Students and alumni in need of copies of their transcripts from Carolina can now order them online.
Until now, individuals wanting copies of transcripts had to request them in person, via mail or fax. Also for now, the transcripts will still be delivered by mail in hard copy form.
“The logical next step in this effort is to implement an electronic transcript service that will provide the option of ordering a secure electronic version of transcripts,” said Chris Derickson, University registrar, adding that the online ordering of transcripts is the first step in a larger effort to improve the transcript ordering process.
To place an order, alumni should:
Alumni will see an ordering screen, followed by additional pages that require entry of personal information, verification and online consent as well as payment. Once the online order is received, the registrar’s office processes and sends the transcript while the National Student Clearinghouse system generates an email to the alumnus. Transcripts will be sent via U.S. mail unless the alumnus chooses and pays an additional fee for FedEx service. No charges will be applied until the transcript order is filled and sent out.
(The fee for online ordering of transcripts is $9.25, payable by credit card. This includes $7 to UNC for the transcript and $2.25 processing fee to the National Student Clearinghouse. Charges are not applied until the transcript order is filled and mailed.)
Processing time for transcripts is taking an average of six to seven business days, officials said.
This new functionality also provides alumni access to other information, including:
Additional information is available at the Office of the University registrar’s webpage on transcripts.
Students also will be able to view student loan deferment notifications that the National Student Clearinghouse has provided to loan holders, based on information provided to the clearinghouse by the registrar’s office.
Current students, as they do now for most student services functions, will login to their ConnectCarolina Student Center via the MyUNC portal.
Unofficial transcripts or transcripts for internal purposes (applying to a program within UNC) may be ordered through the Office of the University Registrar free of charge.
Enrollment certifications (required for scholarships, loans and other purposes) also can be ordered and printed online free of charge.
