Official Transcripts can be sent to:

Official Transcripts

  • Official transcripts are the academic record from another institution that bears the Registrar’s signature, college seal, and produced on the authorized paper or electronic format.
  • Official transcripts should be sent directly to Midland College from the other institution where you attended previously.
  • If you decide to bring the document to the college, the official transcript must remain sealed in the institution’s envelope. 
  • Transcripts that have been opened, or emailed from your personal email account, are not considered official and will not be accepted as official.
  • To view official transcripts received by Midland College, please log into to My MC Portal and choose "Registration Options" and click on "Transcript Tracking". Transcripts received by Midland College will appear in green.

FAXED/SCANNED/COPY AND PASTED TRANSCRIPTS ARE NOT CONSIDERED OFFICIAL

Warning!!

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a program designed to help students be successful in college. It includes assessment of students before entering a state-supported college or university, advisement and an individual plan designed to prepare students to meet college-readiness skills. Students are required to submit TSI assessment test scores or proof of exemption prior to enrolling.

HELPFUL INFORMATION

    • In most cases, Transient students in Texas have already addressed the TSI requirement at their home institution. Please request that your institution include your TSI information on your transcript (if the institution is a Texas public college or university).

    • Students who are from a private or out-of-state college or university may meet the TSI requirement if the student has earned college-level coursework in English (equivalent to ENGL1301 or 1302) or any college-level Math.

    • Visit our TSI Information page for more information. 

    TSI Information

  • Students taking online classes only do not need to submit meningitis documentation. They will receive a notification that there is a hold on their account, acknowledge the message, and continue to add the class. The hold keeps students from registering for on-MC campus classes.  

    As of January 1, 2014, all entering students under the age of 22 at an institution of higher education are required to show proof of an initial meningococcal vaccination or a booster dose during the five-year period prior to enrolling. They must get the vaccine at least 10 days before the semester begins. Students planning to take online classes only are not required to submit meningitis documentation. 

    HELPFUL INFORMATION

    • When submitting meningitis documentation via email or fax, include your MC student ID number.
    • Local pharmacies that carry the vaccine include: HEB, Grahams, and Walgreens.
    • Typical shot cost at pharmacy is $129.00.

    EXEMPTIONS
    A separate, signed application must be submitted ONLINE for each individual to receive an exemption from Texas meningococcal vaccination requirements. This form is for official use only and is not valid if photocopied. You must have a working printer to complete this transaction.

    Exemption Form
