Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts cost $9.00 each. The preferred method to request a transcript is by ordering it online directly through the Parchment system.

You can sign up for a Parchment account and request your official transcript through the
following link: (you will create an account using non-DSU credentials)




If you are not able to use the online system or need to submit payment by cash or check rather than credit card, please contact the Registrar’s Office at 605-256-5144 or DSU-registrar@dsu.edu.

Official transcript request details 

Official transcripts include all of your courses taken at any South Dakota Board of Regents institution, both undergraduate and graduate, as well as degrees awarded and honors received. Courses transferred from other institutions may appear on your transcript, depending on timeframe and level.

Please note that the six South Dakota state universities have a combined database and a request sent to one university will generate a transcript from each South Dakota state university you attended. Please indicate if you have course work prior to 1990.

We will not be able to issue an official transcript if you have a hold on your record due to unsettled obligations with the University. If you think you might have an unresolved hold from any office at DSU you can call the Office of the Registrar at (605) 256-5154, so that we can check your account. If you have a hold, you will need to contact the appropriate office to resolve your hold before submitting your transcript request.

Transcripts requested online require payment via credit/debit card. In-person requests must be paid at the time of the request in the form of cash, check, money order, or credit/debit card.

Unofficial transcripts

Students with access to Banner Self-Service can print an unofficial copy of their transcript by
following these steps:

Log into Banner Self-Service → Menu → Student Links → My Academic Information →
Unofficial Transcript/Courses and Grades

If you no longer have access to your DSU account, we recommend you request an official transcript and send a copy to yourself to save for your files.

 *Please note that copies of test scores (for example, TOEFEL, GRE, ACT, SAT, GMAT, etc.) will not be provided with your unofficial transcript. You must contact the original institution.
