How to order by mail

Please note: Each transcript is issued to a specific recipient (a person, school, company, or organization). For students who attended MIT in 1994 or later, the name of the recipient is printed on the transcript. You may request one of the following for each transcript you order:

To order: Open the Transcript Request Form with Adobe Reader/Acrobat. Please type your information into the form and then print it. Be sure to sign the form; unsigned requests will not be processed.

If you cannot download the form, you may send a signed and dated letter to the Registrar which includes the following:
