General office hours are 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The Registrar’s Office is open until 8 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month (Sept.- June).
It is the responsibility of the Registrar’s Office to verify students’ dates of attendance, degrees awarded, enrollment status, demographic information and expected date of graduation. Inquiries for official enrollment information are to be submitted to the Office of the Registrar.
An academic transcript is a certified document intended for use by parties outside of the educational institution and is an unabridged summary of the student’s academic history at that institution.
The official transcript is a legal document which contains:
1.The signature and title of the certifying official.
2. The institutional seal and date of issue.
3. Statement forbidding the release of information from the transcript to a third party as required by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
Transcripts are issued only by staff of the Registrar’s Office. Transcripts, copies of diplomas, enrollment and licensure verifications will not be provided in cases where outstanding financial obligations remain.
In order to obtain a transcript, a written request is required. Forms are available in the Registrar’s Office, or requests can be made electronically via the Registrar Office web site at www.umassmed.edu/registrar. The request may also be made in the form of a letter that must include the following:
- Printed name and signature
- Any former name(s) used on university records
- Current address, telephone number and email address (if any)
- Date of birth
- Graduate degree received
- Graduation date and/or dates of attendance
- Complete address where transcript is to be sent
- Number of copies requested
There is no charge for transcripts. Transcripts are sent via first-class mail and sent within two working days after the written request is received.
When requests are made in person, appropriate documentation for identification, such as a student picture ID or driver’s license, is required. Telephone and email requests are not accepted.
File copies of undergraduate and/or graduate transcripts from another institution will not be released (back) to the student or to a third party. The request will be returned to the student or third party with a statement explaining the policy.
