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.
Our office does not accept credit card payment at this time. If unable to pay by cash or check, a bill will be sent to the students current billing address.
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.
A transcript cannot be requested over the phone as a student signature is required to authorize release of your transcripts in accordance with FERPA of 1974. Please refer to our Transcript Requests Page to learn more about how you can request a transcript.
A financial dependent student whose parents move from Iowa after the student is enrolled remains a resident provided that student maintains continuous enrollment. A financially dependent student whose parents move from Iowa during the senior year of high school will be considered a resident provided the student has not established domicile in another state. If you have any questions please contact Mary Baumann. Mary can be contacted at 319-273-2112 or by email Mary.Baumann@uni.edu.
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, your signature is required to authorize the release of your transcripts.
A signed release is required to remove directory information holds; therefore, we are unable to lift the holds by phone. You may come to our office in person to have the holds removed, or you may do so electronically through your MyUNIverse account.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits a school from disclosing personally identifiable information from students' education records without the consent of an eligible student. Due to this, a student number may not be given over the phone to protect the privacy of the student. If filling out a form that requires this number, please substitute your social security number or visit the office with photo identification to obtain the number.
