  • Effective 9/01/13, Niagara University no longer charges a fee for transcripts.

A transcript bearing the signature of the Registrar (an official copy) is ordinarily forwarded from the Records Office directly to the authorized agency. However, if you need an official transcript, you can receive one in a sealed envelope.

If you would like to designate someone to pick your transcript up for you, you must furnish a signed letter granting authorization. The authorized person must bring photo identification with them.

If you prefer to send a letter it must include the following:

  • Your name (while attending NU), Your social security or social insurance number
  • Your date of birth
  • Your current address and phone number
  • Your handwritten signature
  • The complete address where you would like the transcript to be sent
