TRANSCRIPTS
UWF transcripts include all course work taken at UWF, degrees awarded, and transfer credit (institutions, courses, and grades). UWF transcripts only list UWF?s grade point averages. In order to process a request for a transcript, students should submit the request via ARGUS or Lighthouse or on forms available in the Office of the Registrar. A student?s signature is required to release academic records. The request should include student name, student number (in most instances this is the social security number), number of transcripts requested, names and addresses of recipients, and any special instructions (hold for degree posting, place in a sealed envelope, etc.). Transcripts that are sent directly to the student will be stamped ?issued to student? and may not be considered official by some recipients.

Students may also elect to suppress specific information that is normally reflected on the academic transcript. Beginning in Fall, 1993, the University began listing all transfer courses on the UWF transcript. Students may elect to suppress their date of birth, transfer work, or a combination of both from appearing on the UWF transcript. The student must indicate this ?option? at the time a transcript is requested. Summary information (the number of hours transferred) will remain on all the transcripts. Each time students request transcripts they must indicate on the request the information which should be suppressed. The following statement will appear at the end of the transcript for students who select the option of suppressing transfer credit: ?This student has requested that this transcript includes only course work taken at UWF.? Options for suppression of information are available only for hard copy transcripts and are not available for electronic (Faster formatted) transcripts used in the State of Florida.

The University automatically provides one transcript to each student with their diploma at the time of graduation. The charge for additional academic transcripts is $10.00 per transcript issued, and the fee is due prior to the issuance of the transcript. Official transcripts may be ordered via the web, by telephone, by mail or in person. The University does not accept facsimile requests for transcripts. There is an additional processing fee for telephone orders. All financial obligations to the University must be cleared prior to the release of a transcript. Transcripts ordered via the web or telephone are generally mailed within 1 to 3 business days from the day the order is received while transcripts ordered by mail are usually sent within 5 to 7 business days following receipt of the order.

Students may access an ?unofficial transcript? or Academic History at no charge through ARGUS or LightHouse.

Transcripts may not be picked up by another party unless the student has given written authorization with the request. The designated person will be expected to show a picture I.D. before obtaining the transcript.

Refer to the uwf.edu/registrar under transcripts for additional information.
