Office of the University Registrar

Transcript Requests

Through a partnership with the National Student Clearinghouse, students and alumni can order both electronic and hard copy transcripts. Electronic transcripts are securely delivered within one business day of completion of your order. Hard copy transcripts are sent within three-five business days after completion of your order.

  • 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.
  • Students will have the opportunity to upload any necessary attachments to be included with their transcript order.  Please note, due to the automated nature of the electronic transcript service, the registrar’s office will not be able to complete missing fields on attachments to be sent with e-transcripts.  All fields must be complete prior to submission through the system.

All transcript requests for the following schools can be processed through the National Student Clearinghouse.

  • The School of Arts and Sciences
  • The Hajim School of Engineering
  • The Warner School of Education
  • The Simon School of Business
  • The School of Nursing

Important end of term information: Prior to ordering your transcript, please inspect your record on Student Access to confirm all grades, degrees and honors have been posted. 

The Registrar’s Office will not process hard copy undergraduate transcripts requested to be mailed to home addresses until Wednesday May 23rd  after the close of grading. 

Transcripts requested to be sent to third parties such as schools and employers will continue to be mailed within 3-5 business days throughout this time. 

Degrees and honors will be posted on official records for students in the Class of 2018 by Friday June 1st.


Due to circumstances beyond our control, it will NOT be possible for the University Registrar’s Office to produce paper transcripts until approximately May 16th.  If at all possible, students and alumni should order electronic (PDF) transcripts in the interim.  Please check with receiving institutions to assure that they will accept electronic records.
