Request a Transcript

If you have questions about the transcript process, please email caaadmissions@cranbrook.edu or call (248) 645-3300.

DUE TO THE HOLIDAY BREAK, TRANSCRIPTS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED BETWEEN WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 21st AND WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 4th.  WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

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.

To download a Transcript Request Form, please click here: Transcript Request Form. The form may be returned to Leslie Tobakos by mail, email (caaadmissions@cranbrook.edu), or fax: (248) 645-3591.

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 a bit sooner, we offer the option of payment by credit card. Please call the Academy Office (248-645-3300) with questions or to pay by card.

Processing Time

Note:  Our Administrative Assistant position, which is responsible for coordinating transcript requests, is currently vacant.  As a result, processing time may take a little bit longer than usual (but we’ll take care of you!). Please plan ahead accordingly, as transcripts will typically be processed just once a week during this busy time. 

Please allow at least two weeks for processing if paying by credit/debit card. If paying by check or money order, your transcript will be processed in this time-frame, and will be sent after payment is received.
