CCAF Transcript

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.

Official Transcript Request– Priority

The CCAF has designated certain transcript requests as priority. Reasons for a priority request include but are not limited to: Senior Master Sgt. promotion board, delayed promotion, commissioning programs, developmental special duty, retirements and separations.

If you believe your request is a priority, you should first place an order through Parchment. Then proceed to the AU Service Desk. Once logged in, under "Quick Links," choose “Official Transcript Request.” Make sure to specify the reason for your priority request and include your parchment order number. CCAF staff will then verify the request, and if deemed a priority will process the request as soon as possible. Priority requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis and can take up to 14 days.
