Parchment is the approved transcript vendor for Valparaiso University. By partnering with Parchment, Valpo 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 and alumni order official transcripts through DataVU. For processing requests from prior to 1990, please allow up to 10 additional business days until those records are retrievable in electronic format.
Once placed in Data VU, orders for electronically delivered transcripts are typically fulfilled on the same day. Orders for paper transcripts are typically mailed on the same day that the order is placed, if the order is placed by 3 p.m. Orders for on-campus pickup are typically ready after 2 hours. Photo ID will be required for all pickup orders. Please note that the process will take longer for alumni requesting first-time access to Data VU.
Additional processing time is required for Law School transcripts because students of the Law School are given the option to add their class rank to their transcript.
