Please read the following carefully.

Ohio Northern University provides electronic transcript service (eTranscript) through The National Student Clearinghouse, a third-party vendor. In order to be able to provide the eTranscript service, ALL transcript orders will be placed through the National Student Clearinghouse, and a fee will be charged. You may use any major credit/debit card to place your order.

Summer 2018 Transcript Availability:

Undergraduates, Pharmacy,  and MSA - Transcripts will be available for ordering on August 13, 2018.

Law students and Medical Lab Sciences students - Transcripts will be available for ordering on August 18, 2018.

Financial obligations to Ohio Northern University must be satisfied before a transcript can be released.

If you have a hold on your student record, your request will not be processed until the hold is resolved. Your transcript request will remain active for 30 days to give you time to resolve your hold. If after 30 days, your hold has not been resolved, your transcript request order will be cancelled. Your credit/debit card will not be charged until the order has been fulfilled.

Transcripts are $4.00 each plus the chosen delivery option fee (below). There is a $2.25 Nat'l Student Clearinghouse (NSC) on-line processing fee per delivery option/per recipient.


Delivery Options:

Electronic PDF- You have the option to request an electronic transcript to be sent via email. Electronic Transcripts are official and are sent through the National Student Clearinghouse. Transcripts are received by the recipient within 24 hours after it is sent. We recommend that you first check with the recipient before ordering to be sure they will accept it in the electronic PDF format.  Cost: $1.75 per recipient.

  • Electronic transcripts cannot be sent for students completing attendance before Fall 1994. Those students should select “Mail” option delivery method when ordering through the (NSC) on-line service. These transcripts will be processed manually by the Ohio Northern University Registrar’s Office.
  • If you choose to send an electronic PDF and the recipient never opens it, we cannot refund the cost of that transcript.
  • PDFs cannot be saved or forwarded.  They may be printed.

Hold for Pick-up: Transcript(s) will be ready for pick-up in the Ohio Northern University Registrar’s Office two hours after you receive your email notice that it is ready. (ONU needs a two-hour window to allow for internal processing.) Students must show ID when picking up a transcript. Transcripts not picked up after 30 days will be destroyed and a new transcript will have to be requested at an additional cost. No refunds for transcripts not picked up.  Cost: $1.75 per recipient.


Processing Options:

**Having your transcript held for grades and/or degrees is not an option.  If you wish to have your transcript accurately reflect semester grades, GPA, Dean’s List, degrees awarded, etc., then you should wait until the date listed above to place your order.**


You may upload up to three documents to be attached to or mailed with your transcript. Acceptable documents include scholarship applications or licensure request forms (e.g. LSAC, AMCAS). You will be presented with this option when placing your order. Processing time does not reflect delivery time. Ohio Northern University cannot be responsible for transcripts lost in the mail, or Electronic PDF transcripts not picked up by the recipient. No transcripts will be processed on days the University is closed.
