Your academic record is part of your permanent education record and is therefore protected under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. As such, University staff will not release any protected information (e.g., grade information, personal data) to a third party without your express written consent (by letter, fax, or transcript request card). For questions about the types of information not protected by FERPA, please contact the Office of Student Administrative Services.
Transcripts issued will be embossed and individually sealed as official in a University marked envelope. It is institutional policy not to fax transcripts or grade reports to anyone for any reason because the integrity of transmitting student information in this way cannot be guaranteed.
The University provides one copy of your official transcript free of charge. All other transcript requests are $5.00 per copy ($10.00 per copy for guaranteed service within 24 hours). We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, checks, e-checks, money orders, or cash as payment. If you are paying by credit card, please include your credit card type, credit card number, and expiration date at the bottom of the request. Be advised that there is a 2.5 percent convenience fee charged for all credit card transactions at North Park University. Transcripts cannot be processed until payment is received.
To request a transcript, you will need to complete a Transcript Request Card and mail it to the address provided below, fax it to (773) 634-4051, or scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
