University Registrar


Your transcript is an official university document that includes courses taken, dates of attendance, major, type of degree awarded, your cumulative grade point average (GPA) and all honors received while attending Carolina.

A transcript request is processed 2-3 days after receipt. If you have a financial obligation to the university, a transcript will not be released. 

Before You Order a Transcript

Follow the simple steps in this preorder checklist to make sure the process runs as smoothly as possible.

  1. Confirm that all grades and degrees have been posted to your record.
  2. Check the accuracy of your name. Complete a Name Change Request [pdf]  if your name is incorrect.
  3. Confirm that you have no outstanding financial obligations to the university.
  4. Verify the accuracy of the recipient’s email address or mailing address.

If you’d like an official transcript, you can order one online. The university does not accept faxed or emailed transcript requests.
