Your curriculum transcript is a confidential document maintained by the Records and Registration Office in Student Services. It is accessible only to you and those you permit to have copies. Surry Community College charges a $3.00 fee for each official transcript. There is no charge for "unofficial" transcripts.

Transcripts covering a student's high school and previous college education, which have been submitted to the college as a requirement for admission, become a part of the Admissions official file. The college does not reissue or certify copies of transcripts from other institutions. Transcripts must be ordered directly from the institution where the coursework was taken.
