Heritage College and Missouri College
The Missouri Department of Higher Education (MDHE) received most student records electronically from both Heritage College and Missouri College; some records were also received in hard copy. However, the MDHE cannot confirm we received complete records.
Please contact the MDHE at (573) 751-2361 to see if we have your records before sending payment. If we have your transcript, you will be asked to complete the appropriate Student Transcript Request form (see below) and mail or fax the document to this department along with payment via check or money order of $10 per transcript.
Weston notified the MDHE on July 17, 2017, all Heritage College student transcripts had been provided to Parchment. You may contact Parchment to receive your transcript for a small processing fee. Some Missouri College student transcripts may also be available through Parchment.
