Ordering Transcripts

Pierce College makes available to its students both unofficial and official transcripts. Unofficial transcripts are great for your personal records. Official transcripts are often required by other colleges or universities, or employers.

For GED transcripts, visit the GED program website.

Transcripts cannot be provided until a student's financial obligations to the college have been met. This includes payment of library and parking fines.

Unofficial Transcripts

If you attended Pierce College anytime since 1986, you can view and print your unofficial transcripts through MyPierce link from any computer with internet access or at the kiosks at any Pierce College campus. To access, you must know your student ID number and PIN.

If you attended Pierce (or Fort Steilacoom Community College) prior to 1986 or are unable to access MyPierce, you must follow the procedures for an official transcript.

Official Transcripts

Students can order official transcripts two ways, either online or by written request.

If you request delivery by mail or overnight shipping additional fees will apply.

Written Requests
