Transcript Ordering

Information about ordering University of Cincinnati transcripts can be found on this page. 

Due to the COVID–19 pandemic, the Office of the Registrar will no longer accept mailed–in transcript requests. All transcripts must be ordered online. 

Overview

University of Cincinnati partners with Parchment for ordering and processing all outgoing official transcripts, including paper and electronic PDF. As our agent, Parchment will collect all fees and send email confirmations of your orders.

Accessing Your Transcripts

Information About Login Credentials for Transcript Ordering

Students who attended UC anytime since 1999 should have been assigned login credentials for UC online systems. The fastest way to order your transcripts is to use those login credentials. When you order transcripts this way, you will be passed through UC's current registration system, Catalyst, where you can take a look at your record prior to ordering your transcripts.

Visit One Stop's Personal Information page to access the Get My Username utility. If you are unable to easily obtain your login credentials, please use the Transcript Ordering for Past Students Without Login Credentials link below instead of contacting IT@UC. If you are unable to obtain your login credentials via this utility, the Office of the Registrar should still be able to find your student record. Please view the information below about ordering transcripts directly via Parchment. Email reginfo@uc.edu with any questions.

If you are able to obtain your username but need to reset your password, visit the IT@UC UC Password Self Service portal (or type uc.edu/pss into your browser), and select the Forgotten Password option.

Ordering Transcripts Without Logging Into UC Services

Don't worry if you do not have UC login credentials and need a transcript. Parchment has made it easy to order your transcripts directly through their online portal. Parchment alerts our office that a request has been made, and we manually fill the request by searching the University archives for your record. Note: Requests made directly via Parchment have the potential to take longer to process, and you may see a manual hold on your account while your record is being researched.

If you are a new user, click the Create Account button.

If you have ordered transcripts via Parchment in the past, please make sure you are using your Parchment account to order the transcripts again.

Important Information About Transcript Ordering

Order Notifications and FERPA Compliance

Notifications will be sent to your email directly from Parchment indicating the progress of your transcript request. An official transcript is a copy of a student’s entire academic record from the University of Cincinnati, bearing the official University seal and signature of the University Registrar. If your academic career at the University of Cincinnati included work from the College of Law and/or the College of Medicine, you will need to request those transcripts as well. 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. Parchment is a Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliant application. By proceeding through the checkout and clicking next, you (the student) are providing consent to release your transcript and to receive email notifications regarding your order.

Electronic Transcript Information

Online service is available 24/7 and time is recorded in Mountain Standard Time. Electronic transcripts carry a security feature verifying that the transcript has not been altered. Transcripts are delivered as a digital PDF and must be accessed by the recipient within 30 days. The Registrar’s Office does not determine the accuracy of the email address provided or whether the recipient will accept the eTranscript. You may want to confirm that the receiving institution is set up to receive electronic transcripts prior to using this option. Students may also upload PDF attachments to accompany their transcripts.

Transcripts and Holds on Accounts

Before ordering a transcript, students must clear any holds or service indicators that block the release of transcripts before they can place an order. Login to your Catalyst account to check your service indicators. If your Catalyst portal does not indicate why you have a service block, please contact the One Stop Student Service Center at onestop@uc.edu or by phone at 513-556-1000.

Degree Certification and Grade Posting

Please check to make sure your grades and degrees are posted before ordering your transcript. We do not hold transcripts for grade or degree posting.

To confirm your degree has been certified (conferred or awarded), login to your Catalyst student portal and click on the My Academics tile. Next select the Graduation/Commencement bar, and then click View Graduation Status.

Processing Times

Mailed paper transcripts may arrive up to two weeks after order is placed.

Most transcripts will be emailed or sent via mail within one–three business days. Transcript requests for alumni and former students who attended the University before 1999 may require additional processing time as their secure records must be retrieved from University archives.

Once the order is confirmed, it cannot be canceled, changed, held, or refunded.

Pricing

  • The cost of each electronic transcript ordered is $8.50.
  • The cost of each paper transcript ordered is $11.00.

Express shipping may be purchased for an additional cost.

Sending Previous Institution Transcripts to UC

All college or university transcripts from previous institutions must be requested by the student and sent to the Undergraduate Office of Admissions. Transcripts should not be sent to the Office of the Registrar.
