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.

Transcripts for Richland and Baraboo/Sauk County Branch Campuses

As of July 1, 2018, UW-Richland  and UW-Baraboo/Sauk County, formerly campuses of University of Wisconsin Colleges, became branch campuses of UW-Platteville. The 2018-19 academic year is a period of transition and the UW-Colleges transcript continues to serve as the official academic record for these campuses. For transcript information, please refer to the UW Colleges website.

Unofficial Transcripts

Your student record, also called an unofficial transcript or university copy, contains information about your enrollment at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.  This is different from your official transcript because it can include notations for academic and administrative departments which are not included on the official transcript.  Current students can access this record in Pioneer Administrative Software System (PASS). Former students should request an official transcript.

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. Note: Undergraduate and graduate transcripts are separate records and must be requested on separate orders.

Current Students may log into PASS and select the "Request an Official Transcript" option from your Self-Service Menu Page. This will authenticate your order and transfer you to the Transcripts Plus website by Credentials Solutions LLC.

Former or current students may order their transcript via Transcripts Plus by Credentials Solutions LLC. You need to supply an e-mail address to receive updates on your order. Please keep a record of your order number.  Note: Recommended browsers include Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari.

FAQ

What is the difference between an official and an unofficial transcript?

An official transcript is printed on security paper or encrypted as a secure PDF so that third party recipients can trust that it is authentic.  Through Credentials Solutions LLC, an official transcript is the fastest and most secure method to obtain your academic record. 

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.  Please note if you attended prior to 2001 electronic delivery of a pdf transcript is not available.

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.
