Order an Official Transcript

The Office of Registration and Records will be closed for Labor day on Monday, September 1.

The office will reopen on Tuesday, September 2 at 8:30am.

Requests for an official copy of your Butler University transcript may be submitted online through our Online Transcript Ordering service provided through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), a non-profit organization serving the higher education community. 

This service allows us to send electronic transcripts via a link, which is valid for 45 days. Electronic transcripts must be delivered directly to the intended recipient. The transcript link cannot be forward to another recipient. If other documents must be sent with your transcript, you will have the option to upload them at the time of your request.
