The Office of the University Registrar will provide an official transcript of a student’s academic record issued directly to the student or to a third party provided the student has given proper authorization to the Registrar’s Office.

Transcripts can be ordered online by current students and alumni of the university. Online transcript ordering is convenient, can be done from any location 24/7, and provides emails to inform students/alumni on the status of their request.

  • The fee for an official transcript is $9.25 ($7.00 for the transcript and an additional $2.25 processing fee which goes to the NSC). Payment information is submitted through the online request. Charges are not applied to the credit card until the transcript is sent.
  • FedEx delivery is an additional $15 per domestic location or $30 per international location.

Official transcripts are printed on University transcript paper and include the Registrar’s signature and University Seal. Official transcripts issued directly to students/alumni are in a sealed envelope with the Registrar’s signature across the back flap. See the How To Order a Transcript section for instructions on ordering an official transcript.

For information on unofficial transcripts, see the How To Order a Transcript section.

If picking up the transcript order in person, a student must show photo identification upon receipt.

Important: If anyone other than the student/alumnus/alumna will be picking up the transcript(s), authorization must come directly from the student/alumnus/alumna prior to pickup, and the individual must show photo identification upon receipt.

If the student/alumnus/alumna do need another individual to pick up their transcript request, they should include that instruction in the “Special Instructions” section when placing the online order.

Students who pay expedited charges are selecting Federal Express delivery rather than US Postal Service delivery. For orders that have been submitted to be sent via Federal Express paying for expedited delivery will not guarantee faster processing of the request, but we will make every effort to process these orders within a week.

Note: The Office of the University Registrar will not process any transcript requests from students who have an outstanding balance or unfulfilled obligation to the University.

Note: The Office of the University Registrar does not offer electronic transcripts at this time.

If you have any questions about ordering a transcript, contact us via email at transcript@unc.edu

How long will my transcript request take to be processed?

You should allow extra time when placing your transcript order. Transcript orders may take up to a week to be processed. Your transcript order is important to us and we are working as quickly as possible to fill the requests in the order they are received.

If this is your first request for a transcript since we transitioned to ConnectCarolina, and you have records prior to the Fall 2010 term, additional time is needed for validation of your student record. On average, your transcript order will be processed in about a week. If you have records prior to the Fall 2010 term, but have ordered a transcript since 2011, your transcript will be processed within 2-3 business days on average. If you do not have any records prior to Fall 2010 term, validation is not needed on your student record, and your transcript request will be processed within 2-3 business days on average. Please note that transcripts may be processed sooner than the average time specified, and you will receive an email notification when your transcript request has been sent or is ready for pick-up in our office.

Note: In order to best manage our heavy volume of transcript requests and keep our processes efficient, we cannot process transcript requests the same day. Your order needs to be placed online, and will be processed as soon as possible after transmission to our system. Please allow processing time if you are ordering your transcript to meet a time sensitive deadline.

When you place your order online through the National Student Clearinghouse, you will be notified as soon as the transcript has been sent. If it has been more than 5-7 business days since you placed your order and you need to check on the status, email us at transcript@unc.edu. If it has not yet been 5-7 business days, please allow us the additional processing time before contacting us again.

If you are a current student and an unofficial transcript will meet your need, you have access through your Student Center to produce an internal transcript immediately.
