Transcript Requests

Records & Registration

The University of Nevada, Reno has several options for requesting transcripts. Please note that per Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents policy, a transcript cannot be produced for any individual who has an outstanding financial obligation to the university. Effective February 1st, 2017 Board of Regents policy also states that we shall not charge students for transcripts being delivered to another NSHE institution. For instructions and a list of institutions please read through the information below.  If you have a financial hold and place an order you will receive a communication stating that. Note: Once you have had the financial hold removed please call 775/784-4700 opt. 2 or email transcriptrequest@unr.edu to let us know so we can quickly process your request. We do not regularly check to see if the hold has been removed due to volume.

Unofficial Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts can be obtained at no cost through MyNEVADA or by submitting an Unofficial Transcript Request Form via fax to (775) 784-4283, or in person at the Office of Admission and Records, Fitzgerald Student Services building, 2nd Floor. Requests will be processed within 5-7 business days* of receipt.

Alumni and former students may now log in to MyNEVADA to view unofficial transcripts and educational records. In order to do so you must create a user profile for MyNEVADA. Go to MyNEVADA and select "Activate Profile." Next fill in all necessary information. If your email address is out of date you will need to submit a Change of Address/Email/Phone to Admissions and Records to process. You can bring your documents to the counter in Fitzgerald Student Services 2nd floor or you can fax the form to (775) 784-4283 with a copy of your photo ID.

If you are unable to successfully create a profile you may call (775) 784-MyNV for help.
