CCAF Transcript Request

Unofficial Transcript Request

Students should check the Air University Student Information System (CAC Required) before submitting a ticket for unofficial transcripts.

Official Transcript Request

Parchment, a third-party company, handles online ordering. You can order through their site anytime and select from two delivery options. The electronic transcript option costs $3.10, while the first-class mail option costs $5.60. DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY TO CCAF.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Air and Space Force does not cover these fees. Once your order is approved through Parchment, it is transmitted to CCAF electronically. Our staff verifies the request and uploads a copy of your official AU or CCAF transcript to Parchment's secure site. Parchment then completes the final process of delivering your transcript according to your order. As CCAF continues the transitioning to a modernized student information system, some requests may take up to 90 days.

If you are experiencing issues after your order is approved through Parchment, please contact Parchment directly at https://www.parchment.com/chat-support/. If you need to include an attachment with your transcript (Nursing, CAS, SOPHAS, CASPA, AMCAS, LSAC, etc.), ensure the attachment is uploaded in Parchment before submitting your order.

Sending Transcripts to CCAF

CCAF only accepts official transcripts sent directly from schools to CCAF. CCAF will not accept faxed, unofficial, or transcripts marked "Issued to Student." Additionally, transcripts are NOT accepted from students, counselors, recruiters, or any other third party.

Avoid sending multiple transcripts to CCAF by sending only once upon completion of all desired transfer credits. Additionally, multiple submissions of the same transcript will "bump" previously submitted transcripts from your place in our queue.

Electronic transcripts are preferred, and most vendors provide students with delivery receipt at CCAF. Visit your school's website and follow their instructions to send directly to CCAF. Select Community College of the Air Force or ccaf.etranscript@us.af.mil as the recipient. CCAF accepts from these vendors:
Joint Service Transcript
Parchment
National Student Clearinghouse

CCAF discourages but accepts paper transcripts directly from schools. This method is slower, tracking is not available, and CCAF has limited ability to search for lost paper transcripts. The schools should mail paper transcripts to the following address:
CCAF/DRCR
100 South Turner Boulevard
Maxwell AFB, Gunter-Annex, AL 36114-3011

SENDING CLEP/DSST TEST RESULTS TO CCAF

Scores for all DANTES-funded CLEP and DSST exams taken by U.S. Air Force members are automatically reported to CCAF. If your CLEP or DSST was self-funded (retests), you will need to request an official transcript by designating CCAF as a recipient when you test or following the instructions at https://www.dantes.mil/transcripts/.

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS

CCAF may accept international courses if applicable to your degree program. For transfer consideration, in addition to having your school send an official transcript to CCAF, submit a course-by-course evaluation from a transcript evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). Follow the instructions on the NACES-member website to have your official transcript translated (if not in English), evaluated, and forwarded to CCAF.
