Dear Students and Alumni,
During this time while MECA is closed due to the coronavirus we are still processing transcript requests once weekly on Mondays. Please have your completed transcript request form sent, faxed or emailed by Monday at 9:00 am so we can verify information with other offices. Your transcript may be delayed as the USPS is experiencing unprecedented volume increases and limited employee availability due to the impacts of COVID-19. We appreciate your patience.
The Registration and Academic Advising Office is pleased to offer our students and alumni copies of official transcripts regarding their accomplishments here at Maine College of Art at no charge.
Transcripts are official documents of the college and as such various offices on campus must approve them before they can be released. We acknowledge that transcript requests are often an important and time sensitive inquiry and so we strive to turn them around in 7 business days or less.
Enrolled students can print a copy of their cumulative academic record by selecting the Student Info tab in MyMECA. The cumulative record arranges the academic record in term sequence, but is not official in any way. That is, it is printed on plain paper and does not contain any verifying signatures or official seals. A copy of the cumulative record is generally used by current or former students who don’t need a certified, official copy.
Students who need an official copy of their academic record (called a “transcript”) may come to the Assistant Registrar’s Office and fill out a “Request for Transcript” form. There is a 7 day processing turnaround.
Students can request a transcript by postal mail or fax (207.775.5087). Requests can be sent electronically using this form to Julie Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org. Email requests are not allowed due to privacy regulations as well as authentication issues. Mail requests to: Maine College of Art, ATTN: Transcripts, 522 Congress St., Portland, ME 04101
Students completing the Transcript Request Form, must include the student’s name during attendance at MECA, years of enrollment and major, the number of transcripts requested, where the transcripts should be sent, and a signature allowing us to release the transcripts. There is no charge for processing transcript request but student are limited to 8 per month, please.
If you have question about transcript requests, please contact Julie Smith, Assistant Registrar at 207.699.5057 or email jsmith@MECA.edu. The fax number to use is 207.775.5087.
NOTE: The College will not issue an official transcript if a student owes a past due balance on a student account or has defaulted on repayment of student loan. Questions about holds should be addressed to the Student Account 207.699.5049 and/or Assistant Registrar.
