Don’t Pay for College Twice! Get College Transcripts to UND
Before students register for classes at Orientation, it’s very important that our advisors are aware of any college-level credits they may have earned in high school.
If we don’t have students’ official college transcripts on file, the college credits already completed won’t be able to be transferred to UND. This could cause students to have to retake classes and end up paying twice for these credits.
Keep in mind the following when requesting transcripts:
- If students attended high school in North Dakota, their college transcripts will not need to be sent to us.
- High school transcripts do not include official information on college credits earned.
- High schools are not able to request college transcripts for students.
- Colleges and universities charge a minimal fee ($5 to $10) to provide official transcripts.
Ask your students to request their official transcripts be sent directly to UND as soon as grades are posted and at least 2 weeks prior to coming to Orientation. Students can also bring the transcript with them to Orientation.
Updated High School Transcripts
In addition to official college transcripts, if students have updated high school transcripts, they should be sent to UND no later than August 1.
Students should send updated high school transcripts if they had a GPA that didn’t quite meet UND’s scholarship criteria when they applied and they have increased their GPA since then. If this is the case for your students, have them send updated transcripts to the UND Office of Admissions right away.
All transcripts can be sent to this address:
UND Office of Admissions
