An official transcript is a copy of a student’s entire academic record from the University of Cincinnati, bearing the official University seal and stamp. Only official transcripts may be released to a student or sent to a third party. In recognition of the confidentiality of student records, an official transcript of that record will be released only at the request of the student, except under due process of the law. Only written and signed or online requests can be accepted. We cannot accept requests by telephone, email, or fax; and currently we do not offer electronic transcripts.
Degree candidates should be aware that degree certification may not be posted for up to three weeks following grading of your final term.
Requesting a transcript online will prompt the printing of the transcript for the next business day. We cannot hold transcripts requested through the online transcript request system. Online requests should only be made when transcripts are to be printed as soon as possible and you believe that your academic transcript is complete, including degrees and grade changes. View recent grades or verify your recently awarded degree online before requesting a transcript to verify that information in advance.
Note: Current term classes do not print on a transcript until grades have been officially posted to your grade report.
