How to Request an Official Transcript
A student may request an official UCM transcript online through MyCentral, in person, by mail, or by fax. The Registrar’s Office cannot accept transcript requests by telephone or e-mail (unless our PDF form is attached). The usual turn around time for transcript requests is 24 hours once your request is received. A hold on your record may prevent the release of transcripts.
Cost for an Official Transcript
Mailed and e-mailed (PDF) transcripts are $5 per copy. Transcripts can be faxed within the United States for $10 per copy. Transcripts cannot be faxed outside the United States. Faxed and e-mailed transcripts may not be considered official by the receiving institution. Please check with them before placing your order for a faxed or e-mailed transcript. Payment can be made via check (made payable to UCM), cash, or credit/debit card (Visa, Master Card, or Discover). Transcripts will not be processed until payment is received. Transcripts sent to UCM departments/offices for use on campus are free of charge and should not be requested online (the online request requires payment).

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Transcripts
Can you request a transcript over the phone/ e-mail?
Requests cannot be taken by phone or e-mail (unless our PDF form is attached) in order to ensure confidentiality. Federal law states we must have either your written signature or an online request using a secure PIN to authorize the release of your transcript.
Can requests be faxed?
Yes, you can fax your request to 660-543-8400. Please print and fill out our transcript request form. Faxed requests require credit/debit card payment. Transcripts not picked up in person can be faxed, e-mailed, or mailed. Mailed and e-mailed transcripts are $5 per copy. Transcripts can be faxed within the U.S. for $10 per copy. Faxed and e-mailed transcripts may not be considered official by the receiving institution/party. Please check with the receiving institution before placing your transcript order. Transcript fees are non-refundable. Transcripts cannot be faxed overseas.
Can my mother/friend/spouse stop by and pick up a copy of my transcript?
Someone can obtain a copy of a student's transcript only if the student provides them with written, dated, and signed permission for release of the transcript. This must include the name of the person who will be picking up the transcript. The person picking up the transcript must provide photo ID. Federal law prohibits release of grades or academic record information to anyone but the student without this special permission.
I am a student at another school, but I took a course at UCM this summer. How do I get my grade sent back to my school?
You may obtain an official copy of your University of Central Missouri transcript in the Office of the Registrar by showing your photo ID. See instructions above to request a transcript online, by mail, e-mail, or by fax.
Is a copy of my high school transcript on file in the Registrar's Office?
No. The UCM Registrar maintains only UCM academic records. It is the student's responsibility to obtain transcripts from previously attended institutions.
I took dual credit classes through UCM and want to transfer those credits to another university. What do I do?
Students who earned dual credit through UCM during high school may request an official UCM transcript online, in person, by mail, or by fax. The Registrar’s Office cannot accept transcript requests by telephone or e-mail (unless our PDF form is attached). Follow the instructions above on this page for more information on ordering an official transcript.
I don’t need an official copy of my transcript, but could just use an unofficial one. How do I get an unofficial copy?
Current and former students who attended Central after 1982 have access to unofficial transcripts via MyCentral. The Registrar's Office does not issue unofficial transcripts. Students can access their unofficial transcript by logging into MyCentral. Once logged in, go to the "Student Services" tab, “UCM Student Records”, and then choose "Unofficial Transcript". Under “Transcript Level” choose your level (either undergraduate or graduate). The system will default to an unofficial version of your transcript.
Unofficial transcripts include your name and your UCM student number. Your birth date and social security number are not included on the unofficial transcript. Unofficial transcripts list the degree, major, and minor (if applicable) that you are/were pursuing but do not indicate whether or not you have earned the degree. Dean's List designation will show with applicable semesters.
