Official transcript

Using the eTranscript Request Service, current and former IU students can electronically request and purchase an official copy of their transcript.

Request an eTranscript as an active student

Before you begin

If you are a current or recent IU student, use this process to electronically request a transcript. Note the following:

  • The eTranscript Request Service for active students is available through One.IU. Authenticate with your IU username and passphrase, which acts in place of your signature to give permission to release the transcript.
  • You can use PayPal to pay for your transcript, or charge it to your bursar bill. If you have an existing PayPal account, you can use it to pay via credit card, debit card, or bank account. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can use the guest account feature and enter a debit or credit card for a single transaction. To bill to the bursar, you must have current or future enrollment. Future enrolled students must also have prior, completed enrollment.
  • Hours of availability:
    • Monday-Saturday: All hours except 5-6am
    • Sunday: All hours except midnight-8am

Request an eTranscript

To request an eTranscript as a current or recent student:

  1. Go to eTranscript Request (Recent Students).
  2. On the "eTranscript Request Service-Review Transcript & Sign Agreement" page, read the instructions and check I agree to the terms above.
  3. Click Continue.
    Note:
    If you have a hold on your record, you'll see a message stating "You have one or more hold(s) on your record". You'll need to follow the instructions and address the issue before you can proceed with your request.
  4. If you have attended multiple IU campuses and have the option to select which one will print your transcript, choose the desired campus from the "Campus:" drop-down menu.
  5. The "Complete Order Details" page will display.
    Note:
    If you're not currently enrolled, the Include current and future registered classes and Wait to send my transcript until my current term grades are posted options will not be available.
    Complete Order Details page for current students
  6. Fill in the "Daytime phone number", "Email Address", and "Verify Email Address" fields.
  7. Use the "Transcript type" drop-down menu to select the type of transcript you want. If you are enrolled in a current and/or future term and want those courses on your transcript, check Include current (and future) registered classes; click More info for more about this option.
  8. Specify when IU should send your transcript.
    • Send my transcript now is the default selection.
    • If you want the request to be held until grades are awarded for a particular term, select Wait to send my transcript until my current term grades are posted. If all grades have been awarded, or if you were not enrolled in the prior term and are not currently enrolled, you won't see this option.
      • If you make a transcript request within 10 days of the end of the term, Wait to send my transcript until my current term grades are posted will be selected by default. If you uncheck this option, you'll see this message:

        The official transcript will not show your current grades at this time. If you need these grades on your transcript, select "Wait to send my transcript until my current term grades are posted".

      • If the current term is your first term at IU, Wait to send my transcript until my current term grades are posted will be selected by default, and cannot be unchecked. You must wait until current term grades are posted before a transcript can be printed. You'll see this message:

        We have determined that you have no prior grades. We will need to wait to send your transcript until grades are posted so that your transcript is not blank. Therefore, you will not be able to select "Send my transcripts now".

      • If you want your transcript held for summer grades, you'll see this message:

        If you choose to hold for grades, this request will be processed at the end of the second summer session (roughly mid-August). If you need your transcript sooner with any first summer session grades, choose "Send my Transcript now" and select the "Include current and future registered classes" option.

    • If you are scheduled to graduate at the end of the term, you can specify that the transcript be released only after your degree is awarded. If you are receiving multiple degrees, select the degree you want to be awarded prior to sending the transcript.
    • If you select any special instructions, the transcript request will be held and evaluated daily until the necessary data is on the record. Then, the transcripts will be printed automatically.
  9. Specify the transcript format and where IU should send your transcript. You may specify up to four different addresses in one transcript order. Depending on the campus where the transcript is being produced, there may be different options for transcript delivery.
    • Electronic Transcript (PDF): Enter the name, company or institution, and email address for the person receiving the transcript. The transcript will be sent via email as a secure PDF. It will be sent the same day or the next business day.
    • Paper Transcript:
      • Regular mail: The transcript will be sent via USPS mail for no additional charge. It should arrive within two weeks for domestic addresses and up to six weeks for international addresses. No tracking information is available. If tracking is required, select Express Delivery.

      Note:
      All transcripts produced by the Office of the Registrar are official and bear the Registrar's signature and the University seal. Each transcript will be placed in an envelope which has been sealed with the Registrar's signature on the back.
  12. If you need another transcript sent to a different recipient, click Add Another Address, and then complete the required information.
  13. Review your order total at the bottom of the page and click Continue.
  14. Review your order. If you wish to change any information in a particular section, click Edit after that session's details to return to the previous page and make changes. To cancel your request, click Cancel.
  15. Pay for your transcript request.
    • Bursar billing: If you are a current or future enrolled student, you'll see an option to have the charge billed to your bursar account. Confirm that you would like to post the charge to your IU bursar bill, and then click OK. You'll be taken to the "Receipt" page.
      • Bursar-billed orders will not display a confirmation number.
      • Bursar billing is not available for express delivery orders.
      • Even if your transcript request is being held, the charge will post to your IU bursar bill immediately.
    • Credit card, debit card, or bank account:

        Note:

      3. The "Order Confirmation" page will display, along with your confirmation number.
  16. To print the confirmation page, click Print Confirmation, or click Log out to exit the system. Click Order Another Transcript to place another order.
  17. The eTranscript Request Service will send a receipt to your email address. If you used PayPal, you will also receive a payment confirmation email message directly from PayPal referencing your "Indiana University Transcript Request".
  18. Once your bursar account or credit card has been charged, your order will be processed. Transcripts will be printed immediately unless your request included special instructions. If there are instructions to hold the transcript, it will be paid for immediately but held until the circumstance is satisfied (for example, your degree is awarded).
    Note:
    If you have a new hold on your account, once a transcript is ready for production, you will be notified to clear the hold.

Further information

  • Transcript requests that are billed to your bursar account are posted as separate transactions for paper and PDF charges. They'll appear on your account as "eTranscript Charge –Paper" and "eTranscript Charge –PDF", respectively, along with a total for each type.
  • IUPUC and IUFW students' transcripts are generated by the IUPUI campus. However, any charges billed to the bursar will appear on your IUPUC or IUFW bursar account, not IUPUI.
  • Bursar-billed requests where the charge fails to post programmatically are processed immediately. The bursar is notified to post the charge manually. See the eTranscript Request Administrative Pages job aid for more.
  • Bursar billing is only available if you are a current or future enrolled student (with prior enrollment) at the same institution generating the transcript. If you have a choice for which campus is generating the transcript and select a campus other than where you are currently enrolled, bursar billing is not available.
