Electronic Transcripts Coming

The Registrar’s office is pleased to announce that the university will begin offering electronic official transcripts starting in early December. These transcripts will be transmitted quickly via secure PDF to any email address that the student selects. Electronic official transcripts are now widely accepted around the world, and can be used in professional and graduate school applications, for licensing boards, and to verify graduation or enrollment for many purposes where official transcripts are required. This service will result in a quicker, easier, and more user-friendly official transcript process for our students and alumni.

Additionally, students will still have the option to request paper official transcripts. This service will be available online and official transcripts will typically be mailed within 24 hours of initial request. Students will have the option to select from different delivery methods ranging from USPS to overnight express. Tracking information will be available for both electronic and paper delivery methods. Both of these services will come with a fee that the student will be responsible for at the time of ordering.

The University will continue to offer paper official transcripts directly to students who come to any UConn Registrar’s office at no charge.

The information provided on this page pertains to Undergraduate, Graduate, Early College Experience, and Non-Degree coursework taken at Storrs or any of the regional campuses. Students wishing to receive transcripts from the School of Dental Medicine, School of Medicine, and School of Law must obtain them directly from the school in which they were enrolled.

Transcripts cannot be requested over the phone. All requests must include the student’s handwritten signature or be submitted through the Student Administration System.

There is no charge for transcripts.
