Graduate School Transcripts

If you were enrolled only as a graduate student or are requesting only your graduate school transcript you must do so through the Graduate School. Graduate and undergraduate transcripts are considered separate records and require separate requests and payments.

Undergraduate Transcripts

Official Transcripts

A transcript is copy of your UWM record. In order for a transcript to be considered "official", it must:

  • Be printed on specially colored and coded transcript paper
  • Include an embossed university seal
  • An official transcript that you receive directly will be stamped "Issued to Student". Such transcripts may not be considered acceptable by third party recipients. Please check with the final recipient, before receiving an official transcript yourself.

Every time you request a copy of your official UWM transcript you must submit a signed request and pay a $10.00 fee.

Unofficial Transcripts

The unofficial transcript is not embossed with the University seal and usually is not used for applying to other universities or for employment purposes.

If you wish to have our staff process an unofficial transcript request for you, you may request, at no charge, one unofficial copy per semester of your undergraduate academic record to use for planning or advising. However, if you have an active UWM email address, you may also request unofficial transcripts through your PAWS account up to once per day by selecting "Other Academics" in your Student Center.

Ordering Undergraduate Transcripts

Transcripts can be requested using the methods below. However, students seeking official undergraduate transcripts only are strongly encouraged to use the On-Line Request as these requests are processed more quickly than requests submitted through other methods. Undergraduate and Graduate School transcripts are considered separate records, will require separate requests and payments and will be sent separately by the respective records office. An unofficial transcript may be requested only by fax or mail unless the requestor has an active UWM email account. Students with an active UWM email account may request unofficial transcripts at no charge through PAWS up to once per day.

If any UW-Milwaukee department or facility (e.g. the Libraries, Bursar, etc.) has placed a financial hold on your record, that hold must be resolved by you and removed by the department before a transcript can be released.

Expedited domestic delivery via Fed Ex and UPS is available for an additional fee. Online orders will be sent via Fed Ex and the additional cost will depend on delivery address. Orders placed in person or via fax and mail will be sent via UPS and the domestic delivery charge is $13.00. International delivery will be charged at the international rate. UPS and Fed Ex require a street address for delivery, including building and room/suite number if applicable. Post Office boxes cannot be used. Processing begins the first working day after you submit the request.
