When your student is ready to apply to colleges, a copy of the University of Iowa transcript can be requested from the Registrar’s Office at https://registrar.uiowa.edu/transcripts

The student will receive a grade of “S” for satisfactory, equivalent to a C or higher letter grade, and earn three credits. The grade of “S” does not affect the student’s college or university GPA.

Once the student completes the form and payment, the University of Iowa Office of the Registrar will process their enrollment. University of Iowa transcripts are processed December 1, May 1 and August 1. Transcripts become available early the following month. For example, if you purchase the credits in January, they won’t be applied to a transcript until May, and you can request a copy beginning in June. You can order the transcript online at https://registrar.uiowa.edu/transcripts.

Student information will be processed by admissions three times per school year (Dec. 1, May 1, and Aug. 1) dependent upon the form and payment submission date. Transcripts will be ready to order in Jan., June, and Sept. respectively. Ordering a transcript before the student is processed will result in a blank document and will require you to reorder. To ensure this does not happen follow the guidelines below.

 

  • Form and payment submitted Aug. 1 – Nov. 30. Student information will be processed by admissions Dec. 1 and transcript will be ready to order in Jan.
  • Form and payment submitted payment Dec. 1 – Apr. 30. Student information will be processed by admissions May 1 and transcript will be ready to order in June.
  • Form and payment submitted May 1 – July 31. Student information will be processed by admissions Aug. 1 and transcript will be ready to order in Sept.

 

When transcripts are ready, a follow up email will come from jacobson-institute@uiowa.edu with ordering instructions. To inquire whether these credits will transfer to a specific college please contact the registrar’s office at that college.
