Western Michigan University, like other universities, issues academic history records (Transcripts) directly to current and past students and to third parties as requested by students. A transcript is issued directly to a student with proper picture identification. An UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT is for the use of the student on plain white paper and is distinctly marked as unofficial. For purposes of acceptance by other universities, this transcript is NOT considered OFFICIAL. Businesses and other agencies use their discretion in accepting this transcript as an official document for their particular use.
A transcript requested by a student to be sent to a third party (business or university) is considered OFFICIAL and is so noted. It is generated on security paper and signed by the University Registrar. If you are asked or required to provide a COPY of your transcript, please request the OFFICIAL COPY be sent to the third party.Please note: Holds must be resolved before a transcript can be provided.
