ALERT: There may be delays in institutions receiving mailed transcripts due to the US Postal service experiencing an unprecedented volume increase and limited employee availability due to the impacts of COVID-19. Please plan accordingly or use the electronic delivery service.
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 written consent of the student.
There are four different ways you can order a transcript:
Please note that if you completed dual enrollment credits while in High School, it requires a UMS Student ID# for electronic transcripts. Orders will not be processed without a UMS Student ID# and will be denied by the National Student Clearinghouse for “No Student Record Found”.
The University of Maine at Fort Kent has partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse to provide secure, electronic delivery of official transcripts to an email address anywhere in the world.
The total cost for an electronic transcript is $4.00 per transcript or less if the receiving institution participates in the Electronic Transcript Exchange (ETX), which is payable by credit card when you place your online order.
CAUTION: If you attended the University of Maine at Fort Kent prior to 1990, electronic records will not be available and can only request by mail option. If you respond, “YES” to the question “Did you attend University of Maine at Fort Kent prior to 1990”, the order will remain in the queue and WILL NOT be processed.
All transcript requests must be in writing. You may use our convenient online request form, download and complete a printable Transcript Request form, or send us a letter which includes all of the following:
Mail your request to:
University of Maine at Fort Kent
23 University Drive
Fort Kent, Maine 04743
or FAX to 207-834-7887.
All transcripts sent directly to students will be marked “Issued to Student” and will generally not be considered official. Please indicate if transcripts need to be in a sealed envelope.
Please allow five business days from receipt of transcript request for processing. There is no charge to send a paper transcript.
University policy prohibits issuing official transcripts to any student indebted to the University.
Unofficial transcripts are merely copies of the transcript with no stamp or seal, usually used in-house or by student for personal use.
Official transcripts are transcripts in a sealed envelope that have the Registrar’s signature and the University Seal. The envelope is not to be opened until it reaches its official destination.
If you are a current or recently current student, have access to MaineStreet, and have no financial holds on your account, you should be able to order an Official Transcript from your MaineStreet Student Center:
Transcripts requested in this way will be processed within the next three business days. You should be able to check the status of your request by returning to the request. If you no longer have access to MaineStreet, official transcripts can be requested using our convenient online request form or by downloading and submitting a printable Transcript Request form.
If you have access to MaineStreet, and have no financial holds on your account, you should be able to print your own copy of an Unofficial transcript.
You should be able to generate and then print an unofficial “Issued to Student” copy of your transcript from your own computer, as long as you don’t have any financial holds.
Transcript requests may be faxed to us. Requests to fax transcripts to other locations must include appropriate fax numbers and the name/location of the individual to receive the fax. Please note that only unofficial transcripts will be faxed.
Email requests for transcripts will only be accepted if you include your request as an attachment to your email. It must be a written request, with the date and your signature.
Please understand that if you email the Transcript Request form as an attachment your personal information could be at risk; email is not a secure way to transmit sensitive information.
