Please read before requesting a transcript:
Transcripts can be ordered via the Web 24/7 through the National Student Clearinghouse. (Please read about the recently identified NSC security breach.) You can place as many orders as you like in one session using any major credit card. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed. Order updates are available via mobile text message and will also be emailed to you. You can also track your order online using your email address and order number. Your signed consent may be required to fulfill your transcript order. For your convenience, a consent form will be generated for your order that you can approve instantly online or return via fax, mail, or as a scanned email attachment.
Final grades are official once they are posted in your PAWS account. If your grades are posted in your Canvas shell, please check your PAWS account FIRST before requesting a "Current Transcript" to send. Otherwise use the "After Grades are Posted" option.
Transcript requests with missing address information will be sent as is and Barton is not responsible for undelivered transcripts. The US Post Office will deliver the transcript to the location on the request typically within 7-10 business days. Barton will issue another paper transcript if the transcript has not been received at the requested location within 30 days.
Make sure you have a Social Security Number (SSN) on file with Barton. If you do not already have a SSN on file a hold will be placed on your account preventing you from obtaining a transcript. Email the Enrollment Services Office at firstname.lastname@example.org for your options in providing a social security number to Barton.
Students that have a hold on their transcript for an invalid social security number are required to submit the following documents for verification:
- Valid and current Driver's License
- Social Security Card
Both documents will need to show the same first name and last name of the student to update the records at Barton. Transcripts will not process without the submission of the valid documents.
Students can submit the documents:
- In person
- Email to email@example.com
- Fax to 620-786-1175
Unofficial transcripts are available online through your MyBarton Portal for those students that have no outstanding financial obligations on their accounts. Enrollment Services may provide an unofficial transcript to students that are currently enrolled in Barton classes. If a student is no longer enrolled in Barton classes, and a financial obligation exists, unofficial transcripts will not be provided to the student. Advisors and coaches may access unofficial transcripts for purposes of advising, but will not provide the unofficial transcripts to students or third parties outside the institution.
Access to the Barton Portal is no longer available to students after two years after their last enrollment period. If you no longer have access to the Barton Portal, contact the Office of Enrollment Services for assistance.

The hand delivered transcript must be placed in the school letterhead envelope with the Registrar’s signature or school stamp imprinted on the sealed back flap. Opening the envelope will render that transcript invalid. (No exceptions)
