Academic Standards Transcripts

In accordance with The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and current Northern Michigan University policy, all requests for transcripts must be submitted in writing. Written requests must include name at the time of attendance at NMU, student identification number, signature and the exact address where transcript is to be sent. Transcript request forms can be printed from the Registrar’s website at: Send the transcript request with correct fees to the Registrar’s Office, 1401 Presque Isle Avenue, Northern Michigan University, Marquette, MI 49855-5323. Transcript request forms are available at the Student Service Center.

Normal processing time for transcripts is two business days, but one week for processing should be allowed at the end of each semester. A student’s entire academic record, undergraduate- and graduate-level work, if applicable, are included in each set of transcripts ordered.

Each official transcript costs $4. Unofficial transcripts are $1 each. Overnight mailing service is available for an additional fee. Call 906-227-2278 for information. A personal check or money order payable to Northern Michigan University are the only ­payment methods acceptable. First-class postage is included in the transcript fee. If the correct fee does not accompany the transcript request, it will be returned. Currently NMU does not provide a billing service for transcripts.

Transcripts will not be provided to persons who have any outstanding debts to the university. Financial holds are cleared by the Student Service Center, 2201 C.B. Hedgcock, 1401 Presque Isle Avenue, Marquette, MI 49855-5323. Telephone: 906-227-1221.
