to another MinnState ask staff at the receiving MinnState institution about their e-transcript retrieval procedures. Only in some cases will you be asked to order your transcript. RCTC will continue to require a request and will charge transcript fees for all archived records to any destination.

Reverse Transcripts (from any Minnesota State institution):
RCTC will attempt to retrieve e-Transcripts from all other Minnesota State institutions you have attended at point of application. If you would like an updated transcript pulled, please submit the Transcript Retrieval Form.
