Class of 2018 Senior Transcripts

Every Senior met with their school counselor for an exit interview in May. At that time, students shared what their post-secondary plans included and requested where to send their final transcripts. Please note that transcripts will not be ready until the second week of June. The final transcript is free of charge. If you decide to attend a different school than requested, please call 553-2515 or 553-2501 to let us know of the change.

Seniors who took Hawkeye Concurrent classes or PSEO classes handle requesting transcripts to be sent to the college they are attending (if not Hawkeye or UNI). Please see the information below to order a Hawkeye and/or UNI transcript to be sent to the college you are attending. If you had a 2nd-semester class, please confirm it is on the transcript.


Request Your Transcript

Requests for a transcript are made and processed online through the National Student Clearinghouse. The National Student Clearinghouse offers you convenient 24/7 access to request as many of your transcripts as you would like in a single session and the ability to track your order.

There is a processing fee starting at $4.05 per recipient and you must use a major credit card to pay at the time of the request.

Please call the Student Records Office at 319-296-4045 or 1-800-670-4743 ext. 4045 if you have questions.
