 Frequently Asked Questions

May I request a transcript over the phone?

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 semester. How do I get my grade sent back to my school?

Students may obtain an official copy of their 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 or other college transcripts 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 and choose “Student Home”, “UCM Student Records”, and then choose "Unofficial Transcript".  The two drop down boxes may be ignored, unless those selections are pertinent to the search.  The information at the top of the document varies depending on if you choose “official” or “unofficial”, but please note, both versions are unofficial.  Coursework information is the same on both versions.

Unofficial transcripts do not indicate whether or a degree has been awarded.  Degrees earned are posted only to official transcripts. Dean's List designation will show with applicable semesters.
