Where Can You Find a Sample Letter Requesting a Transcript From College?

A sample transcript letter can be found in any college financial aid office, on the college's financial aid website or in a forms database located within a word processing program or online form service.

When writing a letter to request a transcript, the student should include his name, student identification number, dates he was enrolled, current address and information regarding where the transcript should be sent, including the person or college's name. In addition, the student must also indicate payment information to cover the cost of the transcript and indicate if the transcript should be forwarded as official, unofficial or in a sealed envelope.
