Request Transcripts

Currently, Southeast Tech can only provide transcripts electronically and will be delivered in PDF format. You will not experience any delays in the delivery of electronic transcripts. An email address for the transcript recipient will be required during the request process. To be considered official, the transcript must be received directly from Southeast Tech.

Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) was implemented in 1974 as a federal law to protect the privacy of student education records. FERPA also gives students the right to review their education records, seek to amend inaccurate information in their records, and provide consent for the disclosure of their records. This law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA information is published in the Southeast Tech Catalog/Handbook.
