If a transcript is not received within 2 weeks following the date it was sent from our office, it will be sent again at no charge to the student. We request that you check with the receiver to be sure that they have not received it and verify that the address provided was correct before calling our office to have transcripts re-sent.
Transcript Requests can now be requested by email Registrar@uni.edu, but still require a signed release. We have re-vamped our Transcript Request Form to be a fillable document. Unless you have an electronic signature file stored on your computer, you will be unable to sign the form electronically. As a result, you will need to print out the Transcript Request Form, sign it, and either fax, mail, or scan and e-mail it back to our office.
Upon receiving a transcript request, it is normally processed and sent back out within 1-2 business days. By way of regular mail, a transcript can be expected to arrive within one to two weeks.
An unofficial grade report will NOT be sent with the diploma upon graduation. Official copies must be ordered by way of a transcript request form.
Other schools I have attended have issued free or inexpensive copies of my transcript post-graduation. Why does UNI charge $16?
The $16 charge for transcripts at the University of Northern Iowa was determined by the Iowa Board of Regents. The price fluctuates each year, and all three state institutions charge the same fee for their transcripts.
The Office of the Registrar only issues official transcripts on security sealed paper. If the student wishes to request a transcript while in our office and take it with them immediately, we stamp the transcript "Issued to Student."
If a current student needs to see their grade report, they can access the online grade report via their MyUNIverse account:
Transcript requests are processed immediately whether or not payment is included. If the request does not include payment, the transcript will be mailed and a bill will be generated and sent to the requestor's current billing address. Transcripts or certificates will not be released until all delinquent accounts have been paid. If you have questions on your delinquent account please call Office of Business Operations at 319-273-2164 or e-mail the Cashier's Office.
If I fax/email my transcript request, how can I pay you? Should I mail a check with the original request to your office?
If payment does not accompany the Transcript Request Form, our office will send you a bill in the mail (to the address that you have listed in the Student Contact Information section) for the total cost of the transaction. Please note that this will not delay the delivery of your transcript.
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, your signature is required to authorize the release of your transcripts.
