All official transcript requests carry a charge of $4.00 per transcript and a $2.25 service charge per addressee/recipient.
For example, an order for 4 transcripts to 1 address would be $18.25 (4 x $4 + $2.25), whereas an order for 4 transcripts to 4 different addresses would total $25 (4 x $4 + 4 x $2.25).
For electronic PDF (e-Transcripts) an additional charge of $1.75 is added to the fee structure above due to the digital signature and additional security imposed on the document. In short, the total cost of an e-Transcript is $8 per recipient ($4 + $2.25 + $1.75)
