Other Transcript Information - Page 2

Social Security Number/Date of Birth

Your Social Security Number and Date of Birth are considered private. The Office of the Registrar no longer lists the Social Security number or year of birth on a transcript. The Date of Birth is listed on your transcript as follows:

Date of Birth: 01-01-XXXX

Processing Time

Transcript orders are processed as quickly as possible with electronic transcripts going out a couple times per business day and paper normally within two business days of receiving the request. Please allow extra procesing time if you created a new Former Student account with Parchment, our contracted vendor, or at the end of the semester due to the volume of requests normally received.

Miscellaneous Information

The University issues academic transcripts only for academic work completed at Notre Dame. Requests for transcripts of courses taken at other institutions must be directed to those institutions.

Evaluative information such as courses completed, grades earned, etc. cannot be issued to an outside party unless the student/former student has given the Registrar written permission to release this information to that party. The Registrar may, however, disclose "directory information" as allowed under The Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) without special permission. A list of the directory information can be reviewed at The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act web page.

Effective March 1, 2000 the University of Notre Dame discontinued embossing the University seal on its transcripts. This procedure has been replaced by using secure transcript paper with the preprinted light blue University seal overlaid by the University Registrar's signature in white.

Grading scale and calculation information

Grading scale and calculation information can be reviewed on the Office of the Registrar website. Grading scale information prior to 1988 is also available.
