Official transcripts may be mailed (see address below) or hand delivered in the institutions’ original sealed envelope. An official transcript can also be sent through an electronic transcript database provider such as Scrip-Safe, Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, or others. Electronic transcripts should be sent directly to Theresa Jennings at Transcripts are considered official if they are sent to JMU directly from the issuing institution.
