Please Note:

  • The name on your official student record (including diplomas and transcripts) cannot be changed after your degree has been conferred.
  • Once a student opens the envelope that their official paper transcript comes in through the US Mail, the transcript becomes an unofficial document.  The student will not be able to present this transcript as an official document once the envelope has been opened.


Binghamton University has appointed Parchment as the designated agent for processing and sending official paper transcripts on behalf of Binghamton University.  Parchment has been granted the authority to deliver all such paper transcript requests on behalf of Binghamton University and respond to any inquiries regarding the transactions.
