Student Forms and Resources
Electronic PDF Transcripts: Bennington has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide electronic PDF transcripts. The fee for an electronic PDF of your transcript is $4.00 ($1.75 delivery method fee + $2.25 processing fee) per email address. After the request is processed, your transcript will be mailed electronically. If you are sending your transcript via the Electronic Exchange to another participating college, the cost is reduced to $2.25 per school. You can order transcripts using any major credit card. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed. Please allow 7 business days for processing.
Paper Transcripts: You may still order a free hard copy transcript by completing the form and returning it to the Registrar’s Office. Please be sure to sign the form, and allow up to 10 business days for your request to be processed. While the College does not pay for expedited shipping, we do accept pre-paid shipping labels purchased by the individual to be attached to their transcript mailing. These labels can be emailed to our office along with the request form.
