Due to COVID-19, the Registrar’s Office is working remotely. We are able to fulfill e-transcripts in a timely manner. Please note that there may be a delay in fulfilling official paper transcripts even if you pay for expedited shipping. We understand that some recipients will only accept hard copies of your official transcript and will do our best to periodically fulfill these requests. We hope all of our College of Law family stays safe and healthy during this time of crisis.
The University of Cincinnati College of Law partners with Parchment for ordering and processing all outgoing official transcripts, including paper and electronic PDF. As our agent, Parchment will collect all fees and send email confirmations of your orders.

Order Notifications and FERPA Compliance
Notifications will be sent to your email directly from Parchment indicating the progress of your transcript request. An official transcript is a copy of a student’s entire academic record from the University of Cincinnati College of Law, bearing the official College of Law seal and signature of the College of Law Registrar. Only official transcripts may be released to a student or sent to a third party. In recognition of the confidentiality of student records, an official transcript of that record will be released only at the request of the student, except under due process of the law. Parchment is a Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliant application. By proceeding through the checkout and clicking next, you (the student) are providing consent to release your transcript and to receive email notifications regarding your order.
Electronic Transcript Information
Online service is available 24/7 and time is recorded in Mountain Standard Time. Electronic transcripts carry a security feature verifying that the transcript has not been altered. Transcripts are delivered as a digital PDF and must be accessed by the recipient within 30 days. The College of Law Registrar’s Office does not determine the accuracy of the email address provided or whether the recipient will accept the eTranscript. You may want to confirm that the receiving institution is set up to receive electronic transcripts prior to using this option. Students may also upload PDF attachments to accompany their transcripts.
