An Ohio University transcript is the official record of a student's enrollment at Ohio University, including all undergraduate, graduate and medical college courses. At the request of the student, the transcript may be a comprehensive record of all coursework and degrees or may be limited to 1) undergraduate coursework and degrees, or 2) graduate coursework and degrees, or 3) medical coursework and degrees. Ohio University transcripts are printed on security paper with the transcript key on the back.

Because all academic transcripts are official, an "unofficial transcript" may not be ordered. We will fax an unofficial copy of a transcript to US colleges and universities, when a student needs this to facilitate the admission process. In addition, we will mail the official transcript to the same institution as a follow-up for verification purposes.

Information Privacy Policy/Automatic Authorization
Ohio University information privacy policy requires that you provide the school with a signed form authorizing release of your academic transcript before your order can be processed.

Some orders may qualify for "Automatic Authorization" without your signature. To qualify, your order must meet the following criteria:

  • the name on your credit card exactly matches your name as it appears on your University records and

  • either the PID, Date of Birth or Social Security Number, or any combination of two of these, must match what is on your University records and

  • you do not have attachments to accompany your transcript order.

If your order is not eligible for "Automatic Authorization," a form will be available at the end of the order process. Print, sign, and mail or fax that form and any attachments to the University Registrar (as shown on the form). Your order will be processed upon receipt of the form, unless you have requested that it be held for grade posting.

Transcript Fee

The fee for a transcript (in 2-3 business day) is $6.00 per transcript. Faster service (Transcripts-Now) is available for a fee of $12.00 per transcript. Transcripts-Now service means that transcripts are processed and available within one business day after the request and fee payment are received. Payment may be made by check or money order (payable to "Ohio University"), or by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover credit cards. Credit card information must include type of card, account number, expiration date, and name as it appears on the card. Credit cards must be used for payment with faxed requests.

Transcripts are sent by first class mail or electronically (to undergraduate admissions for certain colleges and universities in Ohio). We offer FedEx Priority Overnight Delivery for $15.00. This rate is for weekday delivery only. Deliveries to international addresses $33.00. Saturday delivery is not included with these services and FedEx requires a street address and will not deliver to a PO BOX.

Certain users of transcripts, such as college admissions offices, require that transcripts be mailed directly to them and refuse hand-carried transcripts. Some users require validated envelopes, which we provide if requested initially. Any additions/changes after delivery will require a new request and fee payment.

We do NOT fax transcripts. However, we do fax unofficial copies of academic records for students transferring to another school in the US for admission purposes, in addition to mailing official transcripts.

Processing Delays
If requested in writing, processing may be delayed until current term grades are posted, otherwise, transcripts will usually be processed within three business days. Transcripts will not be processed if financial obligations ("holds") exist for the student.
