Students’ official academic records are maintained in the Registrar’s Office. Transcripts of these records are not furnished to individuals, other institutions, or prospective employers without the student’s written consent.
Under Maine law, the University of Maine System (UMS) must provide current and former students with their official transcript and/or diploma upon request, regardless of a past-due balance or debt owed to the institution. Students with a hold due to a past-due balance should contact the Business Office at (207) 834-8650 to request a temporary removal of the hold so the student can then request their official record(s) through the National Student Clearinghouse or available self-service options. For more information about this process, please see University of Maine System Administrative Practice Letter IX-K.
NOTE: The Registrar’s Office no longer accepts email or paper requests for official transcripts.
The University of Maine at Fort Kent has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse to provide secure delivery of official transcripts to email or physical addresses anywhere in the world. Orders through the National Student Clearinghouse are the quickest and most convenient way to request both paper and electronic transcripts.
The paper transcript service costs $5.05 per transcript, with express delivery available for an additional fee. The electronic service costs $3.90 per transcript or $2.90 if the receiving institution participates in the Electronic Transcript Exchange (ETX). These fees are payable by credit card when you place your online order.
For Dual Enrollment Credits, students will require their UMS student ID number to request official transcripts at the National Student Clearinghouse. To obtain your student ID number, contact the Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (207) 834-7520. Student ID numbers will not be provided to individuals other than the student.
If you attended the University of Maine at Fort Kent prior to 1990, please email the Registrar’s Office at email@example.com to request a transcript template form for processing.
