Transcript Requests

Important Note on Upcoming Changes to Transcript Requests

Beginning May 8th, students and alumni can log on to the National Student Clearinghouse website to order electronic or hard copy transcripts. Electronic transcripts are securely delivered within one business day of completion of your order. The Clearinghouse charges a $3.25 processing fee for electronic transcripts and $2.25 for hard copy transcripts.

Starting on May 8th the following transcript delivery methods will be available.

  • Electronic Transcripts ($3.25 per destination address)
  • Hard Copy Transcripts ($2.25 per destination address with up to 10 copies per destination address. Example, 1 transcript or 10 transcripts to the same address within the same order would be a total of $2.25)
  • FedEx Options: United States ($17.25); Canada/Mexico ($32.25); All other International ($52.25)

After this date options for transcript requests for Pickup or Third Party Pickup will no longer be available.

Students will need to provide either URID or Social Security number to validate their request.

You can pay for your transcript order with any major credit or debit card. Your credit or debit card is not charged until University of Rochester sends your transcript(s). However, if you use a debit card, your bank may put a hold on your funds when we pre-authorize your payment. If you have questions on the pre-authorization, please contact your bank.

Order updates will be sent to you via email and, if you choose, text messages. You can also track your transcript order online.

Transcripts cannot be released if the student’s account shows any type of HOLD. If you request a transcript while there is a hold on your account, you will be notified of the hold.

Ordering Prior to May 8th

Students and Alumni may order up to 20 transcripts free of charge each academic year (9/1-8/31) by any of the following four options below. Production time for transcripts is 3 - 5 business days once the request is received.
