Transcript requests

A transcript is the record of your academic progress, including credit earned by examination, undergraduate transfer courses and degrees awarded.

How to order transcripts

The University of Nevada, Reno has several options for requesting either unofficial or official transcripts.

Unofficial transcripts

Unofficial transcripts can be obtained at no cost through MyNEVADA or submitting a transcript request form via fax or in-person at the Office of Admissions and Records.

Requests will be processed within five and seven business days (not including weekends or holidays) of receipt.

Official transcripts

Students can request official transcripts electronically through the National Student Clearinghouse. Official transcripts being sent to another NSHE institution will be sent at no cost to the student.

  • Current student (active NetID required). Login to the National Student Clearinghouse to verify your student status and begin your transcript order. If you are unable to login with your NetID, please use the Former Student option below.
  • Alumni and former students (no login required). To request an official transcript, please navigate to the National Student Clearinghouse use their Transcript Ordering Center to find the University and submit your request.
  • International students. If you are an international student ordering a transcript through the National Student Clearinghouse you will need to use the "Former Students" link. Enter your NSHE ID in the "Student ID" field and leave the "SSN" field blank.

How much does it cost to order official transcripts?

The University of Nevada, Reno does not charge for transcripts being sent to another NSHE institution. However, there is a cost to order and send transcripts to non-NSHE institutions. Those costs are described in the table below.

Fee holds and transcripts

Please note that per Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents (NSHE) policy, a transcript cannot be produced for any individual who has an outstanding financial obligation to the University. If you have a financial hold and place an order, you will receive a communication confirming that obligation. Once you remove the financial hold, please call (775) 784-4700, option 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 holds have been removed due to the volume of transcript requests.
