Can I ask a friend to buy or collect my academic transcript?

Question:

Can I ask a friend to buy or collect my academic transcript?

Answer:

Please follow the steps for either academic transcript request or urgent academic transcript request

Due to the Privacy Act, if you wish for a third party (eg. family member, partner, friend) to collect an official academic transcript on your behalf you must provide them with a third party authority form. This form will need to be received by Student Connect - you can email it along with your academic transcript request form or have your third party bring it in with them.  For example, in the case of urgent requests for academic transcript the third party can bring the three items in person; for a standard request for academic transcript the three items can be either emailed to transcripts@mq.edu.au, posted, faxed, or brought in by the third party. 

The following will need to be provided:

  • transcript request form
  • specimen of the students photo ID signature
  • third party authority form
Both forms are available on the Student Connect forms page.
