Transcript Information

A transcript is a student's complete academic record at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. The transcript(s) that were presented for admission have become an integral part of the files of the admitting offices and cannot be released, either directly or for copying purposes. It will be necessary for you to write directly to the institutions concerned to obtain copies of those previous records. In addition, documents such as SAT/ACT scores are not available from the Office of the Registrar. Transcripts will be released only upon the written request of the student. Requests are processed within three to five business days. Under certain circumstances, such as the end of the term or upon graduation, requests may take longer to process. Requests will not be processed if you have any financial obligations outstanding to the University. No fee is required for standard delivery transcripts.

Types of Transcripts:

Official Transcripts are printed on special protective paper or created with a secure PDF format. The transcript is only official if it has the University of Michigan-Dearborn seal and the Registrar's signature. Official transcripts given directly to a student will be stamped Issued to Student and may not be accepted as official.

Unofficial Transcripts do not contain the University of Michigan-Dearborn seal or the Registrar's signature. Students may obtain an unofficial transcript at anytime via UM-Dearborn Connect.
