Official transcripts are produced and issued by the Office of the Registrar; they bear the University seal and the Registrar’s signature. Official transcripts are produced either on security paper and presented in a sealed envelope or they are a secure, digitally signed transcript file in Portable Document Format, PDF.
Official transcripts are not processed if the student has outstanding obligations to the University. Enrolled students can obtain unofficial transcripts through myPBA.
Palm Beach Atlantic University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide transcript ordering via the internet. To order an official transcript, login to the NSC secure site.
The site walks you through placing your order, including delivery options and fees. You can order as many transcripts as you like in a single session. Completing the "Consent to Release" form is required and must be returned to the NSC before orders are processed and credit cards charged.
If you need help or have questions about the NSC’s transcript ordering service, contact them via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (703) 742-7791.
The NSC provides online ordering service for PBA students and alumni 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Orders are processed within three business days by the Office of the Registrar. To ensure confidentiality and to comply with federal regulations when using the internet, you must authenticate yourself. Alumni and students electing the online service are presented with the "Consent to Release" form. You will be instructed to print the form, sign and fax it to the NSC before your order can be completed. In addition to the convenience of credit card payment, the online service provides e-mail notifications as orders are received and processed by the Office of the Registrar.
