Important Update regarding transcripts:
We strongly encourage all transcripts to be ordered through parchment from March 23 through August 15 ( subject to change). Transcript requests received through U.S. mail will only be processed on Wednesdays during this time period. In-person requests or Parchment walk-up or pick-up requests are not being accepted.
Unofficial transcripts may be viewed by current students through the Hollins Information System (https://prodssb.hollins.edu/). There are two ways to order official transcripts from Hollins University as outlined in the request guidelines below.
1. Parchment Online Transcript Processing
Working in partnership with Parchment Inc., Hollins University uses a Parchment solution to automate the University’s transcript request process. This allows you to order a transcript electronically via the Web and send either electronic or paper transcripts. You can order transcripts using any major credit card. Your card will be charged only after your order has been completed.
- To order official transcript(s), login to: Parchment Inc.
- The site will walk you through creating an account and placing your order, including delivery options and fees. You can request as many transcripts as you like in a single session.
- You should verify that the transcript recipients will accept electronic transcripts before choosing that option. Because the emails from Parchment are from a “no reply” address, recipients may need to check their “junk” folder for errant emails.
- Order updates will be emailed to you. Check your order status or history through your online Parchment account.
2. By Mail to the Registrar’s Office
- Download a transcript request form – please read carefully, print and complete required information, sign and mail to address on form. Mail request form with payment of $10.00 for each official transcript to: Registrar’s Office, Hollins University, Box 9708, 7916 Williamson Rd, Roanoke, VA 24020
