Dear Students and Alumni,

Administrative offices at Maine College of Art & Design will be closed from December 23, 2022 to January 2, 2023. Any transcript requests received during that time will be held until the offices open on January 3, 2023. We thank you for your understanding and wish you happy holidays!

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 & Design 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.

Unofficial Transcripts

Enrolled students can print a copy of their cumulative academic record by selecting the Student Info tab in MyMECA&D. 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.

Official Transcript

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 Transcript Request 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 registrar@meca.edu or mail the request form to Maine College of Art & Design, ATTN: Transcripts, 522 Congress St., Portland, ME 04101

Students completing the Transcript Request Form must include the student’s name during attendance at MECA&D, 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 requests but students are limited to 8 per month.

If you have questions about transcript requests, please contact registrar@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 loans. Questions about holds should be addressed to the Student Account 207.699.5049 and/or Registrar.
