Official Academic Transcript Request

Official Transcript Release Policy

  • Due to production demands in registration services on both campuses, requests for official or unofficial transcripts cannot be processed on demand. Students are advised to plan on a three-to-five business day turn-around on any request.
  • No official transcript will be issued until all financial obligations have been met.
  • Transcripts are issued only at the verified request of the student. The purpose of this policy is to protect the privacy of the individual concerned and to minimize the possibility of the use of another's transcripts by an imposter.
  • Official transcripts are normally issued directly to other educational institutions or prospective employers designated by the student. Official transcripts issued to the student for purposes of transport to another party can be provided in a sealed envelope but will be considered unofficial if opened by anyone besides the intended party. Transcripts are also considered unofficial if faxed. 
  • Current students may print an "unofficial" transcript from U-Online.  This service is only available to students that have access to the site.  As some Graduate programs do not use U-Online, please contact your program directly to confirm.
  • The Univeristy of New England will not forward transcripts via email.
