Please be advised that official transcripts are not issued to students or alumni.  If your application instructions require that you include an official transcript with the other materials, we will send the official transcript to you in a sealed envelope addressed to the recipient - Don't break the seal.  To do so, we must have the name of the institution/organization where the transcript will be sent. Unofficial transcripts may be ordered for personal use - current students can print an unofficial transcript directly from Banner Self-Service through the Dickinson Gateway (once logged in click on the Banner Self-Service tab, then select Student, followed by Student Records, then Academic Transcript). Faxed transcripts are unofficial.
