Important Information

  • Transcripts are free.
  • Submit a separate request for each transcript requested.
  • Official transcripts are released only after you have completed one course at NOVA.
  • The options to hold transcripts for Grade Posting and Degree Confer Date are not available at this time. If you want your transcript to include your current semester grades, submit your request for transcript AFTER you have verified that all of your grades have been posted to your record. You can use the Student Center Self-Service function to check on your grades.
  • If you have any monetary holds on your record, no transcript will be mailed. Check your unofficial transcript and holds online through the Student Center in NOVAConnect.
  • No transcripts will be issued if you fail to sign your transcript request form.
  • If attachments are required (i.e., for law or medical school admission services), paper clip the attachment to the transcript request form or include the attachment in your fax.
  • CEU transcripts should be requested through your campus Workforce Development/Continuing Education Office.
  • Allow one week for any special processing.
  • Coordinate in-person transcript pick-ups with your campus Student Services Center. Photo ID is required to pick up the transcript.
  • All transcripts issued are official and in a sealed envelope. DO NOT OPEN YOUR TRANSCRIPT if you plan to send the transcript to a college or organization. An opened transcript will be considered unofficial by most colleges and organizations.
  • If you have any transcript or graduation questions email the Central Records Office at
