Transcripts

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville transcript is a complete academic record of a student's enrollment at the university. Maintained by the Office of the Registrar, the transcript is a complete history of undergraduate or graduate level courses attempted and grades earned. Courses include those taken at UW-Platteville, transfer coursework evaluated by the university, and advance standing credits. Your semester grade point average and academic standing is shown after each term. The transcript also includes any earned degrees including the majors and minors completed.

Undergraduate and Graduate records are maintained on separate transcripts.

Unofficial Transcripts

Current students can view their unofficial transcripts in the Pioneer Administrative Software System (PASS). Students who are no longer enrolled may only request official copies of their transcripts.

Ordering Official Transcripts

As of February 1, 2014 UW-Platteville retained Credentials Inc. to accept transcript requests over the internet. Both your Date of Birth and Student ID number or Social Security number are required within the request in order to locate your transcript information.

Once your order is placed you may check the status of your order at any time.

Regular processing time is 1-3 business days from the date your completed request is received by the Office of the Registrar. The official transcript will not be released if there are any outstanding financial obligations with UW-Platteville. Students will have up to 30 calendar days to clear the hold or the transcript request will be purged requiring the student to create a new request once the hold is cleared.

FAQ

What is the difference between an official and an unofficial transcript?
An official transcript typically reflects a higher level of authentication and a reduced opportunity for someone to alter the record. Specialty paper is used and it includes the registrar's signature.

Can I track the delivery of my transcript?
Only orders shipped by Fed Ex will provide you with a tracking number from Credentials. Please note that Fed Ex cannot deliver to a P.O. Box. A street address of the recipient is required.

Can my transcript be delivered electronically?
Electronic delivery of a pdf transcript is available as one of the options when ordering through the Credentials Transcripts Plus system.

Can an official transcript be mailed directly to the student?
Yes, however, your transcript will indicate "Issued to the Student." Some third party recipients will accept these transcripts from the student if the envelope is unopened.

Can I pick up a copy of my transcript on campus?
Yes, but you must place your order online first. During the ordering process, you will be able to specify that you want to pick up the transcript in the Office of the Registrar. Your transcript order will be available for one month. If it is not picked up within one month it will be mailed to the home address on file.

If I am picking up my transcript from the Office of the Registrar, what will I need?
You will need a government issued photo ID (e.g. driver's license, passport)

Can I have someone else pick up my transcript for me?
Yes, but this information must be provided at the time your transcripts are ordered. The individual picking up your transcript must have photo identification.

If I select "hold for grades" or "hold for degree," how long will it take for the transcript request to be processed?
Normally, transcript requests with the selection "hold for grades" are processed within two weeks after the last day of final exams. If you select "hold for degree", it will be processed as soon as all outstanding requirements are fulfilled including outstanding grades, transcripts from other schools (if applicable), and department approvals.

Transcript Policy

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires that students provide valid authorization to release your transcripts. UW-Platteville is a participant in the Credentials Inc (TranscriptsPlus®) network that can automatically authorize transcript orders. Automatic authorization is based upon comparing specific information in your request with information on file in your UW-Platteville records. If your order is not eligible for automatic authorization, a printable form will be available at the end of the order process. You will have to print, sign and mail or fax the form to Credentials.
