Credentials Solutions is the approved transcript vendor for Valparaiso University. By partnering with Credentials Solutions, Valparaiso University is able to offer express shipping, transcript authentication, shipment tracking, email notification of status updates, 24 hour access to order status information, online payment, and secure electronic delivery options while maintaining our ability to fulfill requests for paper transcripts.
We are unable to release transcripts to students or alumni with any outstanding obligations to the University. Please resolve any outstanding obligations with the applicable offices before placing a transcript order. Student restriction details are available to current students through DataVU under the Students menu.
All currently enrolled Valpo students, alumni, and students taking courses offered through The Connecting Link, please order your official transcript through DataVU.
If you prefer to place your order over the telephone, rather than using the Internet, you can call Credentials, Inc. at 847-716-3005 to place your transcript request. There is an additional operator surcharge for placing orders over the telephone.
Students taking courses offered through The Connecting Link should wait at least six weeks after completing courses to place their order.
For a full list of schools using Credentials Solutions to send and/or receive transcripts, please see the Credentials eScrip-Safe Network Members List available online.
There is a charge of $3.00 for each official electronic transcript and $5.00 for each official paper transcript ordered online through Valpo’s approved transcript vendor.
Official transcripts must be requested by the student through the Credentials Solutions online ordering system, which is accessed through DataVU.
Unofficial transcript information may be accessed by current students, their advisers, and other academic departmental personnel via DataVU. Be aware that unofficial transcript data will not show the student name or ID number and will typically not be accepted for official transactions such as application for admission or as proof of a degree. The Office of the Registrar will not provide unofficial transcripts to any requestor, including University personnel.
Verification of enrollment for a current student may be requested in person during regular office hours or by completing and mailing the form to the Office of the Registrar (forms and contact information are found at: http://www.valpo.edu/registrar). When requesting verification, please sign the request. FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974) prohibits the release of your information without a written signature.
All enrollment verification for companies/employers (not requested by a current student) is performed by the National Student Clearinghouse through their online portal. Please be aware that any privacy hold on a record may prevent the Clearinghouse from verifying information due to FERPA restraints along with other constraints per Clearinghouse policy.
All degree verification for companies/employers (not requested by a current student) is performed by the National Student Clearinghouse through their online portal. Please be aware that any privacy hold on a record may prevent the Clearinghouse from verifying information due to FERPA restraints along with other constraints per Clearinghouse policy.
Valparaiso University will not issue official transcripts, duplicate diplomas, or verify enrollment or degree information, if there is any financial obligation or hold, including a collections hold, on the account of a student or alumnus.
