Order Transcripts Online
The Los Rios colleges have contracted with Parchment to provide transcript ordering and electronic delivery of PDF transcripts. Parchment can send PDF transcripts through an encrypted and secure service to any valid email address (another college or university, third-party recipient, or the requestor).
Current students, former students, and alumni can request a PDF transcript online anytime and from virtually anywhere. Submit separate orders for each Los Rios college attended.
Note: Students who attended Folsom Lake College before summer 2003 will need to order transcripts from Cosumnes River College, since FLC was part of CRC at that time.
Order official transcripts online through eServices. Click Academic Records, then Request Official Transcript.
Check Order Status Online
Current and former students can check the status of a transcript order online via their Parchment account.
The first two transcripts requests are free for each Los Rios college attended. After that, each transcript request costs $5.00. New Parchment users need to set up an account for the first order.

Important Order Information
Orders Needed Quickly
If you need your transcript quickly, then we recommend that you select the PDF delivery option. PDF transcripts are official transcripts. However, please be aware that when sending a PDF transcript to yourself, it cannot then be forwarded to a different email address. Forwarding a PDF transcript makes it unofficial. If your transcript is going to a third party, then you should have it sent directly to their email address.
Student and Alumni Responsibilities
Students and alumni assume responsibility for the following:
- Providing the correct mailing address and/or email address.
- Ensuring the recipient accepts your chosen method of delivery.
- Ordering with enough time to meet the recipient's deadline.
- Following up with the recipient to ensure the order's arrival.
Current Semester Transcripts
Official transcripts for the current semester will be processed after final grades are submitted. At the end of the semester, you can check that your current grades are included by viewing your unofficial transcript in eServices. Work-In-Progress grades will be included for current courses.
Third Party Authorization
Student records are protected by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). If a third party is picking up your transcripts, they must provide an authorization signed by you. Online requests that are automatically verified through eServices (or another automated authentication) are the exception to this rule.
We are not responsible if your transcript is lost by the US Postal Service, FedEx, or the school or agency it was sent to. We are also not responsible if you provide the wrong mailing address and your transcript is lost as a result. You will have to pay the normal fees for new transcript orders.
