  • Hold until grades are posted - Your transcript will be sent after all grades for the current term are posted to your BYU-Idaho transcript. See Academic Deadlines. First block classes are not posted until the end of the semester.

You can check to see if your degree is posted to your transcript by looking at your graduation application in your student account.

  • Hold until degree is posted - Your transcript will be sent after your degree is posted to your BYU-Idaho transcript. This could be 2-3 business days after final grades are posted if all requirements are met.

If you have a question regarding the content or accuracy of your transcript, please contact Student Records & Registration at 208-496-1024 or
We use Parchment to send transcripts electronically to more than 37 Central Application Services (CAS). When transcripts are sent electronically, there is no need to upload the matching form. In place of the form, you will be required to enter additional information such as the bar code. 
There is an option to upload required forms to your online order. Note: BYU-Idaho will not receive these forms outside of the online order.

Only documents required by your transcript recipient to be sent with your request are allowed. BYU-Idaho has the right to decline an attachment.
These forms must be emailed to prior to making your request online. BYU-I will fill out our portion then email the completed form back to you. You will then make the transcript request online and upload your completed form to the request to be sent with your transcript.
Electronic PDF transcripts are an Official Transcript. Visit the Paper or Electronic website. Some third parties may not accept electronic transcripts. Verify with your recipient before ordering. Typically, a transcript for a third party should be sent directly to the third party, not sent to the student and then forwarded.
The security features embedded into the transcript are preventing the upload. To avoid this problem, first save the PDF to your computer then upload it to your application.
Course descriptions are found online in the BYU-Idaho Academic Catalog: current course descriptions, course descriptions in prior years.

For course syllabi contact campus departments.
If you are seeking employment outside the United States, or transferring to an international university, and need your transcript notarized by BYU-Idaho and/or authenticated (apostilled) by the Idaho Secretary of State, call 208-496-1024 before placing your order.
