Students Enrolled Prior to 1986

Students who attended before 1986 may go directly to the Parchment Ordering page and create an account to make your request. Any student whose CNM academic credit record includes attendance before 1986 may have a "legacy" record that lives in our archives. Please allow extra processing time for these transcripts.

Still Waiting for Final Grades

If you are still waiting for your final grades you have two options:

  1. Order your official transcript after your grades appear on your online unofficial transcript.
  2. When ordering your transcript, select "Hold for Grades" (this can be done in the current term only).

Including Attachments with Transcript Request

Parchment allows you to attach supporting documents to transcripts. If requesting an electronic transcript with attachment, please verify with the recipient that they will accept electronic transcripts. Simply attach your completed form or other supporting documents when entering your "Order Options" in Parchment. Please note that attached documentation must be completed prior to submitting your request to Parchment.

    Authorizing Someone Else to Pick Up Your Transcript

    To authorize another person to pick up your paper transcript at the Registrar's Office, you must enter that person's name in the "Recipient Name" field when ordering the transcript. If you didn't include their name on the request, you may send a signed memo with the recipient authorizing them to pick up your transcript. The person you authorize to pick up must bring their own photo ID (example: NM driver’s license).
