Transcripts of your Henry Ford College coursework
The Registration and Records Office at HFC maintains the official, permanent academic record of every student who attends. This record is known as a transcript and is updated as grades are received. HFC transcripts include all student credit coursework completed at the College, and any transfer credit issued. There are two types of academic college transcripts:
- Official transcripts
- Student copy transcripts
An official transcript is sent directly from HFC to an external organization such as another college or an employer. An official transcript is currently printed on secure paper. In the summer of 2019, official HFC transcripts will be provided electronically and/or printed using services offered by Credentials Solutions, which will reduce wait time and improve service.
A student copy transcript is generated by the student, using HFC Self-Service, and is considered unofficial. This is for your personal records. It is usually not a valid version for transferring and for employment verification. In some instances, academic institutions and employers who require former or current students to personally provide a transcript with an admission form or employment application will accept a student copy. An official transcript will probably be required after admission or employment.
How do I request a copy of my HFC Transcript?
If you need an unofficial copy of your transcript for personal use, log into HFC Self-Service and visit Unofficial Transcript.
If you need an official copy of your transcript sent to another institution or organization, log into HFC Self-Service and visit Transcript Requests. You will complete the transcript request form and submit the $6.00 transcript fee for each transcript requested. The transcript fee will need to be paid by credit card and the payment is processed when you request your transcript online. You will have the option to send your transcript by Fed Ex for an additional fee. Please allow 1-2 business days for processing, and additional time for delivery. You must not have a financial balance with HFC or any other holds to have your official transcript(s) released.
You may request an official copy of your transcript for your personal use if you wish, but it is the same information you will find in the unofficial copy. If you request an official copy for transfer or employment verification, you will need to request your transcript using the transcript request link and submit the transcript fee as instructed on the HFC website. You will need to enter the contact name and address information of the school/company/organization that you would like the transcript sent to.
If your records are from a long time ago and are not in the current system, the registrar’s office will be notified and they will update your record which will then allow the transcript to be processed and sent as requested.
How do I know my Official Transcript request was processed?
To check the status of your official transcript request, log into HFC Self-Service and visit Transcript Requests. You will be able to track the status of your transcript request because you will be emailed and texted updates as the transcript goes through the request process.
