Higher Education Albany, NY


The Registrar’s Office provides students (and alumni) with a wealth of information and services to navigate the educational landscape at Maria.  Below are some helpful links students can use to access information and complete a variety of administrative tasks.

Please note: In December, we will begin using the National Student Clearinghouse for all online transcript requests. The changeover to this new third-party vendor may cause a slight disruption in service, so be sure to allow additional time for any transcript requests you make during this month. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar’s Office at registrar@mariacollege.edu.

How to Receive Your Official Transcript from Maria College
A transcript is a complete official academic record for the period of time enrolled showing courses taken, credits hours earned, grades received, semester and overall grade point averages as well as degrees and certificates conferred at Maria College.   All transcripts are printed on security paper, bearing the signature of the Registrar and the Maria College seal.  All financial obligations to Maria College must be met before an official transcript can be released.

Online Request- (Electronic or Paper Transcript)

Maria College offers the convenience of ordering your transcripts online through Credentials eScrip-Safe: You must pay by credit or debit card to order online.
