Richland Community College uses Parchment to provide official student transcripts. This service provides an easy, secure, electronic method to request, send, and track your transcript. Parchment will deliver your official transcript for free anywhere it needs to go – other colleges and universities, scholarship funds, employers, or even yourself if you need it.
Richland Community College will allow three free transcripts per fiscal year (July 1, XXXX to June 30, XXXX). After the first three transcripts, a charge will be assessed $3.25 for electronic transcripts, $5.75 for paper transcripts.

Any official transcript received by Richland is evaluated for the specific program applied for within two weeks of receipt. Students may review the credit transferred in by going to myRichland and looking on the Unofficial Transcript (college) or Exam Record (high school).
Advanced Placement is an organized instructional and/or testing program offered in high school in cooperation with the College Entrance Examination Board. College credit granted through an AP examination will be recorded as “AP” and will not be used in computing a grade point average. Approved credit will be posted to the student’s record after a minimum of eight (8) semester hours of 100-level or above credit has been earned at Richland. High school students interested in the Advanced Placement Program should contact their high school counselor.
