What is a transcript?
A transcript is a comprehensive record of your academic progress. Your name will appear on your transcript as it appears on your university record.
What is an official transcript?
Official UF transcripts are printed on security paper that includes tests for authenticity. When mailed, each transcript will arrive in an individually sealed University of Florida envelope with the University Registrar's stamp and signature across the envelope flap.
How can I order my transcript?
Go to top of the Student Self-Service left menu and select the appropriate item under the Transcripts category.
What is an unofficial transcript, also referred to as a transcript view?
Unofficial UF transcripts are not printed on security paper. Current and former students can view and screen print a copy of their unofficial transcript whenever they need to. While this copy may not be accepted as official by other institutions, insurance companies or potential employers, it is free and available online for immediate review for grades checking, advising, interviews, etc.
How can I view or screen print my unofficial transcript?
Go to top of the Student Self-Service left menu and select Current of Former Students under the Transcripts category.
Without a credit card, how can I order my transcript?
Since ordering with a credit card is required for online orders, you should consider purchasing a prepaid credit card. Otherwise, please contact us at 352-392-1374 for specific instructions on submitting a written request. You may also come in person to the Registrar's Office, 222 Criser Hall, with a personal check or money order.
How much is a transcript?
What credit or debit cards are acceptable for payment?
Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Diners Club.
What is the difference between a current student and a nonenrolled student?
Current students are registered for the current term or the immediate past term. All others are nonenrolled students. The transcript order system automatically determines the charge based on your enrollment status.
Why does the university charge for transcripts?
While state statute long ago authorized charging for transcripts, UF never did until just recently, when it needed to recover the costs necessary to print and mail the documents.
Can I provide my credit card information by mail or over the telephone?
No, you must submit your credit card payment through the secure online system.
How many transcripts can I order?
You can order as many as you need. If you order transcripts in person at the Registrar's Office, there may be a limit if there are lots of students requesting on-demand transcripts.
What is the fastest way to order transcripts?
What can delay my transcript order?
Incomplete payment or a hold on your record will prevent release of your transcripts. Once an order has been placed, you must resolve all holds and complete payment within 60 days. If your order expires, any payments previously received will be retained and cannot be applied toward future transcript orders.
Can I pick up my transcript in person at UF?
If you place your order in the 222 Criser Hall computer lab, your name will be called as soon as the transcript is ready. The Registrar's Office is open Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m. All you need is a picture ID and a credit card.
Can I request my transcript with an electronic signature?
No. Your letter of request or a completed PDF request form mailed to the Registrar's Office must include your handwritten signature.
Can I fax my order to the Registrar's Office?
No. Because payment must accompany the order, faxed transcript orders are not accepted.

Can someone else pick up my transcript?

Can I order a transcript to print at a future date?
