Requesting Your Ferris Transcripts

To request a transcript on-line:

  • Current students can login to the Ferris State University website, click on MyFSU and enter their User Name and Password. Click on the My Academics tab and then the Transcripts and Enrollment Verification link. This will open the National Student Clearinghouse where you can enter your online request for transcripts from Ferris State University.

  • Former students or Current International Students can also connect to the National Student Clearinghouse, create an account there, and request transcripts from Ferris State University. Using this method will require you to sign a release form and fax it to the Clearinghouse each time transcripts are ordered or the order will not be processed.

To request a transcript via mail:
Current and former students may click Transcript Request (Printable), which will also print the Transcript Procedure along with it. Our address is at the top of the form.

To request a transcript in person:
If you are in Big Rapids, you may come in to Timme Center for Student Services to complete a transcript request form.

Transcript fees:
Transcripts are $5.00 per copy. Online transcript ordering through the National Student Clearinghouse carries an additional per order processing charge of $2.25 but gives you the option of paying by credit card.

Transcripts requested by using the Records Office ordering form are $5.00 per transcript. Payment can be made by cash, money order or check payable to Ferris State University.

Immediate service transcripts have a service charge of $5.00 and are processed the same working day if the request is received before noon. For example, if you were to order 3 transcripts on one request, you would be charged $15 for the transcripts plus the additional flat fee of $5 to have immediate service, for a total of $20 to send the three transcripts immediate service.

All transcript fees (and any express shipping fees) must be paid for at the time of request. We will not mail transcripts and then bill you nor can transcript fees be charged to your account.

Regular Processing:
Transcripts are sent first class U.S. mail. We normally put transcripts in the mail within two business days of receiving your request. Immediate service requests are processed the same day as long as the request is received prior to noon.

Express Processing:
Ferris State University provides two types of express shipping. We use Federal Express next day service for a charge of $35.00 per address. This cost includes the mailing service fee, an official transcript and immediate same day service. Federal Express does not deliver to PO boxes.

The second type of express shipping is Postal Express for a charge of $25.00 per address and it takes one to two days to arrive at the destination.

Ferris State University does not fax transcripts.

Transcripts may be released only when all financial obligations to Ferris State University have been met.

No business is conducted on days when Ferris is closed - weekends, holidays and the time between Christmas and New Year's. Please plan accordingly.
