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. The fastest and easiest way to order a transcript is on-line through the National Student Clearinghouse (www.getmytranscript.com). Transcript request forms can also be printed from the Registrar’s website at: www.nmu.edu/registrar. Send the transcript request with correct fees to the Registrar’s Office, 1401 Presque Isle Avenue, Northern Michigan University, Marquette, MI 49855-5323. On campus, 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. Note that once a student is awarded their bachelor’s degree, that portion of the student’s academic record is frozen and cannot be updated or altered.
Each official transcript costs $5. Unofficial transcripts are $2 each. A small additional processing fee is charged by the National Student Clearinghouse for on-line orders. Overnight mailing service is available for an additional fee. Transcripts will not be provided to persons who have any outstanding debts to the university. Financial holds are administered by the Student Service Center, 2201 C.B. Hedgcock, 1401 Presque Isle Avenue, Marquette, MI 49855-5323. Telephone: 906-227-1221.
