Transcript Request - Ordering Official Transcripts
Current and former students can order transcripts through the Office of the Registrar. Transcripts can be delivered to you or an address you designate, or you can choose to pick them up.
Requesting official transcripts is done three different ways, depending on your current student status and the years you attended the university.
- Current Students - Students currently enrolled in classes (including students who were enrolled in the previous term)
- Former Students - Former students requesting transcripts from 1978-present
- Non-authenticated Former Students - Former students requesting transcripts prior to 1978
If you have access to My UW-Madison, you can request official transcripts from the Student Center module.
Click on My Academics in the Academics section.
Click on Request Official Transcript.
You will be re-directed to the Office of the Registrar's website to finish the transcript request. Much of your data will be imported from Student Center, making this the fastest and preferred method for current students to order official transcripts.
You can also order official transcripts using the Non-authenticated form at http://ordertranscript.wisc.edu. Requests made using the non-authenticated form will take longer to process.
(Note: Students who graduated after May 2011 will retain NetID eligibility for two years in order to access the Student Center portal in My UW.)
Former students graduating prior to May 2011 with records from 1978-present can request transcripts through http://myinfo.wisc.edu. You can login with your 10 digit ID number and PIN. If you do not know your Campus ID or PIN click on the "Forgot Campus ID or PIN?" link on the page. You may also use the Non-authenticated form at http://ordertranscript.wisc.edu. Requests made using the non-authenticated form will take longer to process.
After login at http://myinfo.wisc.edu, you will be in an application called "Student Center." In the "Academics" section of Student Center, click on the link entitled "My Academics". Then click on the link entitled "Order Official Transcripts." You will be re-directed to the Office of the Registrar's website to finish the transcript request. Much of your data will be imported from Student Center, making this the fastest and preferred method for former students to request official transcripts.
Non-authenticated Former Students
