Transcripts on Demand
Occidental College and Scrip-Safe International have partnered together to provide our students, former students and alums with access to “Transcripts on Demand”, an online transcript ordering system which provides 24/7 access to transcript ordering. This process is completely secure.
Transcripts may be delivered either through Scrip-Safe’s Global Electronic Transcript Delivery Network or by traditional U.S. mail.
You may pay for your transcript via credit card (Visa, Master Card or Discover). Transcripts on Demand uses the most current security available to protect your credit card and personal information.
You can check the status of your transcript request at any time by logging on to Transcripts on Demand and clicking on the “Review Past Orders” tab. You will also receive email notifications of your order status.

Typical Turnaround Time
The time it takes from your request until your recipient receives your transcript varies because of many factors. The most significant factor is mailing time. Making your request through Transcripts-on-Demand or in person will eliminate the mailing time for your request to reach us. Sending an electronic transcript rather than mailing a paper transcript will eliminate mailing time for the receiver.
You can check on the status of your transcript request by going to the “View Status of Transcript Requests” page in Scrip-Safe. That page will show the date your request was completed or if your request is still in process. Here is what to expect in terms of turnaround time:
- Electronic transcripts requests through Transcripts-on-Demand, usually reach their destination the same day you make the request if requested by 11 a.m. Pacific Time.
- Paper transcripts requested through Scrip-Safe or Transcripts-on-Demand usually take one or two business days to process, not including mailing time.
- Paper transcripts requested through the mail usually take five to seven business days to process, not including mailing time.
Please note that turnaround times may increase during the end of each semester, because of increased volume. Be aware that final grades are posted on transcripts about one week after finals and degrees are posted about one month after a term ends. Please be sure to indicate in the request if you have a deadline by which the transcript must be received.
