Students who desire transcripts of their academic record at Stony Brook, either for their own use or to have forwarded to another institution or agency, can be ordered directly from the students SOLAR account, under Records and Registration, SU Request Official Transcript or by submitting a written request to the Registrar’s Office at least ten days before the transcript is needed. A form for this purpose is available from the Registrar, or can be downloaded and printed from the Registrar’s Webpage at http://www.stonybrook.edu/registrar/forms.shtml. Requests may also be made by letter or facsimile transmission. There is a charge for each official transcript (see Registrar website for details); payment should be made to the Bursar’s Office. If submitted by mail, the request and check payable to Stony Brook University should be sent to the Bursar’s Office, P.O. Box 619, Stony Brook, NY 11790-1351. Partial transcripts of a student’s record are not released unless required by law. Transcripts will be issued only if the student’s financial record shows no outstanding obligation. Students also may view their unofficial transcripts using the SOLAR system at http://www.stonybrook.edu/solarsystem.
