Official Transcript Request

Official transcripts can be ordered online, in person, or via paper form. Due to restrictions mandated by the FERPA privacy act, we are unable to accept email attachments, email requests, fax, or phone requests for official transcripts.

Commencement, and the four to six weeks needed to certify degrees at the end of each term, results in a high volume of transcript requests. While online orders process normally, paper request forms require up to seven (7) business days to process for pick up and U.S. mail.

Online Process

To order your official transcripts online, current and previous students will go through myUCF, which requires your NID to access. You will need to know (and have access to) the email account that was on file with your records at UCF to look up your NID. If you do not have an active email on record with UCF or cannot remember what your email address was, you will need to submit the Email Change form to us via fax or email.

To request a transcript, go to:

myUCF > Student Self Service > Student Center > Academics - Undergraduate and Graduate Careers > Open drop-down 'other academic' > Transcript: Request Official.

(You may have to set up security questions when accessing your account)

A $10.00 charge is required for each transcript ordered. Payment must be submitted at the time of request. Requests submitted without payment cannot be processed. Requests require one (1) business day to process unless you have asked for a hold. Transcripts requested for pick up are available next day only if ordered online. Unfortunately, there is no option for immediate or same-day printing or emailing/faxing a transcript at this time.

If you are requesting a transcript to be picked up, a photo ID must be presented at the time of pick-up. Transcripts can be picked up at our main office or one of our participating Regional Campuses. Transcripts requested for pick up that are not claimed within 30 days of printing will be discarded and must be reordered with full payment.

Online FedEx Ordering

When ordering transcripts online, you have the option to have FedEx deliver your transcript. The charge for a FedEx delivery is $30 ($10 for the transcript + $20 for FedEx). This is a flat rate for delivery anywhere in the U.S. This rate only applies to FedEx transcripts orders online through myUCF.

FedEx will not deliver to Post Office Boxes or any other Box address. Additionally, FedEx requests for international addresses are not supported (including Puerto Rico).

After ordering online, printing takes place the next business day and requests go out the same day as a Standard Overnight package. For example, if you order on a Monday night, the transcript will be printed on Tuesday, to be delivered on Wednesday. As is stated in the general instructions once ordered, transcripts cannot be canceled nor refunded.

Special Requests

Transcripts that require a form be enclosed (e.g., LSAC, AMCAS, or PHARMCAS) must be requested with a PDF attachment copy of the necessary form included in the order. PDF is the only format myUCF will accept as attachments. You cannot add a matching form or attachment if you have already placed an order online. If you cannot provide a PDF copy, you must either mail the Transcript Request Form (with additional forms to be attached) or drop the request and forms off in person.

Additionally, online orders may be delayed/held for the following special requests or reasons: Name Changes, Grade Changes, and International addresses. These types of special requests must be ordered with a paper Transcript Request Form and cannot be processed online. These must be dropped off in person or sent to us through the mail to be processed.

PDF Transcripts

PDF Transcript Delivery is an electronically delivered official UCF transcript sent over a secure network to the email address of the recipient you designate. PDF transcripts issued by UCF are considered official documents and are certified by a digital signature and special security characteristics. In addition, each page of the transcript contains the signature of the Registrar and the university seal.

Process

Before requesting PDF transcript delivery, you should verify that the recipient will accept an electronic transcript. Additionally, it is important that you verify the appropriate email address for transmission of the transcript. The recipient will receive instructions on how to authenticate the official PDF transcript. This will include steps the recipient must take to acquire an access code so that the transcript may be viewed.

Each transcript issued in PDF format has warnings that the document is intended for the recipient only. In addition, the email notification to the recipient states the same. UCF will not certify the authenticity of any PDF transcript that has been replicated or forwarded to any person or organization other than the intended recipient.

Notification

If you are sending the transcript to a third party, a courtesy email notification will be sent to you when the recipient has received their download instructions. Additionally, a courtesy email notification will be sent to you when the recipient has downloaded the PDF.

Expiration

The recipient has 30 days to download your PDF transcript before it expires. Recipients who have not downloaded your PDF transcript receive a reminder email a few days prior to expiration. If the recipient does not receive the email required to download the PDF transcript, please have the recipient check their junk mail for the email. Double check that you have spelled the email address correctly.

Paper Request

If you choose to use the paper form for one of the special requests, the Registrar's Office requires two (2) business days from when a request is received with payment to have the transcript ready for pickup or to send by U.S. mail.

The Transcript Request Form should be completely filled out in order for our office to process the request. This includes payment (Either by Credit/Debit/Check or Money Order) of $10.00 per transcript. No cash payments will be accepted. Additionally, transcript requests received without payment will not be processed.

Payments

If mailing the Transcript Request Form, please include a check or money order made out to "UCF" or include your credit/debit card information on the request.

If in person at our office, we accept Credit Card/Debit Card (Visa, MC, AMEX, Discover), Check or Money Order (made to UCF), and UCF Smart Card.
