Valparaiso University Policy Regarding the Release of Official or Unofficial Transcripts and Verification of Enrollment or Degree(s)

 

Official transcripts must be requested by the student through the Credentials eSCRIP-SAFE online ordering system, which is accessed through DataVU.

Unofficial transcript information may be accessed by current students, their advisors, 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.

Effective February 15, 2013
