Official Lewis University Transcripts

The transcript is the academic record of the student. It contains all courses taken at Lewis University and the corresponding grades, credits attempted, credits earned and quality points, as well as the grade point average. Approved transfer credits are also on the transcript with only the course title and credits earned listed. The transcript is updated after each semester to include coursework for that semester. The Office of the Registrar safeguards the transcript. The University adheres to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, with regard to information contained on the student transcript. Students may review their transcripts at the Office of the Registrar. Copies are available, for a fee, upon written request by the student. Current and prior students will not receive a transcript until all financial obligations to the University, including but not limited to tuition, fees and fines, have been completely satisfied. Federal regulation requires a signature for the release of a transcript. There are several options for requesting your official transcripts. To obtain current information on the cost, request options and other pertinent information please go to http://www.lewisu.edu/admissions/ordertranscripts.htm.
