How do I order an official transcript or have an official copy mailed to another college?

Online

Hopkinsville Community College (HCC) has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering via the Web. You can order your transcripts using any major credit card. Your credit card will only be charged after your order has been completed.

  • To order an official transcript(s) login to the National Student Clearinghouse secure site at nationalstudentclearinghouse.org.
  • For your convenience, any courses completed within the KCTCS system can be viewed by other KCTCS schools. Therefore, it is not necessary to request an official transcript to be sent.

  • Transcripts will be processed by our office 3-5 days after the order is received from the National Student Clearinghouse. After your order has been processed by HCC, you will receive an email.
