An official transcript is a comprehensive record of your academic progress, including transfer courses, credit earned by exam and earned degrees. Your name appears on your official transcript as it appears on your university record. Official transcripts include the university seal and signature of the registrar.
Student academic records are classified as confidential and may be released only with the student’s written authorization and signature, in accordance with the Public Information Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.
Official transcripts cannot be released to students who have not met their financial obligations to the university.
Transcripts may not be requested by phone or email (without a signed PDF Transcript Request form attached) and are not issued to students who have not met their financial obligations to the university. All requests are generally processed within two working days. There is no fee for official transcripts ordered using these methods. Transcripts requested through these options cannot be returned or issued by fax or email. For emailed transcripts, see the National Student Clearinghouse option above.

The Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) provides a naming system that supports the accurate tracking and reporting of fields of study and program completions activity. CIP was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 1980, with revisions occurring in 1985, 1990 and 2000. Learn more about these early revisions to the CIP and access specific links to historical versions from this resources page. For information about versions after CIP 2000, click the “change year” link on the resources page to see the available versions.
