General Policies

  • The Registrar’s Office must have the student’s written request or authorization to issue a transcript. Parents cannot authorize the Registrar’s Office to mail a transcript.

  • Official Transcripts bear the Institute's seal and Registrar's signature.

  • Partial transcripts are not issued. A transcript is a complete record of all work completed at Pratt.

  • Allow five (5) business days after receipt of the transcript request for the transcript to be mailed. At certain peak times, such as registration and commencement, the processing time may be longer.

  • Transcripts are not released until a student’s account has been paid in full.

  • Copies of transcripts from other schools that were attended must be requested directly from those schools. The Registrar’s office cannot release or copy transcripts in a student’s file.

Requesting Transcripts

Official transcripts may be ordered in three ways: online, by mail, or in person. Please note: if your record has a financial hold, your transcript will not be processed until the hold is cleared.

All transcript requests must have the following information to be processed:

  • Name while attending Pratt Institute

  • Last 4 digits of social security number or 7-digit Pratt ID number

  • Date of birth

  • Telephone number

  • Dates of attendance and/or graduation date

  • Transcript recipient and destination information
