Transcript Requests

A Transcript Request Form is required for all transcripts, regardless of whether the request is for an official or an unofficial transcript. In compliance with the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), no transcripts requests will be processed without a properly completed request form.

Any person owing a financial obligation to Cranbrook Academy of Art will be required to clear their balance before a transcript can be issued or education verification can be provided; you will be contacted with the balance owed when your transcript request is received.

There is a $5 processing fee per transcript payable before the transcript can be sent. To assist those who need a transcript quickly, we offer the option of payment by credit card. Please contact the Academy Office ( or 248-645-3300) with questions.

Processing Time

Please allow at least one week for processing if paying by credit/debit card. If paying by check or money order, your transcript will be processed in this timeframe and will be sent after payment is received. Please note:  At certain times of the academic year, the turnaround time may be longer.
