How to Request an Official Transcript

A student may request an official UCM transcript online through MyCentral, in person, or by mail, or by email, or fax using our pdf order form.  The Registrar’s Office cannot accept transcript requests by telephone.  The usual turn around time for transcript requests is 24 business hours once your request is received.  A hold on your record may prevent the release of transcripts. 

Types of Official Transcripts


UCM sends official transcripts via paper mail, fax, and e-mailed pdf.  Please note, some institutions will not consider a faxed or pdf transcript official.  Please check with the receiver prior to placing your transcript order.

The UCM pdf transcript is a pdf document attached to an e-mail.  It is not a log-in secured pdf nor does it go through an outside transcript provider such as the National Student Clearinghouse.  Some institutions will only accept pdf documents that are password protected.


Cost for an Official Transcript

Transcripts are $10 per copy ($15 if mailed outside of the U.S.).  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 (via campus mail) 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?

No, in order to ensure confidentiality requests cannot be taken by phone. 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.  Transcripts are $10 per copy ($15 if mailed outside of the U. S.). 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 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, “UCM Student Records”, and then choose "Unofficial Transcript". You can ignore the two drop down boxes, unless you do only want to see one level of coursework.  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 not you have earned a degree.  Degrees earned are posted only to official transcripts. Dean's List designation will show with applicable semesters.
