Electronic Transcript Request

The University now offers official electronic transcripts (etranscripts). The content of the official transcript is converted into a PDF document and delivered to the recipient by Parchment, the authorized delivery agent selected by the University. This is the most secure and the quickest method to deliver an official transcript, but the student should make certain that the recipient is willing to receive an official etranscript.

The Process

Current Students: Login to insideND and use the "Transcript Request" link (within the Student Academic Services channel on the Student Academic tab) to order an etranscript. Your authentication into insideND is the required "signature" for your transcript order. Continue through the ordering steps to send to the designated recipient.

Alumni: Login to your myNotreDame alumni account. You may need to create an account if you do not already have one. Your authentication into myNotreDame is the required "signature" for your transcript order. Continue through the ordering steps to send to the designated recipient.

Former Students: You will need to create an account using the Transcript Request site. Accepting the FERPA terms and conditions during the ordering process is the required "signature" for your transcript order. Continue through the ordering steps to send to the designated recipient.

Currently, etranscript requests are processed several times each workday, Monday-Friday. Once processed, the etranscript is sent to the designated recipient. Etranscripts are not processed over the weekend or during University holidays.

When the etranscript has been released by the Office of the Registrar, the transcript recipient will receive an email containing a secure link to access the official etranscript. The email will be sent by “Parchment” with a Notre Dame header. Recipients who seem not to have received the etranscript should check their spam folder to make sure the email was not intercepted by their spam filter. The recipient will have 7 calendar days to download the official transcript. If not downloaded during that period, another etranscript must be requested by the student.

As an added benefit of the etranscript service, the students will receive two notification emails: one when the etranscript has been sent and another when the etranscript has been downloaded by the recipient. Both emails will be sent by “Parchment” with a Notre Dame header. If the first email notification is not received within one business day, make sure the notification was not intercepted by a spam filter.

Although the University provides official electronic transcripts, some recipients may require official paper transcripts. Confirm that the recipient accepts official electronic transcripts prior to submitting the official electronic transcript request.

Saving Official Electronic Transcripts

The recipient has 7 business days to download the etranscript. A recipient can follow these approved methods to retain a copy.

  1. Save the transcript to a document imaging system
  2. Save the transcript to a secure storage space
  3. Print the transcript and store in secure file space

No matter which storage method is used, the recipient must make sure the document is secure and FERPA guidelines are followed.
