Office of the Registrar
Trident offers you assistance in securing your official transcripts (excluding military, CLEP, and DSST) when applying as a new student, simply fill out the Transcript Release Authorization Form. However, it is ultimately your responsibility to make sure that your official transcripts have been received by Trident.
Trident University is happy to fulfill your request for a transcript of your Trident records. The cost is $10 per copy. Please allow 3 to 5 business days for processing. We can’t release transcripts if you have an outstanding financial obligation to Trident.
In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), Trident University will require written permission from students in order to release any information from a student’s record (excluding directory information). However, FERPA permits non-consensual disclosure in certain circumstances and in cases where legally required. Complete the FERPA form and email it to the Office of the Registrar.
