What will happen to my academic records after closure?
Academic records will be preserved and accessible after MacMurray College closes. Records have been transferred to the Illinois State Board of Education.

How will I be able to obtain an official transcript?
Students and alumni can order official transcripts through the Parchment electronic service:

  1. Set up an account at the Parchment website.
  2. Follow the on-site directions to submit orders.

Your legal signature is required to release a transcript which is collected by Parchment, so MacMurray cannot accept requests by phone. Ordering in person or by mail, fax, or email also is no longer available. You must submit a Parchment request and pay the transcript fee.

All transcripts, including those sent directly to you, undergo the same processing. Transcripts through Parchment are a total of $15 including their fee. Additional delivery options through Parchment are ordered and paid through them.

What will happen to the MacMurray campus?

What will happen to MacMurray's endowment?
