Transcripts and Records

Transcripts may be ordered via the National Student Clearinghouse website. See the Office of the Registrar’s website at registrar.ucmerced.edu/services/transcripts for further information. At times other than the end of the semester, the normal period required for processing transcripts for both registered and former students is 1 to 3 business days after receipt of the student’s request. There is a charge for each routine transcript request and an additional charge for each express mail transcript request. Electronic transcripts are available. The student’s financial account must be paid in full prior to the processing of the transcript request, and the transcript fees must be paid online through the National Student Clearinghouse.


Access to Records

Students are entitled by law and University policy to examine and challenge most of the records that the University maintains on them. These records are confidential and in most circumstances may be released to third parties only with the student’s prior consent. See information about the Family Educational Rights and Privacy act at registrar.ucmerced.edu/policies/ferpa. Transcripts and other documents submitted from other institutions and agencies are the property of UC Merced and will not be reissued to applicants, students, alumni or other parties.


Change of Name and Address

Students may request to change their name on official University records. Legally recognized proof of the change of name will be required before the petition is accepted and processed. (Students planning to graduate should file this request no later than the fifth week of the semester in which they intend to graduate.) Students may also update their address(es) using MyPersonalInformation. More information can be found at registrar.ucmerced.edu/policies/change-personal-information.
