More transcript information

Electronic transcripts are sent in 24 hours or sooner when requested, M-F 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Otherwise they are sent the next business day. 

Transcripts can be mailed by standard U.S. Postal Service first-class delivery. Transcripts requested to be mailed are sent within three working days following receipt of the transcript request but frequently are mailed the day after receipt.  Shipping and handling fees will be applied.

Transcripts can be ordered as "hold for pickup" and will be printed for pick up in the Registration & Records Office after showing a valid photo ID.

Transcripts can be sent Express by Fed-Ex for an additional $27-$60 per address, based on the country of delivery. Shipping and handling fees will be applied.

With each delivery option, care will be taken to protect against the release of information to parties other than those authorized by the student, but UMKC assumes no responsibility for the accidental release of information to unauthorized persons.

You can request a transcript at any time. You have the option of completing a transcript request and indicating that you don't want the transcript sent until the current semester grades or degrees will appear on the transcript, OR you can have a transcript sent immediately. 

Final grades and GPA information is not guaranteed to be available on transcripts until approximately one week after the conclusion of finals. Degrees earned are not guaranteed to be available on transcripts until approximately 40 days after the conclusion of finals.
