How to Request a Transcript

Email or Call

If you have any questions, please email or call. Staff are working remotely during the COVID-19 outbreak. We are requiring all students to order online and request electronic PDF's during the COVID-19 outbreak. These transcripts are considered "Official Transcripts".


Order Transcripts Online
NMU has collaborated with the National Student Clearinghouse to provide online transcript ordering. All current and former students can order transcripts online anytime using a major credit card. Requesting online is convenient and fast and you will get automated status notifications via text and email. During the COVID-19 outbreak, all students should request electronic transcripts. The automated electronic PDF's are sent to a designated email account in about 30 minutes or less.


Special Instructions for Pre-1993 Transcripts: Alumni will receive an emailed transcript produced remotely. The processing time may take 3-5 business days during the COVID-19 outbreak as the NMU campus is closed and all staff are working from home. In order to trick the electronic system into accepting your online request, please check "YES" to Currently Enrolled. You can still add your true start and end dates at NMU, so we can locate your complete record of attendance.

To order an official transcript(s), log into My.NMU. Click on the Student Services tab, click the Order/Track Transcript link. Order status and updates will be sent by email and/or text. You can also Track Your Order Online
Transferring?  If you pre-enrolled for the fall/winter semester at NMU, those courses will appear on your transcript. You will be required to provide an additional transcript to your new college once those courses are completed or dropped.

How to guide


Former NMU Students

Click on this link: Request a Transcript Online and read the information! The green start button is at the very bottom of the page. There is an option to attach a transcript matching form if needed, for institutions such as PharmCAS, PTCAS, etc.  You can order as many transcripts as you like in a single session. Order status and updates will be sent by email and/or text. You can also Track Your Order Online.


If you are experiencing technical difficulties with submitting transcript order information on the NSC site, try using a different web browser such as Chrome or FireFox,  and/or delete your history/cookies.​ Some users experience problems using a smart phone. If that's the issue, using a computer works best.

Financial/Laptop Holds

If you have a financial or laptop hold, your transcripts will not be released. Please contact the Student Service Center at 906-227-1221 or log into the NMU e-bill payment center.

May Graduates

Check the Hold for Degree Posting option if you want to wait for your transcript to state that you have graduated. (Currently available for May graduates only). Previous degrees are already posted to the transcript. 

Degree posting requires a verification process that takes extra time after grades are posted to appear on a transcript. To check and see if your degree has been posted to your transcript - log onto My.NMU, go to the Student Services tab and go to the Unofficial Transcript link. When you request a transcript, you may request one of the following:

  • Send transcript now 
  • Send after degree is posted to transcript - Please note that Degree Postings will begin on May 22 for undergraduate students after the option to change their course grading method has expired.
