Order an Official Transcript

We issue transcripts for Bethel University in St. Paul, MN. Our institution was formerly Bethel College and Seminary in St. Paul, MN. Additional Seminary campuses were Bethel Seminary San Diego and Bethel Seminary of the East.

You can order both electronic and paper versions of your transcript online. Electronic transcripts are considered official when they’re delivered to your recipient, but they become unofficial if they’re passed on to another recipient. We have step by step instructions that will guide you through this process:
