If a transcript is not received within 2 weeks following the date it was sent from our office, it will be sent again at no charge to the student. We request that you check with the receiver to be sure that they have not received it and verify that the address provided was correct before calling our office to have transcripts re-sent.
Transcript Requests can now be requested by email Registrar@uni.edu, but still require a signed release. We have re-vamped our Transcript Request Form to be a fillable document. Unless you have an electronic signature file stored on your computer, you will be unable to sign the form electronically. As a result, you will need to print out the Transcript Request Form, sign it, and either fax, mail, or scan and e-mail it back to our office.
The name on the student record should be the student's complete and legal name. In evaluating and processing all name changes, the University reserves the right to require adequate and appropriate documentation, as warranted.
A name change request may be processed through a signed request form or an official application for admission or employment at the University. Additional documentation is not required for name changes due to marriage, divorce, or for changes to or from a formal name or initial. Additional documentation is required to alter the order of name, to change the spelling, add a title, delete or hyphen to an existing name, or completely change name.
Students will have access to their MyUNIverse account for life, email for 9 months following graduation, and online grade report for 3 semesters following graduation. Fall 2010 graduates forward will have access to their UNI e-mail account indefinitely. Password resets may be done through the Computer Consulting Center at 319-273-5555.

Such written consent must be signed and dated, must specify the record of information to be released, and the reason for requesting the release. Personally-identifiable information may be disclosed to other school officials who have been determined to have a legitimate educational interest.

Upon receiving a transcript request, it is normally processed and sent back out within 1-2 business days. By way of regular mail, a transcript can be expected to arrive within one to two weeks.
An unofficial grade report will NOT be sent with the diploma upon graduation. Official copies must be ordered by way of a transcript request form.
Other schools I have attended have issued free or inexpensive copies of my transcript post-graduation. Why does UNI charge $15?
The $15 charge for transcripts at the University of Northern Iowa was determined by the Iowa Board of Regents. The price fluctuates each year, and all three state institutions charge the same fee for their transcripts.
The Registrar's Office only issues official transcripts on security sealed paper when sent to the institution or home address. If the student wishes to request a transcript while in our office and take it with them immediately, we stamp the transcript "Issued to Student." This process makes the transcript unofficial.
If a current student needs to see their grade report, they can access the online grade report via their MyUNIverse account:
